About 018®

At 018®, the service we offer Kiwis is simple. We're the people you call when you're looking for a phone number. It can be for a home or business, an 0800 or 0900 number, a mobile number and we can even help with addresses. In most cases, you can connect to the number by pressing 1*.

Full terms and conditions for 018® can be found here, and (among other things) cover our use of your information and our call recording policy.

Just give us a bell with what you're looking for — the location can be helpful too — and we'll get straight to it. If you call us from your mobile a lot, check out our new 018VIP® service to see if it tickles your fancy.

If you're overseas and looking for a number in New Zealand, your best bet is to use White Pages or Yellow Directory or try using the international directory service of the country you're in.

Martin - Mobile 018VIP® Customer

The trial was in our opinion a resounding success! The team were so helpful & backed up their diligence with a text for new contact creation or immediate use of the number supplied. It was a real pleasure to be part of something many Kiwis, I'm sure, will thoroughly enjoy.
