Why pay by Direct Debit?

Direct Debits are simple and once set up, payments will automatically be paid out of your bank account - meaning its one less thing for you to worry about!

You can set this for any day between the 1st and the 28th of each month.

You can also choose what date of the month to make your payment and also if you want payments to be weekly or monthly.
