    Section 75 on cancelled credit card?

    Section 75 on cancelled credit card? 12th Mar 17 at 10:44 PM
    Hi

    A quick query. I have a couple of old cards that I should now cancel as they are not being used. However almost 2 years ago I purchased my new car and put the deposit on one of the cards (£500 deposit on a £18k car)

    There are currently no issues with the car and I hope there won't be any in near future but it got me thinking.... When it comes to Section 75 cover does it only apply to live/active credit cards? So would it be worth keeping a credit card active for instances where a large purchase had been made?

    Thoughts and advice appreciated.

    Covered in what way after 2 years? Are you planning to find some fault with the car 2 years after you bought it and try it on with the credit card company?
