Energy prices are falling and fixed dual fuel energy tariffs are cheaper than they were a year ago. So if your current tariff is coming to an end this month, it’s time to consider switching to a better deal.
Some of the fixed tariffs coming to an end around now are even more expensive than the same company’s standard tariff – which have traditionally been the priciest.
To help you find a better deal, below we’ve listed the energy tariffs coming to an end this month, and the cheapest alternative deals.
