Simpler still is BT's Call Diversion service. This connects callers to you anywhere in the world, even to a mobile phone. The caller need never know where you are. But this service is indiscriminate and connects all calls, regardless of their importance. The recipient, not the caller, pays for the full cost of the diverted part of the call, which can be expensive. Nor is it possible to turn off Call Diversion from a remote phone, so you could find yourself paying an international rate for a double- glazing company to track you down.
For the occasional trip, a local secretarial bureau could handle calls at quite a low cost. Or there is the lowest cost option of all - a compliant relative or friend, armed with paper and a ballpoint pen.
