Live chat? Although maybe not much good if you don't have internet access, and relying on expensive mobile data rates

Live chat dosent exist, its just some robot. 

 

I emailed them yesterday and had a response within 2 hours. They used to be quite active here and Twitter, but lately not so much.

Must be a coincidence, got a reply 5 mins after this post.

Looks like my line has been damaged.

I found response times got far worse over the time we were with them. This, and a lack of a call centre to actually talk to someone when needed (eg like you’re facing now), were the reasons for us leaving BP. Don’t regret the shift at all...

I emailed them a question on the 18th of May and never got a reply but I’m not surprised

Pretty sure you can tell the robot you want to talk to a human and they will actually put you through to one. At least that was how it was when I was with them last year...
