What are 0800 and free phone numbers?
An 0800 number or a free phone number is a simple way to give your business a more established national identity. 0800 numbers are the most widely recognised free phone numbers in the UK. Other codes include local call rate numbers such as 0845 and 0345.
0800 numbers are a popular direct response number in the UK for a number of different reasons. They help increase customer enquiries because customers call free from landline and mobile phones, they can be set up as a marketing campaign number for either digital, print or TV or they can be used for your call centre. If you move office or open a new location, you will not have to change your number or use multiple numbers.
We take free phone dialling one step further. We have introduced UK businesses to dialling a ‘name’ rather than a ‘number’, as a memorable solution for their direct response activity. For example 0800 Repair that's 0800 737247. Names are easier to remember than numbers.
Where can I divert my 0800 number?
We can route 0800 numbers to UK landlines and UK mobiles.
