Elizabeth Crampton from the Citizens Advice Bureau was our guest tonight on West Herts Drivetime, Elizabeth covered the following topics;
Price Comparison Web Sites
With another energy company raising tariffs today, it seems we have never been more in need of price comparison sites to find the best deal. The Office of Fair Trading have published a report about how to make best use of these sites, full details can be found at www.oft.gov.uk.Three reccomended comparison sites to visit are www.moneyadvice.org.uk for insurance comparisons, www.ofcom.org.uk for your phone and broadband quotes and www.consumerfocus.org.uk.
Pay day loans are an area to be wary of, a new good practice customer charter has been brought in by four main trade associations, setting out what we can expect from pay day lenders. Find the advice and fill in a survey about loans at www.adviceguide.org.uk.
