See here :-
0800Buster.co.uk: Call 0800, 0808 & 0500 Numbers Free From Your Mobile

Instructions

1. Dial 01207 45 0800
2. Enter the 0800, 0808, or 0500 number you want to phone
3. Press # to start the call

Call 0800, 0808 & 0500 Numbers Free* From Your Mobile

Most mobile phone providers in the UK still charge their users for calls to 0800, 0808 and 0500 numbers. 0800Buster lets you call these numbers using your mobile’s inclusive minutes, by providing you with a UK landline number to dial instead.
No registration or set-up is necessary, and the service is completely free*. Just dial 01207 45 0800, enter the full free-phone number you want to call at the prompt, then press #—it’s that simple!


Disclaimer

* “Free” assumes you receive inclusive minutes to UK landlines as part of your mobile phone contract. 0800Buster access numbers should be included in these free minutes, and should otherwise be charged at your provider’s normal UK landline rate. 0800Buster.co.uk accepts no liability for any costs incurred from using our service.

does this still work these days or is there a newer way around 0808 ect numbers

Try “WEQ4U” app.
Its free and i saved a lot using it.
On playstore/app store.

You need data to use it.
Cant fault the app as i saved loads ringing HMRC and vermin with it.

Also 0800 numbers are now free on mobiles. There is no charge.
