In NSW and South East QLD you should be able to change energy providers as many times as you like without worrying about a penalty.
Unlike mobile phone plans, you are not locked-in to a term contract with penalties due if you cancel or switch before the end of the term.
There are only a handful of deals that have exit fees these days. Usually this is because the retailer has agreed to keep prices fixed for a period of time.
How our app helps you
When we upload your bill, we check what plan you are on and will let you know if there are restrictions or exit fees due on changing provider.
When looking at changing to a new deal, we highlight if a deal has an exit fee attached. You can quickly filter these deals out if you don't want to see plans with an associated exit fee.
