Cost of calls to 00800 (international freephone numbers)

First Timer
Message 3 of 3

A few years ago a question was asked about this. Eventually the reply was yes, they are free..... A couple of years later, the question was asked again & the answer was that if you don't have the international boost, then the calls are very expensive....


So, I have been trying to find out what the actual answer is. I rang TalkTalk & the chap I spoke to didn't have a clue what I was talking about. He went away & came back & told me that it's not on my call plan & so is chargeable. I asked how much it would cost per minute etc. to call & he
told me the number's not listed.... I pointed out that surely the number would either be free OR be listed with a charge. No answer. He did tell me that the only way to know if it was chargeable or not would be to call the number! NOT VERY HELPFUL!!


I have emailed TT a few times about this. I had a response that was about 0845/0870 numbers. No mention of the 00800 number. I have tried Googling the question. Most answers say should be free, but check with your provider. I rang Ofcom. They didn't know either!


I really hadn't anticipated this question being SO DIFFICULT to get an answer to


Any ideas??

Hi DebSki 


The International freephone number called from the TalkTalk Network by starting the number 00800 is free of charge.  Charges help page:  International Call Costs
