Virtual Landline: Your Travel Companion

This article explains the many reasons why Virtual Landline is beneficial to your life and business, especially if you are a frequent traveller who wants to avoid having to pay such hefty tariff charges when calling back home.

 Why Choose A Virtual Number?

With a virtual phone number users don’t require access to a cell tower or a specific device in order to make or receive calls. This means you don’t have to be in a certain location as these virtual numbers make and receive calls over the internet, allowing anyone with the virtual phone numbers to communicate using any device or devices as long as it has a connection.

The device that the virtual number is routed to can also be altered at any time, this provides a huge advantage and freedom to those who use virtual Landline for professional or personal use.


If you are a frequent traveller or have an upcoming trip, you should use a virtual phone number to keep costs low. Whatever type of travelling you are doing: business or holiday, you will need a way to communicate with friends/family/colleagues while away.

A UK virtual phone number is a way of keeping in touch and protecting your privacy at little expense to yourself.

With one of these UK numbers, you never have to reveal your personal mobile phone number to anyone as the virtual number will redirect to your chosen device. Helpful to keep the divide between your professional and personal life.

This redirection is especially handy for business owners or professional use. It minimises the risk of missing important business calls and this is key as stats show 85% of people will not call back if their call is unanswered. Therefore, having access to your professional landline at all times can prevent you from losing business and developing a bad reputation.


As for charges, incoming calls over Wi-Fi are FREE, allowing you to receive calls anywhere in the world. We also provide cheap international phone charges for outbound calls. The cost to call is around 1/2p per minute – for more information and specific rates head to ‘Find your rate’ page. If you receive or make a call on our new GSM network feature, then your provider may charge you so make sure to check beforehand.

Virtual Landline also promises NO contracts, meaning there is a lot of flexibility to your use of the service. For example: If you know you will be travelling between the months of July to October then you can set up a telephone number specifically over this period. Giving you the control over your use.

 As you can see, Virtual Landline has many benefits and offers all you need when you are spending long periods away from home, friends and family. If you want to avoid the harsh charges given by most mobile providers, then look no further!
