@carlos there is usually a deadline of six months for a chargeback (which is probably what you are encountering) but there is no such deadline for s75.

so the system doesnt specify if I want to open up a chargeback or a section 75 claim (however as its a credit card and valued £890 its the latter). I have to phone them which will be longer (as I have all evidence on pdf and a covering letter which spans a page or two)

I filled in that form and submitted all the evidence as required by post. The response was number of txts followed by a docusign request for a S75 form with boxes that required me to explain all over again but was too small for the explanation, and upload buttons that wouldnt let me send all the docs I’d sent previously.

The decision letter stated that I there was no evidence to support my claim and it was rejected. So they hadnt married up the original postal form and evidence I’d sent with the docusign form.

It’s an incredibly poor system.

Now I have a reference number on the S75 rejection letter I have to submit it all again by post and ask them to reopen the case.

horrible experience, is that barlcaycard?
I know the amex experience is pretty good, i did it for an airline and they were super responsive – it worked in my favour too but since they allowed me to rebook it was quashed.
