Been ripped off by using a credit card to pay at a payphone abroad, any advice please?

Hi guys,

I went on holiday to Austria for a week recently, and I thought that I would pay for my calls home from the payphone via credit card instead of buying a phone card, as I never use all the minutes on the phone card. I made 5 calls all together, 3 of them I just ended up leaving an answerphone mesage for and the other 2 calls were pretty short. I have just seen my credit card bill and each call has cost me £20+!! Does anyone know of any way that I can check this with anyone? In effect I have been charged £120 to make 5 very quick calls.

Rep will be added for any helpful suggestions.

Thanks, I am thinking of doing that chargeback thing but I have seen that it would charge me to get it done so I'm unsure. :roll:

There was probably a sign saying minimum call charge of £20 in the box for credi card so I doubt your CC company can do anything.
