So long as your name is on the energy bills, you can choose to switch to a better deal for both gas and electricity.
It’s easy to compare energy providers with MoneySuperMarket – more on how to do this below. In fact, our most recent data shows you can save more than £286* a year by switching.
If you are mid-way through a fixed term energy contract, check to see if your supplier charges an exit fees for leaving. These can cost up to £30 per fuel, so it could well make sense to wait until you come to the end of the deal to make your switch.
Standard rate tariffs do not carry exit fees, however.
*51% of customers that applied to switch via MoneySuperMarket saved at least £286.50, June 2020.
