Standard Letter to Terminate your Mobile Plan and Avoid Tacit Renewal.

Are you coming to the end of your mobile plan and want to cancel it?

Or do you want to buy a new cheaper phone from a competitor?

The problem is that you are committed to an operator.

Here is a little help to write your letter in order to avoid tacit renewal, that is to say an automatic renewal of subscription.

Tacit renewal, what exactly is it?

Tacit renewal allows your operator to renew your contract, i.e. to renew it automatically. No writing or even phone call is necessary to warn you.

When your subscription comes to an end, it is thus renewed for the same period as before.

According to article L. 121-84-3 of the Consumer Code in France, your access provider must indicate your remaining commitment period and notify you between three and one month before the end of your contract, your right of termination (even in small print on your contract). This allows you to avoid re-engaging unintentionally.

If this clause is not respected, according to article L. 136-1 of the Code of consumption , you would have the right to end the contract at any time and without additional costs.

My standard letter to avoid tacit renewal

As with my other standard letter for early termination, I would advise you to write down your contact details, telephone number and contract number at the top left of your letter, as well as the contact details for your operator's termination service at the top right. .

Here is my sample letter to cancel your mobile plan before tacit renewal :

Place............, on................

Object :Termination of my Mobile plan before tacit renewal.

Registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt.
