Is your energy plan ending soon?

Don't let yourself be rolled onto a pricey tariff — you can switch before your end date!

bill

If your fixed rate energy plan is due to end in 42 days or less, then you don’t need to wait until the final day to switch to your next tariff. Even if you have exit fees, you’ll be eligible to change onto your next plan free of cancellation costs within this window.

Switch now to take a load off your mind and wallet.

No-one wants life admin tasks hanging around, and if you know your fixed energy plan’s end date is looming, don’t leave it until the last day to compare and switch.

Many suppliers roll you onto their (often expensive) standard variable rate plan; for certain plans that ended in May, this could have resulted in customers seeing a £130 price hike across the year.

There are many popular fixed plans that are currently nearing their end date, and now fall within the 42 day window of switching — if one of these is yours then get switching and avoid a price increase.

Can’t remember when your plan ends?

Information on your plan, including its name and end date, should be found on your bill. Alternatively, uSwitch have a list of popular fixed plans and when they expire.

Some popular energy plans came to an end last week, and you may have already been rolled over onto your supplier’s standard tariff. But don’t worry, it’s not too late to switch.
