In the unfortunate event you are dissatisfied with the service EasiDrive has provided in respect of its claims management activities, our complaints procedure is detailed below.

Complaints

We understand we don’t always get things right every time and sometimes customers will feel it necessary to complain. We take every complaint we receive from a customer very seriously; logging, investigating, resolving and reporting back to customers where our service has not met our usual high standards.

On this page we have provided contact details should you wish to report a complaint, details of our complaints process as well as other helpful information about timings and the regulatory bodies that oversee our complaints process.

How our complaint process works

We find most complaints can be resolved by speaking directly to the manager of the team responsible for your claim. We will aim to resolve your complaint as soon as possible, normally within three business days, at which point we will send you confirmation in writing that your complaint has been resolved. On occasions we will require a bit longer to resolve your complaint and in this case we will send you an acknowledgement letter telling you when we hope to reach a decision. We will then continue to keep you updated on our progress.:

We will try to resolve the problem and provide an answer within four weeks. In some cases it may take us more than four weeks – but we will advise you of any further time we require – and you will receive a full and final response within eight weeks of the original complaint being made. The response will either:

  • Uphold your complaint; telling you why and what action we intend to carry out to put this right for you or..
  • If we do not uphold your complaint, we will explain our reasons for doing so
  • Inform you whether you are now entitled to refer the complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (“FOS”)
Escalating a Complaint

Financial Ombudsman Service (“FOS”)

If you are an eligible complainant, you are able to refer a complaint to the FOS if you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint. The FOS can consider a compliant if it relates to an act or omission by EasiDrive whilst carrying out a regulated activity, i.e. an activity which is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”). EasiDrive is a hire company providing credit hire vehicles to customers following a non-fault accident. As an ancillary service we refer customers who are injured to a trusted panel of solicitors and this service is a regulated activity and FCA rules provide that any complaint you have in respect of this activity should be referred to the FOS.:

The Financial Ombudsman Service can be reached via:

  • Telephone: 0300 123 9123 or by email at complaints@easidrive.com
  • Post: The Financial Ombudsman Service, Exchange Tower, London, E14 9SR.
