Payment Protection on Credit Cards

In all the furor about mis-sold payment protection insurance, credit card PPI is often overlooked. Although credit card PPI is often less expensive than loan PPI the costs can significantly added up over time particularly if you have more than one card. If payment protection on credit cards is mis-sold, therefore, the costs can really add up.

How credit card PPI charges are applied

As a general rule, credit card payment protection charges are applied on a monthly basis and relate to the outstanding balance on the card. The cost is usually around 79p per £100 outstanding. If, for example, you owe £5,000 you may pay in the region of £39.50 per month. This may not sound like a huge amount, but, over the course of a year, that is  £474.00. The good news is, if your lenders did not fully explain the costs you may be entitled to make a payment protection claim for compensation.

Mis-sold Payment Protection on Credit Cards

Most people are aware that payment protection insurance has been widely mis-sold in the past, but many people do not realise that the mis-selling applies to credit card PPI as well as loan and mortgage PPI. Common ways in which policies have been mis-sold on credit cards include:

- Cover being sold to customers who are ineligible to use it.
- Cover being sold without the full terms and conditions being made clear.
- Cover being added without the customer's knowledge.
- Cover being sold to customers who may have no or little use for it.
