Germany Toll Free Numbers
Encourage your German customers to call you for free.
If you want to make your business look more established in Germany, a toll free number in Germany could be exactly what you need.
A Germany toll free number is a dedicated phone number that makes it possible for callers to reach your business. Germany toll free numbers always start with 0800 and are followed by a further 7 digits (e.g. 0800 XXX XXXX).
Such numbers are free to call from both landlines and mobiles within Germany as all costs are incurred by the receiver of the call.
However, the cost to receive a call from a mobile phone onto a toll free number in Germany is higher than that of calls from landlines. This is what’s called a mobile organisation surcharge and is well-known throughout Germany. It enables callers to ring your company for free whilst you pay for the privilege.
German 0800 numbers are arguably the most popular within our global portfolio – and, with good reason.
Unlike virtual local numbers in Berlin – where you would have to provide a proof of residence – the rules are more relaxed for toll free numbers in Germany and there is less regulatory paperwork to complete.

The only downside of Germany toll free numbers is that you must be a business to order one.

I see that you must have proof of residency for a local phone number in Germany. Do I need this for a toll free number?
You do NOT need to provide a proof of residency to get a toll free number in Germany but you will have to provide us with your certificate of incorporation to prove your business status to the local regulator in Germany. This is common practice now within Germany and avoids fraudulent use of toll free numbers in this country.
How long does it take to set up a toll free number in Germany?
We are no longer allowed to keep German toll free numbers in stock due to the certificate of incorporation that needs to be logged against each number. It can take up to 10 days to get a toll free number in Germany up and running. Most of this time is allocating the certificate against the number with the local regulator.
If I don't have a certificate of incorporation can I still buy a toll free number in Germany?
The simple answer to this is yes – but it comes with a severe warning.
A certificate of incorporation is a legal document that shows you’ve formed and registered your limited company. In one way, it’s like your business’s birth certificate – showing the name of your company, it’s registered number and the date it was incorporated. As well as this, the certificate provides details about where your registered office is located.
If you set up a toll free number in Germany and don’t provide the certificate of incorporation, you run the risk of your number being cut off without notice.
Here at G-Tele, our Germany toll free numbers are only available to businesses and any individual orders will be rejected. We also don’t supply toll free numbers without the full documents as this could potentially put your business at risk.
