    What to answer to "thank you"?

    I've just moved to the UK and the house-owner asked me to answer the phone when she is not at home... Sometimes I find it difficult to understand the people on the phone but I never know how to end the phone call politely when they say "All right, thank you"
    What should I say in this case? "You're welcome, bye"?
    Or what is the polite answer to thank you when I end the conversation?

    Thank you in advance

    "You're welcome, bye" is fine.
