Do I need a French phone number for reservations?

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow travelers,

I will be headed to Paris for a week and Provence for a week in June with family and friends (11 people in all--crazy, right?).

I've been doing a lot of research on Fodor's forums and TripAdvisor about whether or not to get a SIM card at a French telecom company for my unlocked HTC One phone. I came across a several years old thread on TA that indicated that in order to make reservations at restaurants I would need to provide a French phone number, not a US based phone number--even if the US number is working. In your experience, is this true?

On the same note, I downloaded the Taxis G7 app and noticed it won't allow me to register my account using my US phone number...so it would seem that particular app is out for our trip unless I do get a French SIM card.

Has anyone encounted issues with reservations using a cell number from another country?

Thank you in advance for your advice.

Jen
