How UIFNs and Tourism Go Hand-In-Hand

UIFNs, or universal international freephone numbers, are very similar to that of an international toll free number (ITFS), but offer one additional benefit: with a UIFN, your customers have calling accessibility from multiple countries using the same number.  Although country code prefixes must be included when customers dial your number, a UIFN is the closest thing businesses have to a “global number”.  A UIFN simplifies international sales and marketing efforts by providing one single number that identifies your company to many different countries, and where your customers can reach you at no cost to themselves.

A UIFN is composed of a 3 digit country code, followed by an 8 digit numerical code, resulting in an 11 digit toll free number.  A UIFN can also come in the format of a vanity number.  Vanity numbers have proven repeatedly to be a valuable asset to any company’s marketing team.

UIFNs can be incredibly valuable for companies targeting customers in all different parts of the world. Some of these companies are in the tourism industry.  For example, hotels generally serve customers travelling from all over the globe. These hotels allow their customers to have a way to contact their business which proves vital in many situations.

UIFNs have also been established as a necessity for airlines and online booking sites.  When customers are attempting to make a reservation and reach a point where they have a question, being able to contact your company quickly can make the difference between completing t heir booking with your company or finding another company to do business with.

Time of Day Routing, Call ReDirect, Failover, and Redundancy are also included with UIFNs, helping you to ensure that your calls don’t go unanswered.
