Making a Complaint

We know that sometimes things can go wrong. Our number one priority is to provide you with the highest level of customer service. If there's a problem, please let us know and we'll try to provide a solution as quickly as possible.

We can usually resolve most issues straightaway. If it takes longer, we'll contact you to let you know who will be dealing with it and what the next steps are.

After looking into your complaint, we will respond as quickly as possible, and if no decision has been reached we will update you on progress after 4 and 8 weeks. If you disagree with our decision, feel we have misunderstood anything or you have any extra information please let us know.

The Financial Ombudsman Service

If we haven't issued our 'final response' within eight weeks from the date you first raised your complaint, or if you're dissatisfied with our response, you can ask the Financial Ombudsman Service for an independent review. The Financial Ombudsman Service may only consider your complaint once you've tried to resolve it with us, so please take up your concerns with us first and we'll do all we can to help.

Online Dispute Resolution Platform

The European Commission has established an Online Dispute Resolution Platform (ODR Platform) https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home2.show&lng=EN is specifically designed to help EU consumers who have bought goods or services online from a trader based elsewhere in the EU and subsequently has a problem with that online purchase.
