I just had a lot of grief changing a plane ticket from a somewhat exotic location.
It involved calling with Skype from Tbilisi Georgia to the nearest office for my airline in Istanbul Turkey.
It turned out the office's booking system for the airline was having some trouble but he told me I could call the airline direct on a toll-free number. He assured me it would work even though I didn't expect such things to work internationally.
I tried using Skype and I tried using a Georgian mobile phone. I couldn't get either to work.
So that's the back story. The actual question is Is there a way to call "international" toll-free phone numbers?
The reason for the scare quotes on "international" is because it's a vague term. It may mean either of these things:
- Something like 800 / 0 800 / 1 800 numbers that can be called from any country.
- Toll-free number in country A that can be called even if you're in country B. In which case you'd need to use the country code as well as the 800 / 0 800 / 1 800 part somehow.
