Save up to £300 a year – just by switching your gas and electricity provider

It’s quick and easy

With Ofgem estimating that more than half of the population have never switched supplier, it is clear that many consumers will be paying far too much for their gas and electricity. If you are one of those who have never switched it is not too late, and the process is much more simple and quick than you may realise.

When did you last switch your supplier? If it was more than a year ago, chances are you’re paying a lot more than you should be.

Who are energyhelpline?

energyhelpline is an independent price comparison service that provides customers with fast, free and friendly advice on their gas and electricity. They compare all major suppliers in the UK to help you find your best deal, and take the hassle out of switching.

What details do I need to compare energy suppliers?

Comparing energy suppliers is simple, all you will need are a few key bits of information about yourself and your current supplier, tariff and how much you currently use. All of which can be found on a recent bill.

Am I really going to save money?

Yes - A typical household can save £200-£300 on their annual bill with some households saving up to £616*.

How long will my switch take?

Switching is easier than ever. Switching typically takes 3-4 weeks from start to finish. This includes a two-week cooling off period in case you change your mind.

Do I need to contact my current supplier?

No, you do not need to contact your current supplier. Your new supplier will liaise directly with your old supplier and agree on a switch date.

If I rent, can I switch?

Many people believe that because they live in rented accommodation, they are unable to change who supplies the property. In some cases this might be right. For example, if bills are already included in your rent.

But as long as you are the bill payer for energy, then you are free to decide who charges you for it.

Which tariff is best for me?

We recommend a fixed tariff, as this offers protection against price rises giving you peace of mind that the rate you pay for your energy doesn’t increase for a fixed period of time.

I have a prepayment meter, is it worth switching?

Yes – Although prepayment tariffs are typically more expensive, prepayment customers can still save a significant amount on their bill.
