Direct Debit guarantee

When you agree to pay by Direct Debit you are automatically covered by the following guarantee:

This guarantee is offered by all banks and building societies that take part in the Direct Debit scheme. The efficiency and security of the scheme is monitored and protected by your own bank or building society.

If the amounts to be paid or the payment dates change, we will notify you at least 10 working days in advance of your account being debited or as otherwise agreed.

If an error is made by ourselves or your bank or building society, you are guaranteed a full and immediate refund from your branch of the amount paid.

You can cancel a Direct Debit at any time, by writing to your bank or building society. Please also send a copy of your letter to us.
