Can I switch if I’m in debt?

Yes, however depending on how much you owe, your previous may object the switch so it’s important to mention:

  1. If you’ve been in debt for less than 28 days, your old supplier will add the debt to your final bill
  2. If you’ve been in debt for more than 28 days, your supplier won’t let you switch away until you’ve paid back the debt.
  3. If you have a prepayment meter, you can switch if you owe less than £500 for gas and £500 for electricity suppliers can offer to set up a repayment plan to help you pay back your debt over time.

You can agree to pay fixed amounts over a period of time i.e. monthly or fortnightly.

Once you’ve set up a repayment plan, and they supplier confirms that they will allow you to switch away, head over to our sign up form and we’ll look to find you a great saving!
