About Us

We have been helping UK home owners save money on their gas and electricity since 2003 and to date have helped more than 4m customers. We are the founding member of the Ofgem 'Confidence Code', a voluntary industry scheme run by the government for price comparison websites to ensure we abide by an agreed and aligned set of principles and practices.

As well as our own energy comparison service, we provide the energy industry with pricing data to help them monitor price movements across all UK regions, suppliers, meter types and payment methods. We also offer out our energy comparison proposition to third-parties via a white-label affiliate programme or API enabling them to use our technology to power their own switching platform.

As gas and electricity comparison specialists, we don't distract ourselves with other products or services like many other price comparison websites. We focus solely on the UK energy market to help save domestic consumers and business energy customers time and money.

In addition to the above, we also strive to provide market leading customer service by ensuring our customers' and clients' needs are met and exceeded at all times. As well as our experties, we believe this is another area that sets us apart from other price comparison sites. It was this commitment that helped us win 'Best Comparison Site' in the Personal Finance Awards.

How we do it

Our Ofgem accredited energy price comparison tool takes your current gas and electricity details and compares them against our database of energy tariffs to find you the best possible energy deal for your needs. Our database is kept up-to-date by our in-house team of pricing analysts who receive live energy pricing data directly from UK energy suppliers.

The comparison journey itself takes around 2 minutes with our systems calling upon accurate data from leading energy market systems to identify your postcode, supply region, MPAN and MPRN.

Once done, we show you a table of the best energy deals available to you which you can analyse and scrutinise using our set of filters to find the right deal for you. The application process is handled through our secure online system with applications being sent directly to your new energy supplier of choice. This process takes around 21-days from the date of your application and may be even quicker with certain suppliers. For each successful application we send, we receive a commission from the respective supplier.

We also have a team of UK-based energy experts available to take your questions by calling 020 3951 8617.

Compare. Switch. Save. Join millions of homes switching with the UK energy experts.
