How to cancel a recurring card payment
A recurring card payment is where you give a company your debit or credit card details so that they can take regular payments from you, for example once a month or year.
Contact the company directly
You can cancel a recurring card payment up until the working day before the next payment is due to leave your account.
To cancel, you can speak directly to the company taking the payment.
When you talk to the company, you can either:
- end your subscription or membership, or
- agree on a different way for you to pay any money you owe.
Make a note of the date you cancelled and what you agreed. If you can, get this in writing.
Alternatively you can ask us to cancel the recurring payment.
Ask us to cancel it for you
We can block recurring card payments for you. You need to tell us by 4pm at least 1 working day before the payment is due to leave your account.
Sometimes a payment might be taken if it was already being processed. If the payment leaves your account after you’ve asked us to cancel it, please get in touch with us.
