Why are phone numbers masked?

    Masked phone numbers allow captains and customers to prepare for fishing trips while keeping their private contact details protected. 

    Our system may assign you a masked phone number once your booking has been confirmed. This number will remain active until the booking has taken place. 

    The masked phone number acts just like a direct number and will put you directly through to the person you're fishing with, as long as you're calling from the phone number that you entered when you made your booking. If you’re calling from a different number to the one you signed up with, you’ll be prompted to enter your booking ID in order to continue. 

    To contact the other party before a trip has been confirmed, you can use FishingBooker’s safe and secure Instant Messaging platform. We recommend always communicating through FishingBooker in order to keep your communications and private details protected.
