Phoning MS from outside UK

We will be in Lanzarote when the 7 month window opens up for us.

Has anybody any experience of booking when in another country?

If you dial there regular line you should be ok, but not sure if you can get a freephone line from Lanzarote, maybe worth a call to see if there is an access number they can provide you with for Spainish telephones.

Just to let you know I used the access number from Lanzarote that MS gave me, and phoned from a payphone(for free!). It all went perfectly and stress free just as it normally does from here.

Managed to get BCV at 7 months for the end of September snd could have got BWV too. This did surprise me as it it F & W. Woohoo!!!
