INTERNATIONAL DIRECT DIALLING
Your handy aid to International Dialling International Direct Dialling (IDD) is the quick, easy way to telephone abroad. It is currently available to over 160 countries, and more countries are being added each year.
What you dial
Wherever you are calling you will have to dial the complete international number. In most cases this is made up of four distinct elements:
1. International Code 3. Area Code
2. Country Code 4. Customer's number
* First dial the international code. From the UK this is always 010.
* Then dial the code for the country you require.
* Next dial the Area Code, remembering to omit any initial 0 (or 9 in the case of Finland and Spain).
* Finally dial the customer's number.
Country Codes and a brief selection of Area Codes are shown in this leaflet. Many more Area Codes are published in the International Telephone Guide (ITG). The ITG also gives hints on dialling, charging information and help with international time differences. It is available free of charge by dialling 100 and asking for Free tone 2013 (during normal working hours.)
No Area Code is required on IDD calls to some countries. Where this is the case simply dial the Customer's Number immediately after the Country Code.
After dialling you may have to wait up to one minute before hearing a tone (ringing, engaged, etc.)
Remember that tones in other countries are often different. For a fee demonstration dial 100 and ask for Freetone 2070 (for Europe) or Freetone 2071(for North America).
Should you need a code not shown or a precise time difference, or have any difficulty with International Telephone Service, contact the international operator who will be pleased to help; the number to dial is in your Telephone Dialling Code booklet.
