There is good news though, using an Ofgem accredited energy comparison website (like Energylinx) will take the confusion out of comparing and switching energy suppliers.

It really does pays to shop around for your energy supplier… Research by Ofgem has shown there is annual savings of around £300 to be made by switching energy supplier. So, switching energy supplier or tariff can have a huge financial impact on your gas and electricity bills.

Will switching energy supplier cost me money?

Switching is free for all!

Absolutely not! Your new energy supplier will pay us a fee when your switch is completed but this fee is already included in the marketing budgets of the energy supplier, so you don’t pay a penny extra.

Exit fees

It is important to note that exit fees are common with Fixed Rate Tariffs if you switch early. If you are on a Fixed Rate Tariff, then you should check whether you'll incur a fee for cancelling your current energy deal before arranging a transfer to a new energy supplier.

The good news is that all energy suppliers should now allow you to leave up to 49 days ahead of your energy tariff's end date without incurring a penalty.

What is the Energy Switch Guarantee?

The Energy Switch Guarantee is a promise to provide a speedy and safe switch from one energy supplier to another. The trade body Energy UK drew up the 10-point guarantee with support from the energy regulator Ofgem and Citizens Advice.

The aim of Energy Switch Guarantee is to give customers confidence in the energy switching process. Energy suppliers, who have signed up to the Energy Switch Guarantee, promise a simple, reliable and hassle-free energy transfer.
