Virtual Numbers

Grow your business with virtual numbers

Virtual numbers can be an innovative way for a smaller business or tradesperson working alone to give their operation a more professional-looking presence and potentially attract more customers.

When starting out, using your home phone number can be less than ideal. At the same time, if you’re working from another location, only being accessible from your mobile number isn’t the best way to promote yourself.

A more professional business front can be achieved almost instantly by investing in a virtual number. A virtual number is a number assigned to you that potential customers can call, which is then redirected to the number you can best be reached on.

We have a huge variety of virtual numbers available for you to choose from at Claritel which can help to give your business more prominence against the competition. Virtual numbers available can include specific area codes, or you could have a more ‘national’ virtual number which could be easier for your customers to remember.

Virtual numbers aren’t only for smaller businesses. The latter ‘national’ option is especially useful for SMEs who are ready to show they’re on the verge of becoming a larger brand, and want a number that can better relay those ambitions.

From July 2015, it became free for customers to call 0800 and 0808 numbers from any landline or mobile (though inbound call charges apply).

0845 local numbers are a popular choice as customers don’t pay any call charges, and inbound call charges aren’t applied to calls received.

These types of numbers are totally restricted to charities and public sector organisations. Callers are charged the same rates as standard UK 01 and 02 numbers, and inbound call charges apply to received calls.

The benefit of 01 and 02 UK numbers is there’s an enormous database to choose from, and can give a business a presence in any UK region without the need to install a landline. Inbound charges apply to received calls.

0843 and 0844 are the most popular numbers in the UK, with calls charged to the caller at a rate of 5p per minute. Inbound call charges do not apply to calls received.

0871 calls are charged to the caller at rates between 6p and 10p per minute (the latter most commonly used). High revenue share is payable on incoming call traffic. Inbound call charges don’t apply to received calls.

An 0333 number provides the caller with a standard national call charge, while 0333 is also charged at the same rates as standard UK 01 and 02 geographic numbers. Inbound call charges apply to calls received.

If you’re looking for an international virtual number, Claritel has you covered. We can provide code numbers for towns and cities around globe without the need for a landline, while callers pay a normal local or national call charge.
