How long will it take?

Immediately

Our aim is to resolve your complaint straight away.

4 business days

If we have been unable to resolve your complaint, within 4 business days after we received it, we will write to you to:

10 business days

In the majority of cases, we will be able to resolve your complaint within 10 business days of receiving it. If we have not resolved it within 10 business days, we will contact you again to update you with progress and tell you how much longer we anticipate it will take.

20 business days

If we have not been able to resolve your complaint within 20 business days, we will contact you again to update you with our progress and tell you how much longer we anticipate it will take.

40 business days

In exceptional circumstances where your complaint is particularly complex, matters may take up to 40 business days to resolve. If your complaint is not resolved within 40 business days, then we will write to you requesting more time or send you a "Final Response". After 40 business days has elapsed, you may be eligible to contact the Financial Ombudsman Service to discuss your complaint. They may be able to look into your complaint and help you reach a satisfactory conclusion.

What happens if we cannot reach agreement?

Tesco Compare is a member of the Financial Ombudsman Service and if we cannot reach agreement with you, we will send you a "Final Response" letter. This will clearly set out our position with regard to your complaint and will advise you on how to contact the Financial Ombudsman Service if you wish them to review your case. Any referral to them must be made within six months of the date of our "final response".

The Financial Ombudsman Service

The Financial Ombudsman Service offers a free independent service and they can help with most financial complaints. However, there are some limitations on what the Financial Ombudsman Service can look into, and further information about this can be obtained from them directly.

We are committed to resolving your complaint fairly and quickly. In most cases, this can be done if you contact the relevant business area at the beginning. They will try to resolve your complaint by listening to you to understand what has gone wrong.

Our aim is to resolve all complaints internally. However, if you are not satisfied with our suggested resolution, or if eight weeks have passed since you first brought your complaint to our attention, you have the right to refer your case to the Financial Ombudsman Service. If you want the Financial Ombudsman Service to look into your complaint, you must contact them within six months of the date of any final response issued.

You can write to them at:
