    Thanks Tom. Great idea. I don’t think that the 03 numbers are available outside the U.K. though.

    I believe 03 numbers should be accessible from outside the UK
    O3 are local rate non geographical numbers.
    You are only charged at the local rate rather than at the national rate (when calling from a landline) regardless of where you are in the UK. As such they should also work from outside the UK

    Tom, with more and more mobiles including overseas numbers as part of inclusive minutes, it is sometimes easier/quicker to call overseas call centres to get a response. I realise we have to be sensible, but could a number in USA, Asia and Australia be included.

    Without complicating matters – is it possible for a box or excel be included into the thread to make it easier to read…(on the basis overseas call centres can be included).

    Probably worth mentioning here that http://www.saynoto0870.com gives geographical alternatives to 08 and 03 numbers which possibly can’t be dialled from outside UK, or which carry higher costs.

    Good point. I’m putting links to the contact number pages where I can find them behind the airline names so if you click on that it takes you to the main page and local or international numbers are sometimes accessible from there.

    I’ve also started a list of all the lost property office numbers of every airport worldwide.

    It’s been a very slow day.

    There’s an interesting thread – “I lost property and lost property office found it”

    Appreciate the work Tom – thank you..

    Hi Tom
    Just to let you know that Qatar Airways have their own dedicated lost property dept at LHR-T4. Phone number is +44 (0) 208 976 5628. Very helpful they are too!

    Very useful, thanks Tom, though I have a feeling that this will become and endless task?
    Just as useful would be contact numbers in other countries. While I agree with Martyn many people have all inclusive phone minutes, many don’t, and using (Swisscom in my case) other non-uk operators can be very expensive, as can using a hotel phone.

    More useful I think would be real numbers for lost or delayed baggage, rather than the pre-recorded message you get on an endless loop. I use to have one for Swiss in Zurich which bypassed the pre-recorded one, but as I never used it I seem to have lost it! But they do exist as shown by BPP giving the QR one. If i come across it I’ll share it with you Tom for inclusion in your directory.

    Thank you

    It’s definitely an endless task, but that means we can keep it updated and it might be useful. The links behind some of the airlines take you to a page whcih then asks you to seelct your contry and in that way find the most relevant number for help.

    Funnily enough, the Lost Property offices of airports (at least in the UK) seems to be run by a couple of companies – Bagport UK and The Excess Baggage Company, neither of whom seem to keen to talk, perhaps because their contract is with the airport, and according to at least one of the, the terms are confidential !
