We think great customer service helps make great insurance, but we know we don’t always get everything right. If things do go wrong we’ll do our best to clear things up quickly and fairly.

Here’s how we deal with complaints, how long it takes, and who to get in touch with.

You can call, email or write to us directly using the relevant contact details found below. A member of our complaints team will work with you by phone, email or letter to try and resolve anything you’re not happy about.
Within...

5 days

We will:

  • confirm that we’ve got your complaint; and
  • give you the name of the person who’s looking into it.

4 weeks

We’ll either:

  • send you our final response to your complaint and tell you our reasons for it; or
  • explain why we can’t give you a final response just yet and let you know when we can.

8 weeks

We’ll either:

  • send you our final response to your complaint and tell you our reasons for it; or
  • explain why we still can’t give you a final response, let you know when we can, and tell you how to get in touch with the Financial Ombudsman Service, if you want to.

If you’re not satisfied with our final response, or with our reasons for not getting back to you sooner, you can take your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

The Financial Ombudsman Service offers a free independent complaint resolution service.

You have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service, free of charge - but you must do so within six months of the date of the final response letter.

If you do not refer your complaint in time, the Ombudsman will not have our permission to consider your complaint and so will only be able to do so in very limited circumstances. For example, if the Ombudsman believes that the delay was as a result of exceptional circumstances.
