118 directory enquiries, and bank holidays abroad

Duration:
56 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 27 May 2013

BT confirms it has increased the amount of information on its 118 500 directory enquiry service. We compare how prices vary between various 118 companies. Simon Calder examines the summer airline schedules to see whether they reveal anything about changing travel trends. Plus, extra charges for your flight. Is the list of add-on costs growing ever longer? Also in the programme, claims that energy firms shouldn't be the ones encouraging us to use less energy and a victory for ex-pats who invested in property abroad that was never built. Throughout the programme we hear from BBC foreign correspondents about how people spend their public holidays abroad. Presenter: Julian Worricker. Producer: John Neal.
