    'Contact me whenever you want to' vs '... you want'

    Hello Teachers,

    'Contact me whenever you want to'

    In this sentence, I thought that 'to' at the end could not be omitted.

    But I wonder now
    'Contact me whenever you want' is correct too?

    Please let me know the actual usage in practice.
    Thank you

    Note my corrections above.

    In BrE, "Contact me whenever you want" is perfectly acceptable.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's fine in AmE too.
