What is 0818 phone number

What is a 0818 phone number?

A 0818 phone number is a national phone number. This means that the phone number is not associated with any specific city or region.

For example, the area code 01 belongs to Dublin. And the area code 02 belongs to Cork. A 0818 phone number is not linked to any city and can therefore be considered a national phone number.

What are the advantages of 0818 phone numbers for organisations?

Because these telephone numbers are national and not local, they address potential customers all over the country. The caller cannot deduce the origin or place of business from the area code.

It is a neutral telephone number in that sense. A 061 Limerick phone number may seem strange to customers in Dublin. And vice versa. For organisations that offer products or services all over the country, it can therefore be a wise choice to create a location-independent phone number.

The cost for callers is the same as calling a landline number. This applies to the whole of Ireland. So these phone numbers are also attractive for callers in that respect.

However, not as attractive as 1800 numbers that are completely free to call.

But, with a 1800 number the organisation that manages the number pays the full cost of the call. In some cases this is not desirable or too expensive for the organisation in question. In such cases, a 0818 telephone number is an ideal solution.

What are 0818 phone numbers used for?

0818 phone numbers are becoming increasingly popular. There are many companies that use a 0818 number. Sometimes as a main number, other times to support a campaign or as a temporary service number. But also self-employed people and webshops like to use them, for example to emphasise that they are active nationwide. Apart from image benefits - a 0818 number looks professional and prevents companies from being seen as local players - there are also practical benefits.
