Finding the right gas tariff could save you hundreds of pounds on your energy bills each year. You can compare gas deals by:

  1. 1.

    Entering your postcode: Gas prices vary depending on where you live, so use this comparison to find suppliers and tariffs that are available to you.

  2. 2.

    Picking a unit rate: You can choose a fixed rate, which is often cheaper, or a variable rate which may offer more flexibility.

  3. 3.

    Comparing annual cost: Check your current bill to see how much you pay each year, and look at tariffs that offer you the biggest saving.

You can also compare provider customer service ratings by checking the Citizens Advice website.

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.

What is paperless billing?

This is a feature of an online tariffs where your energy account is managed online or by email, including:

  • Registering your account

  • Checking your bill

  • Giving meter readings

  • Changing your details

You could save money because suppliers charge less if you manage your own account, but you need to keep an eye on your emails to make sure you stay on top of your bills.
