0300 Numbers

What are 0300 numbers?

0300 numbers (UK phone numbers beginning with the prefix 0300) are non-geographic numbers, charged at local rate, reserved for government and charity helplines.

  • NON-GEOGRAPHIC: 0300 numbers are non-geographic, national numbers – not related to any particular part of the UK, much the same as 0800 & 0808 (freephone) numbers and 0843 & 0844 low-cost business-rate numbers.
  • LOCAL RATE: 0300 numbers are charged at local rate, just like 01 and 02 numbers, and are eligible for the same free & discounted minutes offers as their geographic 01 and 02 counterparts.

 

Examples of 0300 numbers

Examples of heavily-used 0300 telephone numbers include:

  • 0300 790 6801 – the DVLA’s driver licensing enquiries helpline.
  • 0300 200 3300 – HMRC’s income tax enquiries helpline.
  • 0300 123 1044 – the NHS Smokefree helpline.
