Can You Cancel Payment Protection on Credit Cards

Loan insurance, loan protection, payment protection, payment insurance, and payment protection insurance have received a bad reputation because of having been mis sold so often. These payment protection insurance policies were mis-sold by lenders in order for the lenders to generate more money for themselves. A mis-sale is considered to be when a service or item is sold to someone who cannot or will not be able to use it. The lenders who mis-sold payment insurance more than likely did so with intentions of charging interest on the money loaned and also by boosting the credit card's monthly installments.

Lenders Misrepresent Coverage

Many times lenders would insinuate that by purchasing a payment protection policy it would increase the chances of being approved for the credit card. The fact of the matter is payment protection would not increase the chances of them getting approved for loan rather, more likely to increase the price of repayments on the loan. Payment insurance is in all actuality, a service in which borrowers receive monetary assistance for financial services covered in the payment protection policy in case they become unable to make the payments because they are ill or hospitalized. Many credit card holders who had payment protection wanted to cancel the policy but didn't know how to go about it.
