European Consumer Centre

Do you live in Spain and you want to submit a claim related to a commercial enterprise in another EU member state, Norway or Iceland? We can help you.

The European Consumer Center in Spain can help you if you have previously claimed the company in writing, you have not used the Court procedure, and it is not a case of fraud. And when it is not possible to reach an amicable settlement, advice will be given on other alternatives or legal actions such as the European Small Claims Procedure.

  • If your request or claim is against a Spanish company, check here the different out-of-court procedures and court procedures you may use.
  • If your habitual residence is in another EU Member State, Norway or Iceland and the claim is against a company registered in Spain, you should contact the European Center in your country.
  • If your inquiry is related to cancellations, delays, denied boarding or downgrading in air transport, you should contact AESA.
  • If your inquiry is related to entities supervised by Banco de España, you should contact Banco de España.
  • If your query is related to road transportation or auxiliary and complementary activities of road transportation (including car rental), you should contact the Juntas Arbitrales del Transporte.
