  • Compare your annual saving: You can filter your options based on the highest average yearly saving, or by the lowest average yearly cost.

Can you fix your dual fuel tariff?

Yes, you can choose a fixed rate tariff which guarantees the price of your gas and electricity will not change during your contract.

This ties you into the contract for a set period of time, and you may be charged an exit fee of up to 30 per fuel if you decide to leave your contract early.

Alternatively, you can opt for a variable rate which gives you more flexibility to switch suppliers but is usually more expensive.

What if you have a prepayment meter?

You can still get a dual fuel tariff if you have a prepayment meter, but you may need to use our prepayment meter comparison to find the best deal.

You benefit from the discounts and convenience of having both your gas and electricity with one supplier, but you will need to pay for your energy before you use it.
