    Under the Free Tier Service, you can avail 750 hrs per month of RHEL on Virtual servers EC2 for free if you choose to use the T2 micro instance. Exceeding these 750 hrs or choosing any other instance type would incur charges and the costs will be applicable based on the number of hours of usage.

    You could go through your billing dashboard for further details on the charges. You go through the Free Tier<https://aws.amazon.com/free/> link to understand services that are covered under the program and the usage limits to avoid being charged unexpectedly.

    Activating Access to the Billing and Cost Management Console- To be able to grant your IAM users access to your account's Billing and Cost Management console, you must activate the functionality. To activate IAM user access to the Billing and Cost Management console:
    • Sign in to the AWS Management Console with your root account credentials (the email address and password that you used to create your AWS account). Don't sign in with your IAM user credentials.
    • On the navigation bar, choose your account name, and then choose My Account.
    • Next to IAM User Access to Billing Information, choose Edit.
    • Select the Activate IAM Access check box to activate access to the Billing and Cost Management pages. You can now use IAM policies to control which pages a user can access. After you have activated IAM user access, you can attach IAM policies to grant or deny access to specific billing features
