It doesn't matter if you need to cancel a phone plan, TV packages like BT sport, or your Sky account. DoNotPay is here to help you get it handled promptly. Cancelling should be quick and simple, not frustrating and lengthy.

Does BT Have Cancellation Policies?

Most companies have particular policies about cancelling. Whether you're trying to end your relationship with, Now TV, Virgin Media, or Admiral, you must understand which policies apply. BT's policies are the following:

  • You must provide 30 days' notice to cancel.
  • You will be charged for your service if you cancel before the 30 days.
  • You only need to give 14 days' notice if you switch to a new provider.
  • No notice is required if the account holder passes away, and no minimum days apply.

Can I Cancel My BT Phone Line on My Own?

Call BT Customer Service via Landline

The best method for cancelling your BT phone line is calling via a landline phone. You need to provide:

How Can I Cancel My BT Phone Line Within the 14-Day Period?

The 14-day period for switching allows you to cancel your phone line if you are changing to an entirely new provider. You will need to call the same customer service number as above. Let BT know you want to cancel because you are switching to a different company, and then wait out the 14-day limit for it to become effective.

Will BT Charge Me a Cancellation Fee?

As long as you cancel within the correct time frame and pay the remainder of your bill, you will not be charged a cancellation fee. However, if you wish to cut your contract immediately, you will be charged a fee by BT. The fee varies depending on the final amount owed and how soon you're cancelling before the time frame is up.
