An 18p bill increase? Or a £225 bill increase? If your energy tariff ends this month you could be in for a shock

Energy bills are about to go up for hundreds of energy customers, as a series of tariffs come to an end.

If your tariff is one of the 37 below, you’re about to be rolled onto a standard rate and your bills are going up.

ARE YOU MISSING OUT ON A GREAT DEAL?

For example: one British Gas tariff ending this month will see your bills go up by £225.

Meanwhile, the rollover on one of Co-operative Energy's tariffs will see your bills go up by 18p – but lets remind you that a standard bill with Co-Op costs £1,058. The cheapest deal on the market costs £814.

Not to mention that it's price hike season - with British Gas, EDF, Npower, and Scottish Power all announcing they are going to start charging customers more for gas and electricity.

Our tip: Switch now! You can easily beat all these price hikes by locking in a fixed deal today. Find one here.

 

All the tariffs ending in May

Don’t panic – if your tariff is on this list, it means you were smart enough to get a fixed deal.

But now that deal is ending and you just have to be smart again and find another great energy deal.

Do I have to pay an exit fee?

You don’t have to pay an exit fee to switch if you’re in the last 42 days of your fixed deal.

So, if your tariff is ending this month, you won't face any exit fees when you switch.

That is under rules laid out by the industry regulator, Ofgem.
