Switch energy tariff now to avoid price hike!

You seriously need to switch energy provider now to avoid paying an extra £262-a-year as firms raise tariffs at the end of July.

Loyal customers should be looked after, but in the energy market they're punished as companies hike prices relentlessly.

If you don't switch, you run the risk of being one of the 413,000 households paying through the nose for the same energy service as a total of 227 fixed energy tariffs come to an end in July, August and September.

If nobody switched, it would cost customers a collective £109m-a-year. Shocking.

When your offer is up, energy companies automatically switch you to a default tariff, which is usually much pricier.

This is called a standard variable tariff (SVT) and if you're on one, you're almost certainly paying over the odds.

Comparethemarket.com estimates that almost 200,000 people have deals ending in September alone.

How much your energy bills rise by will depend on who your energy supplier is, but generally speaking you can expect them to go up by over £250 annually.

Customers with deals ending in September, for example, will see an average rise of £269 per household per year.
