Lyca Mobile, super high cost, am I being turned over?

Hi All,

My first post here, even though I've been lurking for 18 months

I'm an IT project manager, working at a bank, having spent many years in London, but now living in a little village near Zürich where life is much better etc...

I've been on Swisscom PAYG for a while, because I hardly use the phone, but was enticed into buying a Lyca mobile SIM for easy cheap calls to the UK.

Their website tariff says 0.09CHF per min to landline and 0.29CHF to a mobile. However, today I called the UK tax office on +44 845 xxxxxx (that's another story...) and for my 27 minute call I was changed 12.75CHF, which works out at about 0.47CHF per minute!!!

I've looked all over the Lebara web site for special rates for UK 08xx numbers, but I can't find anything. Anyone else had similar experiences?

Thanks for your time,
Phil

Oops, in my email I said Lyca then Lebara. Both companies seem to have the same rates website and everything else, but in case you know something I don't it is definitely a Lyca mobile SIM, I put Lebara by accident!
