Contact GLS by Phone
The GLS customer service phone number is 0870 280 6735. An alternative contact number is 0870 218 3666. The prefix 0870 is for telephone numbers that are charged at higher rates due to the inclusion of a surcharge or ‘service charge’ to pay for the service being provided. Special two-part charging arrangements apply when calling 0870 numbers.
The first part of the call cost is your own phone company’s standard per-minute ‘access charge’. The second part is a variable ‘service charge’ which benefits the organization you are calling. They are responsible for advising you of the rate that applies before you call. The total per minute cost of a call to a 0870 number will typically be anywhere from 8p to 68p, plus a per-call charge of up to 13p.
