How UK Virtual Numbers with Call Forwarding / Call Diverts work

Choose your own virtual number from our UK virtual number ranges below and enter the number you want it to ring to. When a customer calls you on your registered virtual number the calls will be redirected to the phone number you specified it to be forwarded to. You do not need to buy any equipment, you simply divert to any existing landline, fax line, mobile phone or VoIP phone and you can change your virtual number diverts for free anytime using the web control panel, so you will not need a new UK virtual number if you move offices!

Choose a Virtual UK Phone Number that suits your goals

Your phone number can give your clients various different impressions about your company, are you a company that is based in their area, are you a national UK corporation, or are you a global enterprise? Consider the following when choosing your number.

Geographic Local Area Virtual Numbers:
If you want your customers to think that you are based in a specific geographic area (e.g. Central London 020 7), then a local area number would be the best choice. With a virtual number you can use a local area number if you want to target clients in their own geographic regions, cities or towns whether you are based in their area or not.

Non Geographic National Virtual Numbers:
Should you wish to give your clients the impression that you are a bigger national based company then you might want to get one of the 08 numbers. These numbers are great for companies targeting the entire country for business. There are 0800 numbers that are totally free for your clients to call as well as revenue generating 0844 numbers that you can even earn money on when people call you.

Virtual Gold UK Numbers
Gold numbers contain repetitive numbers like "555 666" or easy sequences like "3456789" that are easy to remember. Choose a gold number if you want your virtual number to "stick" in your clients heads without needing to write the number down.

Add advanced call handling & price plans to enhance your company image

Virtel-UK virtual UK numbers can be combined with your choice of advanced call-handling services , designed to help your company excel.

Choose a cost-effective pricing plan to help you keep phone call costs down , whether used occasionally or called constantly. For that customer hotline that never stops ringing, consider our Pro and Enterprise plans: these have higher monthly rental, but lower costs per call minute (especially for forwarding to mobiles or overseas), yielding overall savings when call volumes are high.
