uSwitch has a long history of helping consumers save money. When we launched in 2000, we were one of the UK's first price comparison sites, and today we are the #1 website for households switching energy suppliers.

  • We make saving money easy

    It only takes around 10 minutes to switch with uSwitch. With savings of up to £482* on offer, that's a lot of money for very little effort.

    You won't need to spend time on the phone telling your old supplier you're moving, or your new supplier that you're joining. You can simply sit back and enjoy your savings. Your new supplier will be in touch with all the details necessary after a 14 day cooling off period.

  • uSwitch isn't just for comparing

    Our name says it all — unlike our competitors, you don't just compare your energy, you can actually switch through our website or call centre.

    That means we don't send you off to third party sites to finish your switch (or start your comparison all over again). We make it easier than ever to find and switch to a great energy deal for your home.

  • We're free and informative

    uSwitch is a free service for consumers.

    Our customer care team can answer any questions about your switch and are available Mon - Fri 8am - 5.30pm — 0800 688 8557.

    A great resource is the uSwitch guides, covering many topics, including what happens after your switch. They also offer energy saving tips and our latest consumer research.

  • Accurate and up-to-date comparison results

    Accuracy is crucial for making sure you find the right deal, so we're constantly working to check that every fact, figure and piece of information we offer is absolutely accurate.

    We know that there's little more frustrating than 'hidden costs', so we do everything we can to ensure that the rates you see are the rates you get — our deals are updated as soon as we recieve the info from the supplier.

  • We're Ofgem accredited

    uSwitch voluntarily adheres to the Confidence Code, a set of guidelines set by the energy regulator. This is designed to make the switching process easy and accurate, so that consumers can trust the process and feel confident they're getting a great deal for them.

  • Exclusive deals for uSwitch customers

    Because we want consumers to get a great deal, we do all we can to get exclusive tariffs from suppliers that are only available for uSwitch customers. This way, we give you top deals you can't get anywhere else, helping you save even more money.

  • We campaign for a better market - for you

    At uSwitch we work towards a market that treats customers fairly.

    We conduct regular research into customer satisfaction with energy suppliers, and look into the impact of regulation or changes.

    You may have seen some of our energy experts fighting for energy consumers rights on BBC, ITVSky and in all the major newspapers. We provide insight on how changes in the economy, government and customer markets will impact you.
