Guide to 1300 Call Rates and Charges

Call Cost to the Caller

Callers to a 1300 number are charged the cost of a local call from any Australian landline. Rates may vary between carriers and depend on the landline plan they're connected to. The same applies to mobiles and carriers usually specify the rate as part of their rate sheet.

Call Costs to the 1300 Account Holder

The 1300 number account holder is charged for every incoming call. Call rates depend upon the plan, call origin and where the 1300 number is being routed to i.e. landline or mobile.

  • Included Calls (Call Credits) - value of calls included in the monthly access fee. Call credits are used against any call types.
  • Local Calls - rate applicable to local calls made to the 1300 number from a landline. Only applies when the 1300 number is being routed to another landline number.
  • National Calls - rate applicable to national calls made to the 1300 number from an Australian landline. Only applies when the 1300 number is being routed to another Australian landline number.
  • Mobile Calls - rate applicable to calls made to the 1300 number from any Australian mobile. Only applies when the 1300 number is being routed to an Australian landline.
  • Calls to Mobile - if the 1300 number is being routed to an Australian mobile, all calls are charged at the same rate, regardless of call origin or if it's made via a landline or a mobile.

Cost of the Actual 1300 Number

There are two ways of getting the actual 1300 number. The number can either be issued free of charge from the Free Pool range or you can buy the number through ACMA Smart Numbers. Free Pool numbers are issued at the time of connection and usually don’t have a highly memorable numeric pattern. The range of Smart Numbers include Phone Names, Phone Words or numbers with an easy to remember numeric pattern.

No Need to Spend a Fortune on a Smart Number

Smart numbers have been very popular since being released by ACMA in 2004. There have been over 57,000 numbers sold and continue to be the preferred choice. 1300 numbers account for over two-thirds of the sales.

Most of the numbers are sold for $250 plus the administration fee. This is a once-off cost and the purchaser is given the ROU (Rights of Use) to the number. This entitles the holder to full rights to the number and enables them to trade, lease or on-sell the number. It can also be disconnected from active service for a period of time. This is not the case with Free Pool numbers which always need to be connected to a network.

Good Reasons to Buy a Smart Number

There are some good reasons to buy the actual 1300 number and the upfront cost is well worth it. Not only does it secure full rights to the number, allowing it to become a business asset, it also opens up a huge choice of highly memorable 1300 numbers which are more effective for marketing purposes.

Larger Choice of 1300 Numbers

Choosing a new number for your business or upgrading an existing one shouldn’t be taken lightly. A phone number is an important point of contact and the quality of the number i.e. memorability can affect the number of new business enquiries. Smart numbers offer a much broader range of numbers to choose from. The numbers are much more memorable, and the right choice will enhance the business in more ways than one.

Have Full Rights to the Number

Being allocated the ROU (Rights of Use) to the 1300 number will ensure you’re never at risk of losing the number (subject to ACMA terms and conditions). And that means any marketing investment in the number will remain with the business and it won't go to a competitor.

Use the Number for More Than Just a Point of Contact

Smart Numbers are an excellent choice when used for marketing and advertising purposes. They have a much higher recall value i.e. much more memorable and will ensure customers are more likely to remember them. And that means more business enquiries and more sales. The additional revenue should more than pay for the cost of the 1300 number.

If you would like some help in choosing the right number and see how much they cost, take advantage of our Free Search and Advice service. We’ll search the ACMA database for a list of suitable numbers and let you know their price. You can then make an informed decision and weight up the pros and cons of making the investment.

Benefits vs 1300 Number Cost

The cost of the 1300 number is easily justified by the many benefits it will deliver for your business. The wide range of features and functions which can be tailored to your business requirements, the ability to secure a highly memorable number, and the nation-wide nature of the service, all combine to deliver outstanding results. And all that from as little as $15 per Month plus calls.

One Number for the Life of the Business

No need to change or have multiple numbers if the business moves premises or expands. Being nation-wide numbers and not restricted to a telephone exchange, a 1300 number will accommodate any type of business growth.

Mobile and Local Landline Numbers May Limit Your Market Place

A 1300 number will make your business look more significant and boost your business presence. It will appeal to a larger audience and help attract more customers. It will make a much greater impact than a mobile or a landline number.

Get Better Results from Your Marketing Activities

1300 numbers are proven to increase marketing response rates and generate more inbound calls. You can also track your marketing campaign results for a better understanding of your business operations.

Make It More Appealing to Call Your Business

Callers to the 1300 number are only charged a local call rate when calling from an Australian phone line, making it more appealing to call the business and generating more business enquiries.

Improve Your Business Image

Included call handling features such as Auto Attendant and Business Intro Message will make your business sound even more outstanding and add another level of professionalism. Combine it with a professionally recorded message to complete your business image.

Improve Your Call Handling Process

Included call routing features will ensure your business gains a much higher level of call management flexibility and improve the call handling process. Geo routing will enable you to direct calls from specific areas to a dedicated answering point. Time based routing will automatically direct calls to an answering point dependent upon the time of the call.

Choose from Australia's Largest List of Business Numbers

The range of numbers available is much greater than landline numbers. You can easily secure a highly memorable number to help your marketing response rates. Be 5x more memorable with a Smart Number that comes as a Phone Name, a Phone Word, or an easy to remember number sequence.
