How to Get an International Number

ATurton / 15 August, 2017

There are many reasons why a business or organisation may want to get an international number.

Today, thanks to recent advances in telecoms technology, even small- and mid-sized businesses can get international numbers quickly and easily.

Whether you’re looking to expand into another country or consolidate your relationship with existing overseas customers, an international number can help you achieve your goals.


How Do I Get an International Number?


It’s easy to get an international number. After speaking with one of our experts, we will be able to advise you as to what type of number best suits your objectives. Once you’ve decided what sort of number you want, your international phone number will be set up in a matter of minutes.

Because our international numbers are virtual, you won’t have to pay international toll charges on your incoming or outgoing calls. This keeps costs down while freeing you to pursue your overseas objectives.


Which Number Type Is Right for Me?


There are three types of international number available:

  • In-Country Local Numbers – Ideal for businesses looking to expand into new countries without setting up overseas offices, as well as global call centres, this number type looks exactly like any other local number in the country you’re targeting.
  • International Toll Free Numbers (ITFN) – IFTNs look and act just like a regular toll free number in the country you’re targeting. As such, this number type improves credibility, increases the number of incoming calls and improves brand perception.
  • Universal Toll Free Numbers (UIFN) – A toll free number which can be called from any country participating in the UIFN scheme, UIFNs allow companies seeking more than one ITFN to consolidate their numbering with one global toll free number.
