Benefits of switching gas and electricity suppliers

If I switch, do I need to contact my current energy supplier?

The transfer of your gas and/or electricity supply is arranged by your new supplier so if you switch you will not need to contact your current supplier. Your new supplier will contact you directly to obtain final meter readings.

Once you've requested to switch your gas or electric bill through Switchomatic, both the old and new energy supplier will write to you to inform you about the energy switching process. However, unless you decide you DO NOT want to proceed to switch your gas and electricity provider, you don't need to do anything. The process to complete the switch usually takes 4 to 6 weeks, but the only part you have to do is search for better utility tariffs in the first place!

It's quick and easy - why not switch your tariffs and start saving money on utilities today. Switchomatic provides a market-wide energy tariff comparison service, which is 100% impartial and free to use. Switchomatic only provides comparisons for utility tariffs and we do not try to cover other types of comparison such as car or travel insurance - we just stick to doing what we do best - finding you the cheapest utility bills quickly and easily!
