Making a complaint
Let's make things right
We are committed to providing you with the best possible customer experience. Telling us when you are unhappy is important as it means we have an opportunity to put things right there and then and improve the service we offer in future.
This page tells you how and where to make a complaint and what we will do to resolve it promptly and fairly.
How to contact us?
We are happy to receive and respond to complaints in other languages and will arrange for a translation service to assist where available. Where possible, we will make information on our complaints process available in other languages.
What information do I need to provide?
To help us resolve your issues as quickly as possible when you contact us, please provide us with as much relevant information as possible, including:
Your card number (If you write to us for security reasons please do not include your full card number. The card number should always be supplied by providing the first six and last four digits only, as follows 123456******7890.)
- Your name
- Your address
- Your contact telephone number
- Clear details of your complaint
- What you would like us to do to resolve matters
When we receive a complaint, we aim to resolve your issues fairly and promptly. Where possible we will endeavour to resolve your issues as soon as reasonably possible. If we need more time to investigate your complaint, we will send you an acknowledgement letter and we will keep you updated on our progress throughout our investigation.
If you are not satisfied with our final response or if 8 weeks has passed since you first let us know about your complaint, you can refer the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service which provides an independent review service for unresolved complaints that is free to customers.

The European Commission has established an Online Dispute Resolution Platform (ODR Platform). It is specifically designed to help consumers resident in the European Union (EU) who have a complaint about goods or services bought online from traders established in the EU. You can submit your complaint online through the ODR platform in any of the official languages of the EU. The ODR platform can then submit your complaint to the UK Financial Ombudsman Service to facilitate resolution of your complaint.
You can access the ODR platform by clicking on the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/
You may use the ODR service if you are an EU resident and have a complaint about a product or service purchased from us online. As the ODR platform will ultimately re-direct your complaint to the UK Financial Ombudsman Service, you may prefer to contact us or the Financial Ombudsman Service directly in the first instance.
