About Us

About UsThe Switching Helpline was created specifically to overcome the many and various obstacles preventing a large proportion of the UK’s households from switching to the cheapest energy tariffs available.

We’re at the frontline in the battle against rising energy costs

Reviewing supply, comparing prices and switching supplier is vital to all UK households in the battle against rising fuel costs. Worryingly though, only a small proportion of the UK population are on the cheapest deals available to them. It’s a remarkable fact, given that switching supplier requires a sacrifice of only a few minutes’ time and is a completely seamless process, requiring no involvement from the customer once the application has been made.

Have you been left baffled by the other comparison services?

A number of the existing utility comparison services create almost as many questions as answers for those looking to compare. Many consumers may have had a bad experience with a doorstep salesman, whilst others simply worry about perceived disruption to supply or are uncomfortable transacting online. This is in addition to the wide variety of tariff options now available, uncertainties over whether it’s the right time to switch as well as mis-conceptions and understandable confusion around the process and comparison market in general.

We’re just a short (free) phone call away

It’s clear many consumers are looking for re-assurance and advice. The Switching Helpline offer and promote a freephone number and a free call back service to all UK households. We’re looking to dispel myths, and promote the benefits of switching supplier. It’s absolutely free, we’ll answer your questions directly, guide you through the process and do all the legwork for you with your application.

In also offering an online service for those totally comfortable with the process, and a Consumer Focus accredited calculator, we are effectively a one-stop shop for energy price comparison.

We’re more than just a website – we’re in your community!

That’s not all. We are also running The Big Switch 2010 campaign, which aims to pro-actively engage with consumers through a series of workshops, and demonstrations as well as a number of on-street agents promoting the good work of the helpline.
