How does it work?
Standard Freephone Service
Your 0800 freephone number allows your prospective customer to call you FREE of charge – you pay for the cost of the call – a small investment to gain a new customer or keep existing customers happy. When your customer places a call to your 0800 freephone number, our network sends the call straight to your chosen telephone number (known as the “Target Number”). You simply answer the call as you would normally.
There is no need to change the way you work – just use your 0800 number in place of your normal number to promote your business and see the number of replies increase!
Our standard 0800 numbers are just £5 per month before VAT, which include several minutes of calls dependent upon routing.
