Requesting a refund

The easiest way to request a refund is on the My Bills page in My Account. Below is a list of our refund options and the time taken to process a refund:

  • Directly to your bank account - a quick and easy way using the bank details registered to your TalkTalk account. The refund will be in your bank account within 7 working days. If you have more than one bank account, you can request a refund to your nominated bank account in My Account if your Direct Debit is active.
  • Card refund - only available if you have a card registered to your TalkTalk account. Card refunds aren't yet available online, however our live chat team will be happy to help. Once requested you will receive your card refund within 5 working days.


You can request a refund if your account balance is in credit and one of the following applies to you:

  • You've made an overpayment and the payment was made more than 2 working days ago (this allows for the payment to successfully clear to us)
  • You've paid for something you shouldn't have been charged for
  • Your account is in credit once you've disconnected your services and received your final bill

We won't refund you in the following circumstances:

  • Your account isn't in credit
  • The credit on your account isn't from an overpayment, incorrect payment or final bill credit
  • When a bill is about to be produced (within 4 working days) which will use up the credit on your account
  • If you've already requested a refund through another channel 
  • If your services haven't gone live yet


Refund less than expected?

If the amount refunded is less than the amount requested this is usually because charges have been applied to your account between the time the refund was requested and it being processed. You can view any charges applied to your account in your transaction history in My Account.
