Useful Phone Numbers - please contribute!


(Catharine Higginson) #1

This blog post will act as a phone numbers resource, for those hard to find English speaking numbers in France, AND for direct numbers in the UK. Most English companies now use 0800 or 0500 numbers which obviously you can’t dial from here and don’t advertise or publicise the alternative. If you find a useful number, please leave it as a comment and I will try to keep the post updated. Thanks! And thanks to Teresa for the suggestion!

David - you’re right - and see @kerry giroud post too below. I’m not sure why they feel so secretive about the actual phone number… anyways… we too are on the orange “fire away, call who you like, it’s free!” package, thought i have my doubts. when we moved from ireland to england it nearly bankrupted the calls home… and i slightly worry about the 30 min calls to the ma in dubin. still…
