TV license refund for students moving home over summer
TV Licensing has launched a refund campaign for students moving home for the summer months, which will allow them to claim back up to £36.37, the cost of the three month summer break.
To be eligible, students need to have a TV licence, be leaving their halls or rented accommodation and moving back home to a licensed address.
Phil Davis, chair of the National Association of Student Money Advisers, said: “The summer is a great opportunity for students to repair their bank balances, and it’s important they use every opportunity to do so. Getting a refund on the unused three months of a TV licence is a really easy step to take.
“It’s important students buy a TV licence at the earliest opportunity when starting university and take advantage of the flexible payment options available to them. Most of all, it’s vital students avoid fines for not holding a TV Licence.”
Students are being reminded that a TV license is needed to watch, record or stream programmes at the same as shown on live TV. This is the case whether you use a TV, laptop, games console, tablet, mobile phone, or any other device. The penalty for not having a valid license is prosecution and a fine of up to £1,000.
