Our belief is that the best scenario is to get a good deal from your existing provider, with switching being a last resort if you aren’t being treated fairly. Staying and saving means that you don’t have to deal with headaches like closing one provider account and opening another, handling final balances and potential interruptions to service.
Price comparison services also work by receiving a fee from suppliers instead of from customers, where they introduce new business to those suppliers. That means it is in their commercial interests to promote switching. However, the best solution is usually to stay with your existing provider and get a better deal.
