"GETTING TELEPHONE NUMBERS" London Tourist Trap Tip by DAO

Need a telephone number in Britain? That’s going to cost you! A few years ago the Directory Enquiries number ‘192’ was privatised and now there are over 100 options. Some will cost you more than £1 for a phone number! I recommend not using 118 118. They do the most marketing, but they certainly are not cheap. They charge you 49p for answering the phone and 9 pence a minute to actually talk to you.

Unique Suggestions: Use 0800 100 100. It's FREE. The catch is you have to listen to advertising. So what.

If you really want to pay, try 118 848. They charge a flat 27 pence and will give you 3 numbers.

Look here to compare tariffs:
