About cancelling my TalkTalk service

Important notice

Price Change Notification - On the 15th February 2015 some of our early termination charges will be changing. Please see Pricing Changes for further information.

If you decide you no longer wish to continue with TalkTalk or would like to find out when you can renew your contract, please refer to the below questions for more information.

How do I cancel my order?

If for any reason you change your mind, please call us on 0870 087 8038


How long do I have to cancel my order?

If you are a new customer you have up until the date the first part of your package goes live. To check your go live date, see Tracking your order.

If you are an existing customer and upgrading to TalkTalk TV, it will depend on how your TV service is being installed:

  • Engineer Installation: The date the engineer completes your TV installation.

  • Self-Installation: Either 7 working days from the day after your set top box is delivered, or the date the box is plugged in and connected to our TV service, whichever is sooner.

Please note: If you cancel beyond the dates above, early termination charges will apply.
