IP CommunicationsToll Free Phone Solutions for the Travel Industry.

According some recent research results personal and direct contact is still very appreciated among customers when booking a holiday, a hotel room, a flight or when hiring a car. On most of the booking sites however the contact number is hard to find and often it has a 900 prefix, and with this calling the service provider can be quite pricey.

Some businesses in the Travel/Leisure arena however consider their 0-800 or 00-800 Toll Free phone numbers as a supplement to their free online contact possibilities, such as the email and the corporate website. In case a website provides good information and can handle the incoming emails well, people will only want to call a company with some more difficult and specific questions or problems.

A 0-800 (International Toll Free Number, hereinafter ITFN) or 00-800 number (Universal International Freephone Number, hereinafter UIFN) refers to a service-minded and customer-oriented business, as it shows that the organisation is ready to invest into this extra service for their customers. In an increasingly competitive industry such as Travel/Leisure, you can make a difference and set yourself apart from the competition with freephone numbers, that are a trigger for customer retention and stimulate customer loyalty programmes, and in general contribute to your strategic objectives (cost reduction, up/cross sell, brand exposure).
