- How to switch
A step-by-step guide to switching
1. Tell us your current deal and spend
2. We compare prices from all UK suppliers
3. Choose the best value deal for you and switch online - you could save in just 7 minutes ~
4. We'll send you an email to confirm the switch
5. Your details are sent to your new supplier. They will also contact your current supplier on your behalf and cancel your current supply
6. The new supplier will let you know when the switch will happen. Make sure you take a meter reading on this day so you're not billed for the same energy twice (don't worry, your new supplier will remind you to do this)
7. The switch will take between 6 and 8 weeks' time

- Reading your bill
How to get the best comparison
There are just a few pieces of information that can help ensure that you get the best possible comparison using our service. Here is a run-down of some easy-to-find information from your energy bill that can assist you when comparing suppliers:
1. Your supplier
Your current suppliers logo will appear on the first page of the bill, usually on the top left hand side.
2. Your tariff
The current tariff will be displayed on your bill, but where it appears varies from supplier to supplier. However it is usually either displayed on the first page or the summary page near the breakdown of charges.
3. Are you on an Economy 7 plan?
Economy 7 is a type of tariff that charges you two rates/prices for electricity. One day rate and one rate for 7 hours of the night. The breakdown of your bill will reflect this and show two different prices to show the different amounts charged for day and night usage.
Night time electricity usage – If you have an economy 7 plan then we need to know how much electricity you use at night. The average night time usage is 55%. If you would like to work out your exact night time usage here is the equation to use:
4. Payment method
Your bill will usually identify your payment method on the front page. For example, if you ‘pay on receipt of bill’ (every quarter or every 3 months) it will tell you how much you owe and when to pay, if paying by ‘direct debit’ it will say how much your direct debit charge will be for the period of the bill. If you don’t usually receive a bill, but instead top up using a card or a key then this means you have a prepayment meter.
5. Your usage
You can either tell us how much you spend on your gas and electricity or how much energy you use (kWh).
a. Amount you spend - The amount you spend each month or quarterly billing period will be displayed in the summary of charges on your bill, this will usually appear on the second page or last page of the bill.
b. Energy usage - The amount of gas and/or electricity you have used during the billing period will be displayed in Kilowatt hours (kWh) used on your bill breakdown. This will usually appear within the bill summary page.
c. Use our estimator if you are still having trouble locating information - Don’t panic! Our handy usage estimator can assist you with your comparison. Just simply select “I don’t know my usage” from the list of options, then on the next page fill out either the simple or detailed usage estimator with information about your house. Our systems will then calculate an estimation of the amount of usage you would typically be using in order to accurately conduct the comparison. Your estimated annual spend will be displayed on the results page.
6. Meter numbers
a. Gas Meter Number - In most cases the meter number or Meter Point Reference (MPR) number will be listed on your bill in the summary pages where charges are detailed. The number will usually be 10 characters long.
Generally we do not require your gas or electricity meter number, however on the rare occasion we do this is where to find it:
b. Electricity Meter Number - Again, as per the gas meter it will usually appear within the summary section of the bill where charges are detailed.
Still struggling - if you can’t find all the information you need to do a comparison why not call one of our energy advisers on 0800 634 5185
Other useful information on your bill
Supplier Contact Information – Customer Service telephone numbers and post addresses for your supplier are displayed on your bill. The customer service phone number will almost always be displayed on the first page of your bill, while the postal address is normally located within the small print on the summary pages.
Account/Customer Reference number – usually appears on the first page of your bill and is useful when you need to make any enquiries to your supplier.
