What is a Section 75 claim?
Section 75 laws mean your credit card provider must protect purchases over £100 and below £30,000 for free, so if there's a problem you could get your money back.
What am I covered for?
The Consumer Credit Act 1974 means your credit card provider is jointly and severally responsible for any breach of contract or misrepresentation by a retailer or trader including if it they go bust.
You can claim if you order goods that don’t arrive or that are not in the condition described when purchased.
It covers costs but there’s also an opportunity to claim for associated costs. So, if an airline went bust when you were on holiday and you needed to book new return flights to get home, these costs should be covered.
It applies to foreign transactions as well as goods bought online, by telephone, or mail order for delivery to the UK from overseas.
You can even claim against a now closed credit card account.
The law also applies to store cards.
What if I paid the balance by bank transfer?
Section 75 laws cover you for the total cost of the product or service, even if you only paid 1p on credit you could still claim all of your monies back.
