Financial Services Compensation Scheme
We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). If we fail to carry out our responsibilities, you may be entitled to compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. Information about the scheme is available at www.fscs.org.uk or by phone on 0800 678 1100 or 0207 741 4100
European Commission Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) platform
You can also use the ODR platform if you bought your policy online. Set up by the EU, this service will allow you to make a complaint about a good or service you bought and find a neutral third party (“dispute resolution body”) to handle the dispute.
