There is a central European ‘portal’ which can redirect a complaint to the appropriate industry Ombudsman (e.g. Financial Ombudsman Service). This is aimed at helping EU residents who purchased a product online from a provider based in another EU country. It is always best to contact the product provider first but for further information go to http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/
