These figures are based on a medium-use house just outside of London.
As you can see from the table above. You can choose from either a fixed rate tariff or a variable rate deal. The type of plan you choose will depend on your circumstances and your preferences.

Why choose a variable rate deal?

When you look at the table above, you’ll see that the cheapest unit rate for electricity is available on the variable tariff. This can make it seem like this is the most affordable option.
However, the amount you pay per unit of gas and electricity can vary when you choose a variable plan. This is because the price you pay is linked to the wholesale price of energy in the UK. If wholesale prices go up, you’ll pay more for your energy supply. If they go down, your monthly payments should drop too.
Although you won’t know exactly how much your gas and electricity will cost from month to month, opting for a variable rate deal does give you the freedom to switch whenever you want. So if you think your energy payments are too high, you can call our Switch Plan and move to a different tariff to find a cheaper deal.

Pros and cons of a variable rate tariff:

  • No contract
  • No exit fees
  • Freedom to switch at any time

  • Prices can go up at any time
  • Variable tariffs can make it harder to budget
  • Often more expensive than fixed rate tariffs

Why choose a fixed rate tariff?

Fixed rate tariffs offer a little more security than variable rate deals. When you sign up to a fixed rate plan, you’ll agree a price per kWh for your gas and electricity. This price will stay the same for the duration of your contract, no matter what happens in the wholesale energy market.
Because the price you pay per kWh for gas and electricity won’t change during your fixed period, it can be easier to budget for this type of tariff. However, it’s important to note that, while the amount you pay for a unit of energy won’t change, your total bill can go up and down. This is because your bill is based on your consumption, so the more energy you use, the more you’ll pay.
The main downside of a fixed rate tariff is that you’re tied to your supplier for a set period of time. If you find a better deal during this time and decide to switch, you’ll have to pay an exit fee before you can leave. At the moment, Outfox the Market charges an exit fee of £50 per fuel on a selection of its fixed rate deals.
The pros and cons of a fixed rate tariff are:

  • The amount you pay per kWh for your gas and electricity will stay the same throughout your deal
  • It can be easier to budget on a fixed rate tariff
  • Fixed rate deals are often the most affordable available

  • You’re tied to your supplier for a set period of time
  • Exit fees can make it expensive to switch
  • Not suitable if you plan to move house before your fixed period expires

If you’re still not sure which option is right for you, call our Switch Plan to find out about all the fixed rate and variable rate tariffs on the market.
