For most listings (restaurants, bars, hotels, sites, activities), 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>
  • 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 Contact section of the guide.
  • Information on toll-free, and premium prefixes should also go in the Contact section.

For example:

A Canadian number should be listed like:

+1 613 239-5000

Where "1" is the country code, "613" is the area code and "239-5000" can be dialled locally.


A United Kingdom number should be listed like:

+44 871 222-3118

Where "44" is the country code, "871" is the area code and "222-3118" is the local number. The fact that you need to dial "0" in front of the area code to dial from within the United Kingdom should be in the Contact section of the guide.
