What Is an 866 Number and Where Does the Area Code 866 Come From?

Simply put, the number with an 866 area code is a toll-free number, which was issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Toll-free numbers, such as 866, are not geographically or time zone-bound. Customers can dial toll-free within the United States, Canada, and other nations and regions covered by the North American Numbering Plan, making it easier to conduct business internationally.

Toll-free area codes are commonly used by businesses and customer care departments to allow customers to contact them and voice their complaints. Even for long distance calls, these numbers would charge the recipient of the call rather than the caller.

Why Should I Get a Number with an 866 Area Code for My Business?

Obtaining an area code of 866 for your company would be advantageous because toll-free lines do not charge callers, but rather the call recipient, making customer service more convenient and cost-effective for your clients. Since toll-free calls are also covered in Canada and the Caribbean, any queries from these countries would be welcomed and free on their end.

Vanity numbers, such as 1-866-FLOWERS, are probably familiar to you. These can also be done and customised as a way to be unique while also generating a name recall among potential clients.

Make it easy to remember. It’s all about the letters, so avoiding numbers at all costs is your best bet—1-866-HOUSING is a very easy-to-remember number.

Explain what your company does.This number is an extension of your brand. Use your number to tell people what you do, like 1-866-CONTACTS does.

Avoid using unusual spellings. One of the biggest benefits is that a vanity number is easy to remember. Don't make it hard to remember by getting creative and using a "Z" instead of an "S." For example, using "catz" when "cats" isn't available.

Avoid using hybrid numbers. It's a lot easier to remember 1-800-GoFedEx than 1-800-876-Ship, because people still have to remember the 876.
