How to Get a British Gas Overpayment Refund on Your Own
To get a British Gas overpayment refund on your own, all of your accounts must be in good standing. In other words, if you overpaid your residential bill but your business bill is delinquent, you can't get a refund. If you qualify for a refund, you have a couple of options for recourse:
|Can You Request a Refund Via||Yes/No|
|Company Website/ Support Form (or another alternative method)||Yes|
- Calling and requesting a refund
- Chatting online with a customer service agent
Calling to Request a Refund
If you want to call British Gas for an overpayment refund, you may do so by dialing 0333 202 9804. With that being said, do not expect to reach anyone outside the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM Monday through Friday. If you call outside these hours, you will be sorely disappointed.
We know it's frustrating that businesses seem to only operate while most people are at work and can't take time off to request an overpayment refund. Fortuitously, you can use DoNotPay to skip British Gas's phone queue and speak with a customer service representative directly.
