I'm buying an ID wristband for each of my DS's before we go on holiday next week, but I need to know how to write our mobile number on it so that people in Florida can ring the number if they get lost.
Please help ASAP because they are being engraved and I need to send the order off because of the postal strikes.....
It should be +44 (00 may work in some countries, but not everywhere).
In USA it is definitely 011 as the "international" prefix, then 44 for UK and everything after the leading 0, so JJ's
011 44 798 123 4567 will work in USA
+44 798 123 4567 is best for anywhere outside USA/Canada as everyone else can cope with the "+" meaning "your international prefix" (remember that about 70% of Americans have never been outside USA, and have no passport.
"a long trip" might be to one of the US coasts, as that could be a couple of thousand miles.
Surely would be much cheaper/more sensible to get some of the ones like hospital bracelets that you write on in biro? Especailly as if you have them done for ?USA, (011) they will be useless in other parts of the world.
