... There you go, Poppy, no sooner said than done! Sentinel Card Protection Service is something I’ve been using for years now.

Wallet Goes Walkies - AGAIN

AdvantagesOne number access to "stop" the lot

DisadvantagesNeed to keep telephone number safe elsewhere

"...found the missing cards again. Sentinel still remind you to get a loss report from the police to make sure your indemnity insurance remains intact. If they did this for you, Portsmouth’s* Police station would need a separate duty sergeant to handle Sentinel work alone. *Yes, that’s where they are, not that it matters when you’re up to your arse in alligators in the Everglades. I’ve not tried it, but I assume that if you inform them that your ..." Read review

Sentinel - protects your cards and more

Advantagesone phone number to cancel everything

Disadvantageshave to remember to add new cards

"Sentinel Card Protection does exactly what is says on the tin. It protects your cards. It also protects your wallet, passport, driving licence and more. Just one phone call is all it takes for peace of mind once your cards have been lost/stolen. I took this out before we went to Cyprus as the thought of being abroad and losing our cards and passports etc, was not worth thinking about. Sentinel provide sheets of paper, which you record all card ..." Read review

Have a credit/debit/store card? Read this

AdvantagesCard protection, cheap, range of services

DisadvantagesNone

"Sentinal Card Services is something I would not consider being without. It wasn't until I subscribed to the service that I realised how much it offered. Basically, its a card protection package. You provide them with the numbers of all your credit / debit / store cards and if they are ever lost or stolen, you just make one phone call to Sentinal and they contact all your card holders on your behalf. Lets face it, if your cards were lost would you ..." Read review

No Assistance when needed

AdvantagesShould provide a single point of contact in a stressful situation

DisadvantagesEnds up costing time and money increasing stress when no-one answers the phone

"I have used Sentinel to provide cover for many years confident that if I should lose my cards in any way then Sentinel would remove some of the hassle. The reality was that when I lost my wallet sk-ing in Canada I was unable to get past the Sentinel answerphone! I then made contact with my bank who were also unable to obtain an answer from Sentinel (It was the early hours in UK) although they did at least cancel my bank card. On my return Sentinel ..."

Sentinel. Terrible cancellation procedure

Advantagesoverwritten by disadvantages

DisadvantagesYou can not get out

"...sign. I have been with Sentinel for years and when I decided I no longer wanted their services I wrote a letter to cancel them and they claim not to have received it. I have also contacted them by phone. But they do not offer Reference numbers for the phone calls so you have no way of proving you have called them to cancel the services. Terrible. it´s a catch 22 situation. They have just told me that because I have been charged again 2 weeks ..." Read review
