How to send a fax to France?

I have a stupid question.

I am trying to fax Hotel Bonaparte from Canada and my fax won't go through - I am obviously missing something.

I am faxing to 33 1 46 33 57 67 - exactly this number. Am I supposed to preface this with a 1 or a 0 or something? Or am I just having a problem transmitting.


I am not very savvy with international issues.

Thanks!

It's just like the phone - you need to use the international access code before the country code. Not sure what it is for you - but it's listed in the front of your phone book.

You need to dial 011, then the rest of the numbers.

I thought maybe I had to put the 011 - THANKS!!!

How do I write my return fax number if I live in Canada/US? Do they need any other information other than my area code and number - i.e. country code, etc?

Thanks!

When dialing back to the States from France, you dial 001, but I dont know if it's the same for Canada. I'd check with an international operator. Chances are the hotel will have that information, though. I don't usually put the US international code on faxes to France, and the hotel always seems to know how to fax back to me.

If it is the Hotel Bonapart in Toulon, I found this fax number:

33.(0)1.55.33.16.56

Or try adding that zero after the 33 for the number you have.

Here is where I found that number:

A conventional way to indicate your return fax number would be: ++ (1)-xyz-abc-defg

++ means "whatever it is you need to do to dial an international call"

(1) reminds them, though they surely would already know - - that 1 is the country code for the US and Canada

xyz is your area code;

abc-defg is your phone number

Best wishes,

Rex

Either find out the international code for Canada and add it to the front, or simply write your normal fax number (I am guessing the hotel will know what additional code they need to use).

BTW the 011 is not magic to fax only, it is the same if you need to make a telephone call to anywhere in Europe.

The international code for Canada (for dialing TO Canada FROM anywhere else) is the number 1 (same as for the USA).

Rex, do you know why international phone numbers are sometimes preceeded by a "++", and sometimes just by one "+"? I've seen it done both ways.

I usually just give my number in the form:

+1 aaa eee nnnn

... where aaa is the area code, eee the exchange (offfice code), and nnnn the number. But people know that US numbers are always exactly 10 digits. That's not the case in Europe, where the length of numbers can vary.

A number in Toulon would normally be given in France as:

04.94.xx.xx.xx

You would direct dial it from the US as follows, dropping the leading zero, which is only used in France:

011 33 4 94 xx xx xx

That is:
011 The US International prefix
33 The country code for France
4 French prefix for SE France and Corsica
94 The city code for Toulon

Seems like someone once told me that one convention is for mobile phones, and the other is for land line, but I am not at all sure - - and I think it may not be a "true convention", either way.
