: Hi folks,
: 1.Do you know what does this phrase mean:
: to pay a flat fee
: 2.What is a "national number"?
1. To pay a flat fee is to pay one price for a number of things that can be purchased separately. So someone might pay a flat fee of $1000 for a vacation including rooms, meals and transportation.
2. A national number is one that can be dialed - usually toll free - from anywhere in the nation.
