What happens next
You should receive your swipecard within 14 days. Therefore another payment method should be used until the swipecard arrives.
Where you can use your swipecard
You can pay at any Post Office who also accept cash or cheque with bank cards.
Alternatively you can use a swipecard to pay at any PayPoint by cash only. PayPoint locations can be found in local shopping centres, shops and supermarkets across the country.
Make sure you allow two working days for us to receive your payments.
If you lose one of your swipecards we can replace it on request for free with seven working days. A lost or stolen card is of no use to anyone else and doesn't show your address. You can ask for a replacement by using the above form.
If you are unable to use the online form to request a swipecard, then one can be requested by calling 01482 300 300.
