We don’t like it when people pay more than they should for their energy use, which is why we’ve teamed up with our partners over at U-Switch to help you find the best deal for you.
Because if you don’t switch, your energy company will do it for you, and this is likely to be bad news for your bills. The default rates that energy companies put their customers on are pretty much the worst prices available, so it’s essential to shop around if you want the best deal.
Switching should be easy, but with all the different tariff types it can be hard to keep track of what you’re signing up for. Use our handy introduction to energy tariffs for a jargon-free guide to the different tariffs around.
With over 60 energy companies operating in the UK, each offering multiple energy price plans, it can be hard to know what the best option is for you. That’s why we work with U-Switch. They do the heavy lifting and search out all the available options on the market, so you can simply sit back and use their easy comparison to find the best deal for you.
A lot of energy tariffs come with exit fees attached, which are essentially a penalty for leaving the plan early. Some energy plans come with the offer to cover any exit fees that you might have, but for others it’s all about timing. U-Switch makes it simple to see what you’d be paying to change services, but you can always read our full guide to exit fees here.
