Switching energy with Switcher.ie
Did you know that the average energy customer in Ireland can save up to €359 by switching from typical standard tariffs to the cheapest deals on the market?
Switching energy is quick and easy. All you need to do is carry out an energy comparison using Switcher.ie’s free, impartial comparison tool and choose your preferred deal. The full switch will then be managed by Switcher.ie and your new supplier at no extra cost to you - and all suppliers use the same pipes and cables to provide energy to your home, so you don’t need to worry about a loss in service.
And you can be confident you’re getting the best deal, because Switcher.ie is accredited by the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU), which means the CRU endorses Switcher.ie as an independent, impartial and accurate source of information for consumers to use when searching for energy deals.
Switching broadband, TV and phone with Switcher.ie
First of all, take a look at our broadband deal checker. You can choose between standalone broadband plans, or bundle up your broadband with your TV or phone plan, or both!
Once you choose the deal you want, we’ll handle all of the set-up details for your new plan in conjunction with your new supplier, which makes everything really straightforward.
In order to make sure you don’t get charged after you switch, you’ll need to make sure you give your current broadband provider the specified notice to cancel your current contract. And - once your final bill is paid - you should cancel any direct debits you have with this provider, too.
Switching to a SIM-only mobile plan
If you’re happy with your mobile phone and are at the end of your contract, you could save hundreds by switching to a SIM-only mobile plan.
You can easily compare deals with our SIM-only bill pay comparisons. Once you’ve chosen your preferred deal, simply click on the link and you’ll be taken directly to your new provider’s site to sign up.
If there’s no website link, you’ll be given a dedicated phone number which will connect you with the team who’ll manage your switch.
