Ready to compare?

Known for its simple, cheap energy tariffs and glowing customer service reviews (4.6 out of 5 stars on Trust Pilot), Avro Energy is a small supplier offering an array of energy tariffs to choose from. 

Whether you’re seeking fixed-rate, variable or prepayment options, Avro Energy is a good bet. 

Here we look into the various tariffs on offer and see how Avro Energy fares against its larger competitors. 

Cheap Avro Energy tariffs

Avro Energy offers some of the UK’s cheapest prices for energy, and there’s a good choice of tariffs to pick from. 

Its fixed-rate tariffs tend to work out the cheapest and some offer no early exit fee, meaning you can switch provider without paying to cancel your contract early.

Check out our comparison tables to see how Avro Energy’s prices compare to other providers.

Avro Energy fixed price deals and tariffs

Most of the tariffs Avro Energy offers new customers are 12 month fixed-rate tariffs.

On a fixed-rate tariff, your unit rate for electricity and gas will stay at a set price for one year from the date you sign up. 

Unit rates and standing charges are typically cheaper than those on a variable tariff, but it means you will not benefit if there are any big drops in the price of energy.

All three of Avro Energy’s current fixed-rate tariffs run for 12 months.

 The best value tariff is probably the Simple and Superfixed tariff – unit rates for electricity and standing charges are the best that the brand has to offer and you won’t be charged any exit fee should you wish to switch provider at any point during your contract.

Avro Energy variable tariff

Avro Energy’s standard tariff is the variable rate tariff that’s available to new and existing customers who don’t want to be tied into a lengthy fixed contract. This is known as the Simple Energy tariff.

Like most variable rate tariffs, the Simple Energy tariff has no exit fee, but it’s also Avro’s most expensive tariff. 

Avro Energy Economy 7 and Economy 10 tariffs

All Avro Energy tariffs are available as Economy 7 tariffs, which provide cheaper electricity at certain times during the day and are typically used by customers with electric storage heaters. 

This type of heating system collects the energy during a seven-hour period at night (when the cost of electricity is cheaper) and releases it during the day.

Off-peak hours can differ between different providers and where you live, but usually fall between 10pm and 8am. If you’ve got an Economy 7 meter, it’s a great idea to set appliances like your washing machine to run at night time, as well as charging your electrical devices like phones and laptops.

At time of writing, Avro Energy doesn’t offer Economy 10 tariffs.

Avro Energy dual fuel tariffs

All Avro Energy tariffs are dual fuel, meaning you have to get both your gas and electricity from the provider. 

This is often cheaper in the long run and makes payment easier, as you just receive one bill from one provider. 

Avro Energy tariffs for existing customers

There are many tariffs on offer from Avro Energy. In the event that you wish to change to another tariff, you can easily compare and request to switch tariffs on your online account under ‘manage my account’.

What happens if my energy supplier goes bust?

It is very rare for an energy supplier to go out of business, but it happened in 2016, with the collapse of GB Energy.

As happened then, any future collapse and its consequences would be managed by Ofgem, the energy market regulator. Thanks to Ofgem’s safety net, even if your supplier goes out of business, your gas and/or electricity supply will never be cut off or interrupted.

All UK energy suppliers are regulated by Ofgem.

In addition to guaranteeing continuity of supply, Ofgem works to move customers of a failed company to the best possible deal, with any debit/credit transferred to a new supplier that is chosen to inherit the business.
