The phone numbers in Greece

The first digit represents the type of service. 1 is used for short codes, 2 for geographical numbers (3 and 4 are reserved for that purpose too), 5 is used for inter-network routing purposes (non-dialable codes) and VPNs, 6 for mobile services, 7 is reserved for universal access numbers (not active), 8 for reduced-fee services (like 800 toll-free, 801 local call, 89 dial-up and data services), 9 is used for premium rate services (901 for general purpose and 909 for adult-only services)

All dialable numbers are ten digits, except for short codes (3–5 digits in the 1 range), 807-XXXX (seven digits) used for calling card access codes, and numbers in the 5 range, used for routing purposes and not dialable by end-subscribers.

Helpful tips for calling abroad

Calls to cell phones registered in another country are charged much higher rates than calls to fixed lines. Our advice: make sure you know what type of number you are calling. In Greece all mobile phone numbers look like: 69XXXXXXXX.

If the international number you wish to call starts with a 0 (zero) you must drop this digit when dialing the number. The 0 (zero) is a so called “trunk code” used for domestic calls within many countries.

The plus sign (+) used before an international telephone number can either be dialed or replaced with your country’s exit code. For example, if you are in the US and you see this Greek fixed line Athens area number +30 210 32 00 000 you can dial it as is or replace the plus sign with 011.

Be aware of extra charges incurred when using a service such as a calling card to place international calls. Often they advertise low rates, but will charge additional connection or maintenance fees.

To call to Greece from abroad type the exit code of your country (or just the “+” sign) plus the country code 30 and then the phone number.
