Which is the credit report that's easy to cancel the membership with?

Options
There's a few where you can sign up for free & get a report, but if memory serves, there's one that's easy to cancel membership & there's another that's a nightmare.

Which one is which, so i don't sign up to the nightmare?

    I agree with woodbine. Sign up with Noddle if you must but more importantly get your £2 statutory reports from Experian and Equifax.

    If you sign up to Equifax or Experian its very easy to cancel just phone them up a couple of days before your free period is over and they cancel it there and then and also send you a confirmation email.

    The answer you are looking for is Equifax.

    I don't want to say too much about the other company, but search the worldwide web for reviews of their service, you'll be in for a fright. :eek:

    But don't agree to any other "free" offer they try to get you to agree to when you phone to cancel!
    . . .I did not speak out

    Then they came for me
    And there was no one left
    To speak out for me..

    Both Equifax and Experian is easy to cancel. Given Experian is the most widely used CRA it is the one that makes most sense to review

    I would ask yourself what you get from a one month trial that you don't get from the statutory report. Save £2 yes but I'd pay £2 to not have to speak them when they beg you to continue when you cancel.
