Wikivoyage:Phone numbers

From Wikivoyage

For most listings, it's helpful to have a phone number for making contact.

We format phone numbers as they would be dialled internationally but in a way that separates the country code, area code, and part that can be dialled locally.

+<country code> <area code> <local number>

For example:

A Canadian number should be listed like:

+1 709 959-5000

Where "1" is the country code, "709" is the area code and "959-5000" can be (optionally) dialled locally using abbreviated dialling (as designated by the two groups of digits con-joined with a hyphen).

  • All numbers should begin with + and a country code, unless they're undialable from outside the country (for instance, 1-1-2 or 9-1-1 distress calls)
  • When an area code is required for local dialling, or an area code requires a prefix for local dialling (say a '0'), note that in the Connect section of the guide.
  • Information on freephone/toll-free, caller-paid mobile and premium rate prefixes should also go in the Connect section. Consider whether a warning is necessary in the actual listing if premium rate numbers are used.
  • The number group(s) that can be (optionally) dialled locally are con-joined with hyphens.
  • Brackets are not used in numbers. If the digits are needed when calling from abroad, include them with no brackets (so +1-800-555-0199 and not 1 (800) 555-0199). If the digits are not needed on international calls, omit them (so +44 20 7777-7777 and not +44 (0) 20 7777-7777).
  • Our formatting method may differ from that seen most in the country concerned. We prefer to use hyphens to only indicate the (con-joined) abbreviated part of the whole telephone number that can be utilised for local dialling. We do not use italics or parentheses within the phone number.
  • Where a number can mostly not be dialled from outside the country concerned (e.g.: a New Zealand Freephone number), it should be listed in the prevalent local style (e.g.: 0800 737 000 for the Air New Zealand Freephone number only valid within NZ)
  • In most countries, all the digits of mobile phone numbers should be dialled and there will be no (con-joined) abbreviated part of the whole mobile phone number that can be used for local dialling. Mobile phones are only given standard, landline-style geographic numbers in areas where mobile users pay airtime to receive calls (such as Canada/USA and China). This resource is useful for deciding which are mobile numbers.
  • The {{listing}} template provides three fields (phone, tollfree, fax) for telephone numbers. These fields may contain no more than one number each and must be written in numeric form (eg: +1-212-736-5000 and not "PEnnsylvania 6-5000", or +1 areacode 273-3474 and not 273-FISH). Any additional numbers (such as separate local 'phone numbers for a pub and a B&B in the same inn, vanity numbers or TTY/TDD numbers for deaf users) should appear at the start of the "content" part of the listing.
