How much can I expect to save by using Sniip's energy comparison service?

The amount you can save varies depending on the price of your current plan vs. other choices and overall energy consumption habits. However, comparing on Sniip will help you judge whether you’re receiving the appropriate price to match your usage and budget. 

Is Sniip's energy comparison platform unbiased and independent?

Yes, Sniip Energy comparison operates as an independent platform, providing unbiased comparisons: no sponsored links or products, no third-party sites, and no fuss. We do not favour any particular provider or product, ensuring you get a transparent and fair comparison.

How long does the process of switching my energy provider take?

The switching process typically takes between two to five days for electricity, depending on the retailer. Previously, your old provider would need to take one last meter reading to close your account; however, these days, they can provide an estimated reading to expedite the process. For gas, the switching process should be complete by your next bill reading or billing period. 

Do I need to contact my current energy provider when I switch?
