Product Protection Insurance terms and conditions and additional information

Product Protection Insurance is issued by Pohjola Insurance Ltd.

Under the Consumer Protection Act, you can apply for a refund from your credit card company if a retailer breaches a sales contract for a purchase made with credit. Breach of contract occurs if a product or service you bought with credit is defective or lost in transport, or the company goes bankrupt and you never receive the product.

You can also apply for a refund if your airline or tour operator goes bankrupt or cancels your journey without paying you back.

Start by trying to handle the matter with the company that sold the product or service — this will help you to demonstrate breach of contract. File a complaint with the credit card company as soon as it becomes clear that the seller is in breach of contract.
