Compare Gas Prices

Our comparison tool makes it easy to compare gas prices, choose a new deal and make the switch in seconds. When it comes to your gas bills, you’re going to be vulnerable to changes and price hikes. This is, unfortunately, part of the process. Many companies raise their prices at different times, so you need to keep your eyes on the market. If you’re dissatisfied with continuous price hikes, you need to think about changing suppliers. Switching your gas tariff is a hassle-free way to save money every month. With no disruption to your supply, simply compare gas prices, choose the best deal for you and watch your savings roll in.  We compare the leading gas suppliers to bring you the cheapest deals in your area.

What types of gas tariffs can I get?

There are several different types of gas tariffs available, including:

Fixed-Rate

A fixed-rate tariff means you’ll pay the same amount for every unit of gas until your deal runs out. Although the total amount you pay will vary depending on the number of units you use, the price you pay for each unit will remain the same.

Variable Rate

A variable-rate means the price of each unit of gas can change, depending on how the market fluctuates. Your gas bills will depend on what the rate is and how much gas you use if you select a deal with a variable rate. If prices drop, you could pay less for each unit of gas than if you were on a fixed rate but, if they increase, you could pay more.

Prepaid

A prepaid gas tariff means you pay in advance for the gas you use. Typically, people use a card, token, or key to top up a prepayment meter, although some suppliers also have online top-up facilities. The price per unit of gas can be a little more expensive on prepaid tariffs but it’s a great option if you want to manage your budget carefully.

How much can I save by switching gas tariffs?

You can save a significant amount by switching to a new gas tariff or supplier. In fact, many people save hundreds of pounds, simply by using a gas price comparison search to find the best deal. However, gas prices depend on a number of factors, such as where you live and how much gas you use. Due to this, it’s best to get an energy comparison to find out just how much you could save by using our website to change your tariff.

You don’t need much information to get your comparison search underway but it can be helpful if you have the following details to hand:

  • The name of your current supplier
  • Details of your current tariff
  • The rate you’re currently paying for gas

Should I compare gas prices to reduce my bills?

Switching your gas tariff can be the fastest and most effective way to reduce your gas bill. However, reducing your gas usage and being more energy-efficient can also help to reduce your fuel bills. When you increase your energy efficiency, you’re also helping to reduce carbon emissions, so being greener has benefits for everyone.

Can I switch gas tariffs if I’m a tenant?

Yes. If you want to continue using a prepayment meter, simply let us know when you’re looking for a new tariff and we’ll include this in our search. If you’d prefer to switch to a credit meter, we can incorporate this into your comparison search too.

Can I switch gas suppliers at any time?

The best time to change to a new gas tariff or supplier is typically when your existing deal comes to an end. However, you don’t necessarily have to wait until your current plan ends to enter into an agreement with another supplier. If you’re currently tied into a fixed rate deal and you want to leave before the contract ends, for example, you may need to pay an exit fee. Depending on the savings you could make, this could be the most cost-effective way for you to reduce your bills.
