Want a really accurate quote?

Though you need nothing more than your address and bank details to start your switch, your quote will be more accurate if you have some details:

  • The name(s) of your current supplier(s)

  • What tariff(s) you’re on

  • How much energy you use – gas and electricity

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have this information – we can estimate, based on homes similar to yours.

Want to talk things through?

If you’d prefer to chat to a person, you don’t have to switch online. You’re very welcome to call us, too. Our friendly Bristol-based team is here Monday to Friday 8am - 8pm and Saturdays 9am - 5pm.
