How should you pay?

You can pay for your gas in four different ways:

  • Direct debit payments are taken from your bank account monthly

  • Quarterly payments can be made by cheque, cash or direct debit every three months

  • Payment cards let you pay by debit or credit card in a PayPoint shop or Post Office

  • Prepayment meters let you pay as you go but are often more expensive

Direct debit is usually the cheapest way to pay for your gas, but this ties you into a monthly payment plan with your energy supplier.

If you are concerned about keeping up with your energy payments, read our guide on how to handle problems with your gas and electricity.
