To ensure that you are not paying too much money for energy, consider comparing your energy plan every six months or so.

If your fixed-contract has or is close to lapsing, then consider comparing energy rates to see if there is a better offer for you.

Otherwise, if your energy provider notifies you of a rates change to your energy plan, then you should also compare your plan to the other offers in the market to see if you can save money.

You can begin comparing energy plans by filling out a quick form that will allow us to find the best energy plans that suit your household needs.

When you have filled out the energy form, our energy experts will begin searching for the best available electricity & gas plans for you. Once we have compiled a few great options, we will call you to discuss the different plans over the phone.

If you decide to switch to a new energy plan, we will work with your chosen energy provider to switch over your energy connection.

For more information, give us a call at 1300 683 009.

Comparing your energy plan with Youcompare comes at no cost to you.

Using our services to compare energy rates and switching to a better plan is 100% free. 

There may be exit fees on your current energy bill. Be sure to check with your provider on potential exit fees before you make the switch to avoid getting caught out with fees.
