Yes they're not included in the tariffs apart from the ones here:
There's a website called 'saynoto0870' which you can use to find regional geographic alternative numbers for companies. These numbers are more likely to be included in your free minutes just like home telephone numbers.
Steer clear lo-call and nongeographic numbers though.
I just think the whole thing is a con anyway. Ofcom should make it illegal to charge a premium for dialling 08 numbers. They should cost the same as the standard 01/02 numbers they are associated with. The only advantage of having an 08 number should be the fact it can be easier to remember. There shouldn't be additional costs involved.
It's the same with everything these days though. Consumers are led to believe they are getting a good deal, but there is no such thing as a good deal, we are constantly being ripped off.
