Saving money when phoning DRI
« on: January 04, 2010, 10:12:40 »
If you want to contact DRI at Citrus House, don't pay the premium rate by using the 0845 numbers, here's a list of alternative national or even local rate numbers to use instead:

Diamond Resorts General = 0845 359 0009 = 01524 840861 = 01524 58980
Diamond Resorts Owner Operations = 0845 359 0007 = 01524 589886
Diamond Resorts Reservations = 0845 359 0005 = 01524 589800
Diamond Resorts Management fees = 01524 589875

Regards

David,

For some people though 0845 numbers are free -

BT is to become the first telecoms company in the UK to offer free calls to 0870 and 0845 numbers by including them in customer call packages.

Some 14 million customers on Anytime and Evening and Weekend packages will benefit from the move, allowing them to call insurance firms, energy providers and other companies than use such numbers without incurring extra charges.

The company said its decision to scrap 0870 and 0845 fees - which was made following complaints from customers - will cost it tens of millions of pounds.

John Petter, Managing Director of BT's consumer business, said: "We know that the public is frustrated by having to pay higher charges for these numbers."

BT's move comes as the government is considering a ban on the use of 084 numbers in GP surgeries.

Campaigners argue that such numbers - which allow surgeries to keep patient callers in a queue - go against the free-at-the-point-of-need principles of the NHS.

Hi Timesharetalk

I'm with Talktalk and my package allows free 0845/0870 calls only during evenings and at weekends. As these are not the best time to contact DRI, I rely on the local/national numbers, as they are free any time.

Regards
David
