Cultural and language differences

If you do business abroad, it is useful to take note of the local standards of conduct. This is to prevent misunderstandings and the chance that your customers will drop out in the future. France is known for its rich culture. Think of fashion, art and French cuisine.


Just like the Germans, the French speak little or no English. They really appreciate it when someone makes the effort to speak their beloved language. The young people can speak English better and better, but the older people speak almost no English

To eat

The French attach great importance to their dishes. They like to make time to be in the kitchen. In France they do not know the normal breads that are known in the Netherlands. In France you can only find ”baguettes”. In addition to their meal, the French like to have a glass of wine. They are true gourmets and place great value on their wine.


France is of course also known for its beloved capital Paris. This city attracts many tourists every year and there are many sights such as the Eiffel tower, Arc de Triomphe and Notre dame. These are just a few of France’s many attractions.

Kinds of Telephone Numbers in France

There are a number of different service numbers in France. Each number starts with the country code +33 and the country also uses local numbers.


The service numbers starting with the area code 0800 are for the account of the recipient. It therefore costs the caller nothing to call this number. This Freephone phone number is not tied to a particular city or region. Because it’s free for the caller, customers like to pick up the phone to call you. A Freephone number can be used perfectly for organizations where something is sold on the basis of the call. Think, for example, of requests for quotations, donations or reservations. The services allowed in France are business services, customer service and entertainment and payment. These services can use an 0800 number. The games of chance and dialer services, on the other hand, are prohibited in France and cannot use the freephone number.

Shared Cost

With an 082 number, the costs are shared. With this service number, the recipient and the caller jointly bear the costs. The services allowed are business services, customer service, entertainment and payment. Conversely, the Gambling and Dialer Services are prohibited in France and cannot use a Shared Cost number. The costs of a 082 number can vary. A call can last up to 30 minutes.

Premium Rate

If you want to make money on phone calls then the premium rate numbers are for you. With an 0900 number, all costs are entirely for the caller. There are two different types of premium rate numbers, namely cost per minute and cost per call. This difference is due to how the costs are calculated. The costs can vary from €0.10 to €0.80 per minute and €0.10 to €3.00 per call. The services allowed are business services, customer service and payment. The entertainment, dialer and games of chance services are prohibited in France and cannot use a premium rate number. Premium Rate numbers are usually used for calls that do not lead to sales. For example, you can think of support services or information numbers. The Premium Rate number gives you a professional look.


With a geographic number you tie your brand to a specific city or region. For example, it is possible to enter a telephone number in the area code area of, for example, Paris, Lille or Lyon. This ensures that the local population has more confidence and thus clearly shows which market you want to reach. This option is intended for companies that want to indicate that they will be physically present in the country. But it is also very useful for shops that have several visiting addresses.


Using a national number gives your company more options on a national scale. France’s national number starts with the area code 9. It doesn’t matter what your primary location is, because the national numbers ensure that you have a national identity. Your customers will easily find out where you are located by looking at your contact number. This ensures a better reputation and more reliability for your company. As an added benefit, multiple locations can be accessed through one number. This is ideal if you have multiple locations.

  • Queue Is the line busy and no employees ready to answer the phone? No problem. Each number has a queue where all entrants are placed in order of entry. You can determine the music that is played. A voice message can even be recorded that you can play while waiting.
  • Selection menu This is essential if you have a company with several departments. The selection menu enables the caller to connect to the correct department. Does the customer have a question about your products? Then the customer is transferred to the right department or person.
  • Digital answering machine If it is too busy for the employees and the customer is waiting for a long time. Then you can leave a message that will be played. This gives the customer the feeling that the customer is not forgotten and that action is taken despite the waiting time. This feature is also useful if a customer calls after hours.
  • Call statistics Do you want to have an overview of when most customers call? Or how long is the call? Then this function can certainly not be forgotten. With the call statistics you have an overview of all calls
