Managing your call routing whilst on holiday

The summer holiday season is almost upon us, children are looking forward to the long holiday away from school, whilst parents are probably more looking forward to September…

If you are a small business, start-up or sole trader you may need to give some thought as to how you want your calls handled when you go on holiday.

Telephone numbers from Tamar Telecommunications have a very useful free feature called ‘Holiday Settings’.

So if you want your call routing to route calls differently whilst you are away, perhaps to a colleague, call answering service, voicemail or similar – just let us know the details and the dates that you will be away.

Once setup, your holiday call routing settings will automatically start and then revert back to the normal settings, when your holiday dates have finished.

The holiday settings can also have call routing setup in advance for bank holidays and Christmas holiday shutdowns.

Further details are available on our holiday settings page.

Our customer services team are able to setup holiday settings for you, just call 0800 772 0000 and select option 3.

The holiday settings can also be managed via the online control panel at

If you don’t currently have a telephone number from Tamar Telecommunications, you can find out more about the various types of telephone numbers, by selecting one of the following: 01/02 Geographic Numbers, 03 UK Wide Numbers and 0800 Freephone Numbers.
