Every year, billions of pounds are wasted by UK households paying more than they need to for their
gas and electricity. This happens because good deals and cheaper tariffs are normally only reserved for new customers,
which leaves those who don’t switch frequently with some very high bills.
Switching your energy bills might sound scary, but it really isn’t. There will never be any interruption to your energy supply, and you won’t get stung with any unexpected bills!
Why not see how much you could save by switching your energy bills with BillBuddy?
How much you can save depends on a number of factors, mainly based around your current energy supply. On average, BillBuddy users save over £200 when switching their gas and electric.
Finding and choosing a new energy tariff takes minutes, and we take care of everything after that step for you. The entire switching process can take up to 3 weeks as your existing supplier and your new supplier arrange a switchover date, but we’ll keep you in the loop the whole way.
Exit fees occur when you leave a fixed-term contract before it’s due to end and your supplier charges you to do so. Remember, exit fees don’t apply if you’re within 49 days before your contract end date, and you’ll always see any applicable exit fees in the Tariff Information Label before you switch.
Fixed tariffs ensure that the unit rate doesn’t change for the duration of the contract, whereas with a variable tariff the unit rates can change throughout the tariff length. There are benefits to both, and whether you picked a fixed or variable tariff is completely up to you.
"Switching to a cheaper energy tariff is so easy now, there’s really no excuse to not be doing it frequently! I’d recommend a fixed deal, as you can be confident that the rates won’t change for the duration of the tariff. There are also a huge number of green tariffs around now, so the more eco-conscious of you should keep an eye out for those."
