- Once we’ve confirmed that You can use the Card Payment arrangement, You’ll have 14 days from the date that You make your first purchase via Your Card Payment arrangement to change Your mind and let us know that You don’t want to pay for Services using this method. We’ll then cancel any Services already requested via Card Payment. You will have to pay for any Services used during Your cooling off period.

Hire, Continuous payment authority terms
- These terms apply when You set up a Hire continuous payment authority to pay for Goods or Services. This means that You have set up a Card Payment arrangement to pay for recurring Goods or Services, such as Rental or Hires, using a credit or debit card.
- You can only set up a continuous payment authority to pay for Goods or Services directly using a credit or debit card if You have already entered into a Card Payment arrangement, see “Card Payment Terms” above for details. When You pay for recurring Goods or Services via Card Payment you agree that we can automatically take payment for future recurring Goods or Services from Your registered payment card. You will be able to choose the Goods or Services that You wish to regularly Rent or Hire. For example, if You choose a £19.99 per week, payments of £19.99 will be taken from your payment card every week.
- When You set up a continuous payment authority and make a purchase of recurring Goods or Services, we will tell You how much and how often You will pay. If You don’t make a recurring purchase at the time that You set up your Card Payment arrangement we will tell you how much and how often You will pay at the time You make Your first payment under Your continuous payment authority. We’ll also let You know every time we take a payment, if a payment fails or when Your continuous payment authority is cancelled or suspended. We’ll keep taking payments from Your nominated credit or debit card until You (or Your card issuer) tell us to stop (which you can do at any time) or until one of the events.
- If You want to cancel Your continuous payment authority, You’ll have to let us know by 16.00 4 day’s before we’re due to take Your payment.
- If You provide details of Your My Easy Living Mobility Account, or a continuous payment authority to a third party, we will assume that You have given that person access to your Account and permission to request Services on Your behalf.
- For a continuous payment authority for recurring Rental or Hires, You should be aware that:
- if You decide to change the Goods or Services that You Rent or Hire, we’ll let You know if You need to start paying more and automatically update your continuous payment authority;
- if You start a new Rental or Hire of the same type early, we’ll automatically update the timing and amount of subsequent payments under Your continuous payment authority to line up with the recurrence of Your Rental or Hire;
- if You decide to buy a Rental or Hire before You’ve used up the allowances in Your current Rental or Hire (“stacking”), we’ll take payment as soon as you have chosen it. However, the payment recurrence date (if applicable) under Your continuous payment authority will line up with Your Rental or Hire activation date. The activation date is the date You start using the inclusive allowances from Your stacked Hire or Rental;
- if You decide to stack a pack with a Goods or Service that cannot be paid for via Card Payment, we’ll assume that You wish to suspend Your Card Payment service and, until You tell us otherwise, will continue take payment for Services from Your top up balance; and
- if You cancel Your Card Payment service but do not cancel an automatically Rental or Hire, we’ll automatically cancel the next Rental or Hire.
- We reserve the right to terminate any continuous payment authority where we believe Your payment card is being used unlawfully or fraudulently.
