Check out our massive range of super-memorable 0800 and 0808 freephone numbers from just £9.99 a month including free activation and same-day setup.
How 0800 numbers work
There’s no need to buy any new equipment when you get a Planet Numbers freephone number. We simply connect your new 0800 to an existing landline or mobile of your choice. (And you can change this whenever you want to.) Naturally, you can still use the destination phone to make and receive calls using its original number.

How you pay
You simply buy a monthly call-inclusive package, starting at £9.99 for 500 minutes of incoming 0800 calls from landlines or 250 minutes from mobiles. Calls you receive above your minutes allowance are simply charged by the second. See the table below for full details of our packages for mobiles and landlines.
Please note that some of our more desirable 0800 numbers are also subject to a small one-off initial connection charge when you first buy the number.

Your calls are billed by the second
Some suppliers will bill your 0800 calls by the minute. So you pay for a minute even if the call lasts ten seconds! But we prefer to bill you by the second (rounded up to the nearest penny to keep things sensible) to make sure you get maximum value from your freephone number.
Add automated call handling to give customers an even better response
There’s more to our 0800 numbers than free calls for your customers. Automated call handling is a great way to add a sophisticated range of virtual switchboard services to your 0800s, from just £5 a month. These include greetings messages, automated out-of-hours rerouting to mobiles, call queuing and voicemail-to-email. Find out more about our add-ons

Manage your 0800 numbers from your online dashboard
Want to change the number your 0800 is redirected to? Easy, just log into your Planet Numbers online dashboard and make the switch in seconds. You can change the receiving number as often as you need to, completely free. Your dashboard is the place to manage any automated call handling services you’ve chosen, too.
Choose from our huge range of easy-to-remember numbers
We offer four different ranges of 0800 numbers. The more striking and memorable they are, the higher the connection charge. This is a one-off payment, however, and your ongoing costs simply depend on the minutes package you choose.
We’ll find you the perfect 0800
If you’re searching for a particular 0800 number that isn’t listed, please call us on 0800 088 6035 and let us know your requirements (or email us email@example.com) and we’ll try and find it.
Prefer an 0808?
An 0808 number is essentially identical to an 0800. Both are entirely free for your customer to call from landlines and mobiles. 0808s don’t have the instant recognition as a ‘freefone’ number yet, though, so we’d always advise telling your customers that your 0808 is free to call.
Need some help?
There are a lot of things to think about when you’re setting up your company’s first 0800 numbers. Give us a call on 0800 088 6035 and we’ll talk you through the options and costs.
