Pay by Direct Debit

This is the simplest and most convenient way to pay. There are no cheques to write, no cash to deal with and no ongoing paperwork because payments are made for you by your bank or building society.

You remain in control of your payments, as we will notify you at least 10 working days before any change to your payments. You are guaranteed a full and immediate refund by your bank in the unlikely event of an error and you are free to cancel the direct debit instruction at any time.
