What are Toll-Free Phone Numbers?

A toll-free number is a phone number with a specific starting three-digit code, that allows callers to get in contact with you free of charge. This is especially helpful for callers who are out of the area, as it avoids long-distance fees for calls.

The most common use of toll-free numbers is for customer service and businesses. Not only does it provide a more accessible way for your customers to get in touch with you, but it also is able to provide a professional business image.

There are a few different toll-free prefixes that can be used at the start of your toll-free number. The most recognizable is 800, but the following codes operate in the same way as an 800 number: 888, 877, 866, 855, 844, and 833.

Why is a toll-free number important to your business?

  • Increase accessibility by eliminating fees for your callers
  • Improve the professional image and business credibility
  • Enhance business portability by eliminating location-specific area codes
  • Unify communication among a distributed team

Toll-free numbers vs. vanity numbers vs. local telephone numbers

When searching for the best business phone number, you may have heard terms such as toll-free, vanity, and local phone numbers. As we’ve described, a toll-free number allows your callers to get in touch with your team without incurring additional charges. Vanity numbers allow you to include your business name or a general description in an easy-to-remember way. For example, 1-800-DOGCARE would be a great vanity number if you run a doggie daycare business.

While these numbers are easy to remember, they don’t offer any additional functionalities than a standard toll-free number would. A local number typically includes the area code where your business is located. These phone numbers will leave your callers with additional fees if they are making a long-distance phone call. It is important that a business is able to determine the best phone number option for their business, but with plenty of options to choose from there is a great fit for everyone.
