A rebate is applied to the text element of all valid calls originated via 18001 or 18002 when either or both ends are in text mode. This rebate is only applied to parts of the call which are in excess of the minimum charge i.e. no rebate is applied to the part of the call which is less than the minimum call charge for that call.
e.g. a call with 50% text (on the element call greater than the minimum charge) to a destination with 60% rebate will attract 30% rebate (to the charges above the minimum charge).
The Unlimited Weekend Plan, Daytime and Evening Calls are subject to rebate; Weekend calls are inclusive for the first hour of each call. Charges for the Unlimited Weekend Plan are shown in Section 55Part 1of the BT Price List
