The 0302 area code is used by businesses and organisations, including government bodies and the charity sector. This area code is a non-geographical landline which is very versatile. As it isn’t linked to one particular area, it is ideal for companies with multiple locations that still want the benefits of a landline number. If you receive a call from a 0302 number, it isn’t immediately clear where the caller is based.
The benefit of a 0302 number is that calls are charged at the same local rate as any other geographical landline. To dial a 0302 number, you dial 0302 followed by a further seven digits. If you are calling from overseas, you will need to add +44 and remove the first zero.
How much does it cost to call an 0302 number?
Calls to 0302 numbers cost the same as any geographical landline number. Your phone network will charge a fee for connecting the call and then a fee for the duration of the call. The vast majority of phone providers include free calls to geographical landline numbers, so you won’t need to pay anything. Otherwise, your call will be charged at your standard network rate.
If you are calling from a mobile phone, the call will be charged as a standard geographical landline call. Many mobile phone providers include free minutes with your monthly phone package. If you do not get free minutes, you will be charged your normal network fee for the duration of the call.
Is 0302 a freephone number?
Calls to 0302 numbers are not premium, and nor are they freephone. This type of phone number is used by government bodies and charitable organisations. They are not free to call, but many phone providers do not charge for calls to geographical landlines. If you’re calling from a mobile phone, you will not be charged extra, and your standard network rate will apply.
All numbers that start with 03 are the same, no matter which digits proceed it. There are a many 03 numbers in operation, including 0300, 0331 and 0345. All of these phone numbers are the same in regards to the cost to call them.
