Telephone Calls

Emergency phone numbers in Turkey that you might need prior or during your visit, for fire, police, ambulance, international operator, directory assistance, gendarme and rescue at sea.

Telephone, Mobile, Dialing

To dial abroad from Turkey dial the international code 00 followed by the country code, 44 for the UK, 353 for Ireland, and then the number including the local area code, but removing the first 0. For example, a London number with an area code of 0207 would be dialled from Turkey as 00 44 207 followed by the number.

To dial Turkey from the other countries dial the international code 00 followed by the country code, 90 and then the number including the local area code, but removing the first 0. For example, a Mugla number with an area code of 0252 would be dialled from your country as 00 90 252 followed by the number.

There are public phone booths which accept cards or tokens which can be bought from post offices or local shops. You can call abroad from most hotels, but do bear in mind that this often works out to be quite expensive. It is wise to check rates before making a call. Providing your phone is enabled to work abroad, most mobiles will work in Turkey. Network coverage is extremely good and it is very rare to be in an area where your mobile does not work.
