The Financial Ombudsman Service
Exchange Tower

Tel: 0800 023 4567 (from a landline) or 0300 123 9 123 (from a mobile)

We are also required to inform you that you can use the European Commission's Online Dispute Resolution platform to provide details of your complaint, if you purchased your policy online. The complaint will then be forwarded to the Financial Ombudsman Service however this may be a slower route for handling your complaint than if you contact the Financial Ombudsman Service directly.
