Directory Enquiries- any cheap versions recommended ?

Recently moved to HomePhone.
My wife dialled 100 for dirctory enqs. (i.e.118500)  without me knowing, and it cost me 78p. for 1 min !  Cry
Can anyone recommend a reliable, cheaper number to use in future ?    Undecided

If you are looking for a "local number" say , " fitness centre"  Margate (or where you live)  and you know the name, if you just google for it, you could find the phone number is also listed.... if you "google maps"  it, you will get the alternatives too !

EDIT....
And make sure you have this  http://www.saynoto0870.com/
in your Favourites/Bookmark list...... useful for alternative numbers not on high rates...
Surprising how many have "ordinary" phone numbers that you can call.....
