We are really sorry you are not happy, we want to sort things out for you quickly.
We work hard to try and stop things going wrong so that you do not have to complain, but we know we are not perfect and when things are not right, we need you to tell us.
This page sets out the steps on how you can complain to us, and what you can expect to happen.
How to raise a complaint:
Contact us directly
Let us know what the problem is.

We aim to respond to your complaint as soon as possible, but no later than 2-working days.
We’ll provide dedicated support
If we are unable to resolve your complaint when you first contact us, our dedicated Customer Service Team will continue to review your complaint and take responsibility for it until it is resolved. We aim to resolve all complaints where possible within 15-days.

What happens when you raise a complaint?
We will try to resolve your complaint as quickly as possible. The outcome will always result in one or more of the following:
- An apology
- An explanation
- Appropriate remedial action(s)
- A financial award given the circumstance(s)
Please note: we are a resolution-based company and we like to fix things as soon as the matter is brought to our attention. We will work hard to investigate the issue and make sure measures are put in place to stop it from happening again. Not every outcome will result in a financial award and whilst we will consider it, depending on the individual circumstances, we believe that the award itself does not fix the problem.
What happens if we are unable to resolve your complaint within eight weeks or cannot reach a satisfactory resolution?
