Stop The £99 Petrol Fee
Stop the £99 "pay at pump" pre - authorisation check at petrol stations.
Why is this important?
This is an unfair charge that could lead to people entering unarranged overdraft and occurring extra credit card/debit card fees or even being left with no way to purchase fuel. I have, myself, been charged because of this issue.
When you buy at the pump, the banks used to make a small £1 charge to check your card then refund it. But now they are automatically ringfencing £99 before you can get petrol, it is wholly unacceptable.
This should be outlawed as people are going to find these charges on their accounts without realising this.
