0800 number request

We take care of your number request and management

0800 numbers are phone numbers that are free for the caller. In addition, an 0800 number gives the organization a professional feel.

Requesting 0800 numbers

We support your application to the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) by going over the application forms with you. All you have to do is to fill out the missing information and sign the form; once this is done, we’ll submit your application. It takes an average of six weeks for your application to be approved.

Like 088 numbers, 0800 numbers can’t be used in combination with Voice over IP (VoIP), but they can be used in combination with the Answering Service (link to page) and Customer Service (link to page) of ContactCare.

Three types of 0800 numbers

When purchasing an 0800 number, you’ll have a choice of three types of numbers:

1. Name-based number

A phone number such as 0800-COMPANY NAME is an original way to increase your availability. The number is easy to remember, making it simple for customers to contact you.

2. Short number

In the case of a short 0800 number the subscriber number consists of only four digits, for example 0800-1234. This number is easy to remember and readily recognized. Since short 0800 numbers are very popular, their use is subject to some conditions. A minimum limit of 2500 calls or 4000 call minutes per month applies to short 0800 numbers.

3. Standard number

Standard service numbers consist of seven digits following the ‘0800’ part, for example 0800-1234567. Unlike short service numbers, no minimum volume conditions apply to seven-digit 0800 numbers.

Many organizations choose short numbers because they look attractive and are easy to remember. However, the costs of short numbers are higher compared to seven-digit standard numbers.
