Savvy students can claim back TV licence refund

Students heading off on their summer holidays from halls and rented accommodation could be entitled to a cash-happy refund of almost £37 on their annual TV Licence.

Many students moving back home will no longer need their own TV Licence over the holidays. If there are three full calendar months before their college-time licence expires and the home they are moving to for the holidays is licensed, students are entitled to a refund for the unused quarter.

A colour TV Licence bought in October last year would mean they could receive a refund of £36.37.

To arrange a refund, or for further information, simply visit where you can complete an online form, or call TV Licensing on 0300 790 6090.
