Finding the right energy tariff for you
We understand that our customers have different priorities when comparing energy suppliers. For many, getting a cheaper deal is a top priority but others may also be interested in green energy, loyalty schemes, different payment methods or the customer satisfaction ratings of energy suppliers. Whatever your gas and electricity preferences, Which? Switch will recommend the best energy tariff for you.
So far more than 40,000 households have used Which? Switch to get a better deal on their gas and electricity bills.
We display all available tariff information for energy suppliers both large and small, even if we don’t currently have a commercial switching agreement with them. This means that you’ll always be able to find the best deal on Which? Switch. We also take into consideration hidden charges and exit fees.
We’re on hand to help during the switching process and to offer advice on post-switch complaints if you have any problems. Contact our switching helpline on 01992 822 827 (Monday-Friday, 9am-6pm) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Supporting Which? Affordable Energy Campaign
Which? Switch is not-for-profit. We look to receive a commission from energy companies in order to cover our costs and invest in campaigns to fight energy issues on behalf of consumers.
At the moment Which? is campaigning to make switching energy suppliers and comparing tariffs easier for everyone. We want a better deal for energy consumers, including:
- Tariffs that are in a simple, standard format across all suppliers so that customers can compare and find the cheapest deal easily.
- An end to the complex tiered pricing of tariffs which unfairly penalises people who use less energy.
