How we handle complaints
When a disagreement or issue arises between one of our team members and a customer, we follow this procedure:
- We recommend you make your first contact with our helpful customer service team through phone or mail, as described above.
- We try to resolve all written complaints as quickly as possible, and promise to be in touch within five business days. We’ll then let you know an expected timeframe for resolving your complaint, so you’ll always know what to expect in the process.
- We log all customer feedback and complaints in our system, so there’s always a record of it. After that, we review all feedback with the appropriate teams, and identify any ongoing trends or opportunities to improve our products and services.
- If your complaint still isn’t resolved after you first get in touch, we recommend escalating the matter to one of the team leaders within our customer service centre.
- If you’ve escalated the matter through our team leaders and you still don’t feel as though your complaint’s been resolved, we suggest you contact our local ombudsman. You’ll find their details below.
