How to Cancel Virgin Media Subscription Within 14 Days
Cancelling your subscription is critical when trying to avoid unnecessary charges. The earlier, the better. This article will guide you on how to cancel Virgin Media within 14 days.
Cancelling Virgin Media is a bit different from other service providers. When switching providers, you simply sign up for a new plan, and your new ISP will notify your old ISP. However, because Virgin runs an independent network that is not shared with other ISPs, you will be responsible for handling the cancellation and setting up a new subscription.
Cancelling your Virgin Media subscription can get confusing and overwhelming sometimes. Luckily, DoNotPay is here to help you. Stick with us to learn more about our cancellation product.
What Are Virgin Media’s Cancellation Policies?
Virgin Media broadband contracts are fixed for a defined period (typically 18 months), after which they transition to a rolling monthly contract. If you terminate your contract before the stated period ends, you may have to pay an early termination fee. Depending on your situation, Virgin Media may waive the termination fee.
If you ordered Virgin Media services online, over the phone, or through an agent attending and signed a new contract, you can cancel your subscription within the first 14 days (cooling-off period). Any cancellation during this period will not attract an early termination fee.
However, some digital content, such as Pay-Per-View movies, that Virgin Media delivers as part of the television service are not subject to cooling off rights. If you wish to cancel your subscription after the defined period, you'll have to file a 30-day notice. If the defined period of your Virgin Media contract has ended, you can cancel for free.
