Talking numbers

We’ve swapped our old 1890 numbers for shiny new 0818 ones. Here’s the whys and wherefores.

0818The chances are that if you listen to any commercial radio here in Ireland you will hear mention of an organisation called ComReg.

You’ll then, just as likely, completely forget about them.

No offence, ComReg, it’s just the way it is.

ComReg is an abbreviation for the Commission for Communications Regulation.

This is the statutory body responsible for the regulation of the electronic communications sector.

This includes telecommunications, radio communications, broadcasting transmissions in addition to premium rate services as well as Ireland’s postal sector.

And why are we talking about ComReg?

Because it’s good to talk – and we want to make sure you dial the right number to get in touch with the various teams here at Principal Insurance Ireland.

We’re all 0818 now

Now in line with upcoming changes from ComReg regarding Non-Geographic Numbers all our previous 1890 numbers here at Principal Insurance have been replaced with their 0818 counterparts.

The benefits of these 0818s is that they are standard rate calls. That is they cost the same to ring as any landline in the country.

From 31st December 2021 the 1890 numbers will be withdrawn from service and will no longer work. In any way.

0818This means that we can’t even put in a redirect for these lines. So if you’ve got us in your contacts, please update to the new 0818 numbers

We’ve already changed all our numbers.  These are listed below and, as usual, we very much look forward to hearing from you. After all, it’s always good to talk!
