Call charge (tariff)

Please select destination country

- Minimum call charge is 1 minute. The following minutes count as units at 6 seconds per unit. A sub-unit fragment on each call is rounded to 1 unit.
- USA charging rate does not include both Hawaii and Alaska.
- Using CAT 001 from any fixed-line telephone, customer will receive the separate service invoice issued by CAT.

International call to domestic Toll-free number is not free-of-charge. For example, BNO that begins with 800, 866, 877 or 888 in USA are USA domestic Toll Free and are free of charge for domestic call in USA only. If the call is made from foreign country, the caller will be responsible for international direct dial (IDD) service charge. To make a call, dial IDD prefix followed by country code and the domestic Toll-free number, in this case, 001 1(for USA) 800xxxxxxx or 009 1(for USA) 800xxxx. The caller will be charged for IDD at 001 or 009 rate.

Another example would be when activating a HSBC credit card via call center. Number +18663896638 is available free of charge only when the call is originated in USA. If the call is made from Thailand with 001 prefix, by dialing 00118663896638 the caller will be charged for IDD at 001 rate.
