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

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.

What are the different meter types?

Meters come in different shapes and sizes. There’s the prepayment meter where you pay for your energy in advance and ‘top up’ your meter. Standard meters –  the most common meter type – allow you to pay for your gas and electricity by cash, card or direct debit. Economy 7 electricity meters charge different rates for day and night usage, the night time rate will be cheaper.  

A word on smart meters. The government wants the majority of homes across the UK to have a smart meter installed. If you don’t have one already, these meters deal directly with energy suppliers, meaning there’s no need to send meter reads and your bills should be more accurate as you’ll only pay for what you use.

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.

How can I switch energy supplier?

There are lots of ways. You can visit a supplier’s website directly or give them a call. Alternatively, use a price comparison website (like Hoppy!) You’ll get the most accurate quotes if you have your most recent bill handy.

Once you choose a new tariff, your new supplier will contact your old one so you don’t have to.

What’s a fixed tariff?

Fixed tariffs have fixed price rates per kilowatt hour, and an end date. Some are short term fixed – usually for a year – and some are fixed for longer. Fixed tariffs protect homes from energy price rises.

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.

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.
