Free International Phonebook Directory Launched

21st May, 2009

Today, 192.com, the UK’s leading people, business and place finder, has launched a free online international directories product with http://world.192.com. This new directory of international phonebooks provides access to almost 400 online directories in 204 countries worldwide.

The site also integrates Google’s translation tool so if any of the websites aren’t in your native tongue, it will translate them into any one of the 40 most common languages.

Using online directories is also a great way to save money in tough economic times. All searches are completely free which could mean a saving of several pounds per enquiry compared to international 118 services.

This new tool allows travellers to look up important contact details before they travel whether its phone numbers for hotels and restaurants or contact details for a doctor or dentist in case of an emergency.

If you need to get hold of someone in a hurry, it’s also a great source of information for residential numbers.

Dominic Blackburn, Product Director, 192.com said of the launch, "192.com customers often ask us, do we offer directory enquiry services outside the UK? The new http://world.192.com offers a single place where you can find international phonebooks online. With this site we continue the same ethos we had when we first launched 192.com over a decade ago. People want to have the option to search directory enquiries for free and this new tool allows them to do just that for any country in the world".

Search for any business or person in any city worldwide at: http://world.192.com
