Telephoning Internationally

We have used the international convention for telephone numbers.
    If you are dialling from another country:
  1. Dial your international access code - usually 011 in the US and 00 in Europe
  2. Dial the country code - the digits immediately after the + sign. See below for a list of codes.
  3. Dial the number - omitting the number, usually a zero, in brackets (if there is one).

You can tell whether you are dialling a number in your own country if the digits immediately after the plus sign correspond to your own country code. Click on the country code on any page to see which country the code is for and for the time offset from GMT. For example the country code for the US is '1', thus if you are dialling from the US the '1' immediately after the plus sign can be ignored and the area code dialled first.

Please remember that the owners of the property may be in a different time zone to you! So time you calls accordingly.
