If you wish to make a complaint please check your policy for details of the person to contact.  Alternatively contact your broker or if the complaint relates to a claim contact whoever has been handling your claim to inform them of your dissatisfaction.

What is a Complaint?

The Autorite de Controle Prudentiel et de Resoultion (ACPR) defines a complaint as :

A statement of dissatisfaction from a customer to a professional organisation.  A request for a service, information, clarification or an opinion is not a complaint.

How Lloyd's Will Handle Your Complaint

If you remain dissatisfied once you have received the final response, or you do not receive a final response within two months you may refer your complaint to the Insurance Ombudsman at the French Federation of Insurers (FFSA). Their contact details are :
