How to save money across Uswitch

The cost of living is going up, with energy and fuel increases along with general inflation affecting UK households. In the case of energy, there are some ways you may be able to manage rising costs, but you can't switch to make significant savings at the moment. However, there are other ways to save money across Uswitch.

How to save on your broadband

While there are currently little or no savings when it comes to your energy bill, you may be able to cut costs on your other household bills. Reviewing broadband, TV and mobile contracts with Uswitch could be a quick and easy way to make a reduction on your monthly outgoings - you could save an average of £162 per year.

While prices are going up, you could still save up to £162 on your broadband. Find out how here.

If you're mid-contract: bundle your TV with your broadband provider

If you’re currently paying separate companies for your TV and your broadband, you could save money by bundling a TV service with your broadband provider instead. Providers that offer these services will usually let you use both for a single, and often cheaper, monthly fee.

If you're ready to switch: choose the contract length that works for you

Broadband contracts range from 30 days to two years. If you’re a student or renting a property, a shorter contract might be more convenient, but could come with higher monthly fees. So make sure to pick a contract length that suits your situation but doesn’t put you out of pocket.

How to save on your mobile contract

Top tip: switch to SIM-only

If your phone contract is coming to an end and you’re happy to keep on using your phone, switching to SIM-only is a great way of cutting your costs. With data deals costing as little as £6 per month, you can save a lot of money by going SIM-only.
