0808 Dialling Code
0808 is a UK-wide dialling code used for Freephone Numbers telephone numbers.
The correct way to format a number in the 0808 code is:
0808 nnn nnnn (for dialling within the UK)
+44 808 nnn nnnn (for dialling from outside the UK)
Typical call costs to 0808 numbers
A number of businesses and organisations use Freephone numbers, including some helplines and charities such as RNID or Age UK, as well as Government services like Jobseeker's Allowance.
Calls are normally free of charge from landlines but charges may apply from mobile phones. However, the operator must make an announcement before the call is connected telling the caller that they will be charged (the announcement does not state the exact charge). Calls from mobiles typically cost up to 31p per minute. 0500 numbers cost similar amounts as 0800 and 0808 numbers from a mobile.
