It’s always nice to get compliments. So, if you’re especially happy about our service, or you have a suggestion on how we can make things better, we’d love to hear from you.

We’re just as keen to hear about when our service falls below the very high standards we set ourselves – it helps us improve. Therefore, if you have a complaint, please get in touch.

Our complaints handling procedure


At Vavista we try our best to resolve every complaint to the highest standard. However, should you still have concerns you may be entitled to refer it to the Financial Ombudsman Service. Please address your complaint in writing to:

The Financial Ombudsman Service
Exchange Tower
Harbour Exchange Square
London E14 9SR

Tel: 0800 023 4567 (from a landline) or 0300 123 9 123 (from a mobile)

We are also required to inform you that you can use the European Commission’s Online Dispute Resolution platform to provide details of your complaint, if you purchased your policy online. The complaint will then be forwarded to the Financial Ombudsman Service however this may be a slower route for handling your complaint than if you contact the Financial Ombudsman Service directly.
