How to compare the best gas and electricity deals

If, like most people, you rarely look at the price you're paying for energy, you could be missing out on saving. There aren't any bonuses for loyalty when it comes to energy tariffs and sticking with the same supplier could be costing you money.

That's why we created an energy tariff comparison tool, to allow you to quickly and easily compare prices, making sure that you get the best energy supplier deals.

It takes less than 5 minutes to switch:

Step 1: Enter your details

Simply enter your name, postcode, and email address - we'll take it from there.

Step 2: Let Hoppy do the heavy lifting

We'll compare energy suppliers and show you the best deals

Step 3: Time to start saving

Confirm that you'd like to switch with us and we'll tell your new supplier. Just sit back, relax, and start saving.

If you have any questions or need help finding a deal, don't hesitate to call us: 020 3828 7053 (standard call charges apply).

FAQs

Should I pay by Direct Debit?

According to Ofgem, more than 50% pay their energy bills using Direct Debit. It’s quick and easy and you can spread payments equally over the length of your tariff. This means that even though you’re likely to use more energy in the winter and less in the summer, your payments will be the same. Your supplier will tell you how your DD is calculated and you’ll have regular reviews to make sure you’re not paying too little or too much.

Why do I need to give meter readings?

More meter readings mean more accurate bills as your supplier won’t estimate your usage. Your supplier will send you reminders, but you may wish to give reads monthly. Check with your supplier how they accept reads.

Where do Hoppy's energy deals come from?

Working with energyhelpline's mega-powerful comparison engine gives us detailed info on energy tariffs available across the market. Hoppy also gives access to small independent providers you can’t always find on the major comparison websites.

How are service ratings calculated?

Switching suppliers isn't only about the cheapest tariff. Many customers want to know about other important things like customer service. The service ratings in our results tables give a guide to the level of service you can expect from a supplier using an easy-to-understand star system:  

1 star = very poor 

2 stars = poor 

3 stars = average 

4 stars =good 

5 stars = excellent 

Ratings are calculated using Citizens Advice stats. They include the number and severity of customer complaints received, customer service availability and the quality of their online services. The service ratings were last updated in July 2017.

What’s a kilowatt hour?

Also known as a kWh, a kilowatt hour measures energy. You’ll see them on your bill.

How do I know prices won't go down after I switch?

Energy prices have risen steadily over the last few years, with only the odd dip. They're affected by so many different factors that it's almost impossible to predict what’s going to happen in the short-term. Trends suggest that prices will continue to rise in the long-term, so it’s important to regularly compare suppliers' tariffs and switch to save money.

How are comparisons calculated?

Our comparison calculator compares your current usage details with tariffs for all UK suppliers to see who offers the best deals. It takes into account loads of different factors, such as your energy usage, meter type, preferred payment method, where you live and whether you’re after a dual fuel or single fuel tariff. 

 If you're on a fixed tariff that's ending in the next 12 months, it takes that into account as well. And it works out your savings based on the unit rates you're currently on as well as the rates you'll be put on when your fixed tariff expires. 

 If you'd rather see a comparison based on your current fixed tariff rates only - no problem. Just choose the filter at the top of the results table that says ‘Recalculate savings using last year's spend.’ 

 For the most accurate comparison, take the usage from your bill and enter it into the kWh box. If you don't have one to hand, tell us how much you spend each month or, if you don't know that either, you can estimate based on questions such as how many bedrooms you have.

What’s a Tariff Information Label or TIL?

TILs show all the key info relating to the tariff such as name, end date, exit fees and unit rates. They’re available on your bills and annual statements.
