What are 0330 numbers?

According to the definition on Wikipedia, 0330 numbers are non-geographic and call charges are the same as UK local rate numbers.

They were created by the regulator Ofcom as an alternative to premium 08 numbers. Since their introduction in 2007, 03 numbers are the only non-geographic numbers whose charges are linked to local-rate calls.

Non-geographic simply means 03 numbers are not linked with a region or city. They are most commonly used by businesses who prefer using one national number rather than several local ones.

No, they are not free. However, calls to 0330 numbers are charged at the same rate as UK local calls (to landlines with 01 or 02 prefixes). Ofcom regulations ensure that 03 numbers are included in tariffs offering inclusive minutes or free calls to local numbers. Looking at the most popular landline service providers, 0330 number costs would be between 9.5p and 13.5p per minute at peak time.

If you call an 0330 number from a UK mobile and outside of your tariff limits, the cost can vary from 3p to 35p per minute, depending on your provider. If you are unsure if 0330 numbers are included in your mobile phone package, we recommend you contact your service provider.

Here at Best Reception, we pride ourselves on offering cost-effective solutions for our business customers. For example, you can get an 0330 number for a small one-off cost (from just £50). Going forward, it will can cost from just £10 per month to get a non-geographic number diverted to a UK landline or mobile number of your choice. Did you know: there are no monthly costs when you choose a Best Reception call handling service?

Market your business across the UK with a non-geographic number from Best Reception. Unlike some virtual phone numbers which attract premium call charges, our 0330 numbers cost the same as a standard call to a local landline. In order to find the best value, we recommend using a non-geographic number in conjunction with one of our call handling packages.

Many businesses use 0330 numbers as part of their commitment to providing excellent customer service. For example, major retailers, insurance firms and car breakdown companies offer an 0330 customer helpline. This means customers face the same charges as they would if they were calling a nearby friend or relative.

Whatever your industry or the size of your company, there are many benefits for adopting a non-geographic 0330 number for business. If you feel constrained by your existing local area phone number, you could advertise nationwide using a single non-geographic number.

Because our virtual numbers are not tied to a property or existing landline, you can divert your calls to an office or mobile number of your choosing. Virtual numbers also offer continuity, as you can keep them even when your move location.

There are plenty of benefits for your customers too. For example, local call rates mean they are cheaper than other national numbers.
