Most organisations that offer 0800 numbers also publish a conventional landline number for international callers, which they're happy for you to use as they're not paying for the call. If you can't find one, try looking on www.saynoto0870.com/ for alternative numbers.

Brilliant advice Richard. I love that website which has saved me a load of money especially dodging around those expensive 0870 numbers.

Another idea might be to download Skype. 0800 calls are easy via Skype and free.

Hi jetlagged I just want to say thanks for the Skype tip my partner tried it yesterday with an 0800 number & it worked, so if anyone asks us how to do 0800 numbers we know what to tell them

You're welcome Haydn and I'm glad that you found it useful. Thanks for coming back to update the thread. That will be useful for any others researching this in future.

For information, using Skype is also free when calling any US 800 toll free number and Skype also works for any other non-geographical number in the UK, though some may carry a charge.
