I have no landline, however most companies who want you to phone them insist in using 0845 / 0870 / 0GodWhereDidMyMoneyGo numbers, that are even more expensive from a mobile.

Some of the oddest offenders of this are transport companies, you know the people who you want to ask the time of their service while not at home?

Over the years I have made a small collection of other ways to get hold of people hidden in call centers, and I thought it would be nice to share my list:

Train Operating Companies

At some point over the next while I will add more types of numbers to my blog, including car / bike / narrowboat insurance companies. (yes goSkippy you as well).
