Switching from a fixed-rate tariff before it ends: early cancellation costs

Early termination or cancellation fees are meant to keep customers on fixed-rate plans until they are over. Most electricity and gas suppliers charge early termination or cancellation fees. However, the national energy regulator Ofgem has stopped energy suppliers from charging early termination or cancellation fees for customers to leave their fixed-rate tariff 42 to 49 days before the tariff’s end date.

Eight energy suppliers have fixed-rate tariffs with no early termination fee:
