    My gas card has been stolen: what should I do?

    • Answer
    • If you top up at a PayPoint
      You can collect a new gas card from your nearest PayPoint store, simply by telling the shopkeeper that you need a new card.

      Before putting credit on the card, you need to activate it by inserting it in your meter for 1 minute.

      Find a PayPoint near you

      We can post a new card out to you within 3 working days. Call us on 
      0800 048 0303*. We're open 24 hours a day

      If there was any money on the card when it was stolen the we can refund this for you. Simply call us on the above number and tell the agent how much was lost. They will perform some checks on this and then issue the refund as a credit to your meter. If the money lost was a large amount then they may ask for you to send in a receipt or the crime reference report first.
