Can CheapCalls.co.uk overcharge me?

No, the rates of our cheap access numbers are set by Ofcom, UK's telecommunications regulator. Your landline phone company will charge you the rate which is set by Ofcom. The rate you are charged on your phone bill depends on your telecom provider's billing system and any surcharge they may make. Contact your telecom provider for more details.
