These Terms & Conditions form part of the Customer Guide and are incorporated into the Business Customer Contract between each Customer and Plan Communications Limited (“plan.com”).
Each plan.com Tariff includes a monthly allowance for minutes, data or texts or a combination thereof (the “Inclusive Allowance”). Any minutes, data or texts (as applicable) up to the amount of the Inclusive Allowance will be provided as consideration for your monthly Charges.
Inclusive Allowances apply for one calendar month only and cannot be rolled-over to a subsequent calendar month.
Usage outside any Inclusive Allowance or which exceeds any Inclusive Allowance will incur additional charges for the customer (“Additional Charges”) and will be added to a Customer’s invoice as Charges that are additional to their selected Tariff (“Additional Charges”).
Please see Tariff Guide – Bolt Ons for more information.
All Tariffs and usage will be subject to the plan.com Fair Usage Policy which can be found at https://guides.plan.com/fair-usage/.

Incurred if a Customer makes a call or sends an SMS to certain non-geographic numbers or chargeable numbers operated by third-parties (e.g. quiz lines, help lines, directory enquiries etc).
The charge when making calls to chargeable numbers is split into two parts. There’s the access charge, which is what we charge you, per minute, for connecting the call. Then there’s the service charge, which is decided by the organisation you’re calling, who have to make you aware of the charge. The total cost of the call will be the access charge, plus the provider’s service charge.
If you’re making a service call, you should check the prices with the provider. They’re often operated by third parties, so we can’t let you know when their prices change.
Premium text service numbers usually start with the prefix 06, 07, 08 or 09 and are usually a five- or six-digit number. The services include entering competitions, donating to charity and voting on TV talent shows.

The following usage is excluded from a Customer’s Inclusive Allowance:
While roaming in Europe Zone countries that border with non-Europe Zone countries (e.g. The Republic of Cyprus borders with the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus), it is possible for a roaming device to connect with a mobile mast in the non-Europe Zone country. In these cases, voice, text and data charges will be levied at the higher, non-European rates (e.g. data usage may cost up to £6 per MB). plan.com is not responsible for Charges incurred when connecting cross-border and to prevent the chances of so connecting, we strongly recommend when Roaming, to deactivate the automatic network selection through a user’s handset settings.
If a Customer is Roaming in any country that is not in the Europe Zone, then the Customer will be considered as Roaming in the World Zone.
Maritime, Satellite and Airborne
Note that usage on maritime, satellite and airborne networks will not be provided for in any Inclusive Allowance and will be charged at £6 per MB even if they are based in the Europe Zone. plan.com cannot be held responsible for Equipment accessing these networks and is not liable for any Additional Charges that are incurred from Equipment using these networks, even if accidental. Please take extra care when travelling off-land or within areas not covered by mobile operators. We suggest putting your device into flight-safe mode in these situations or turning off roaming data on your device.
International Calls and Texts
International usage includes calls and SMS that originate in the UK and are received by services outside the UK. International usage does not include making calls or sending SMS while abroad (these are classed as roaming usage, no matter where the call or SMS is received). Calls and SMS back to the UK from destinations outside the Europe Zone are charged as International Calls. International usage is not is not included within unlimited call or unlimited text allowances.
