Are 0800 numbers free to call?

Yes, UK telephone numbers starting with 0800 are always free to call regardless of whether you are on a landline or mobile handset. Nor will your inclusive minutes be used up when phoning these lines, hence they are referred to as freephone numbers.

Freephone numbers beginning with either an 0800 or 0808 prefix are always free to call from UK landline and mobile telephones. Furthermore unlike calling local 01 and 02 numbers you will not lose any inclusive minutes from your balance when calling 0800 numbers, making them fully free of charge. However please be aware that calls to these numbers from outside the UK are unlikely to be free, with the exact rate dependent on which country you phone from. Likewise calls to 0800 numbers made from public payphones may not be accepted.
