Approaching the end of your Age UK tariff?
E.ON will contact you approximately 45 days before the end of your tariff to inform you of your options. When your fixed tariff ends, you can choose to move to another tariff. This can either be with E.ON or an alternative supplier. If at this point you take no action, you will go on to E.ON’s standard variable tariff, the E.ON Energy Plan.
If you have a query about your tariff, please call E.ON Customer Services on 0800 917 3353 (Monday-Friday 8am-8pm; Saturday 8am-6pm)

3. Here is a checklist to help you make your own comparison:
• Your usage
Your quote will be based on the amount of energy you use each year. Make sure you compare using the same amount of kWhs otherwise you won’t be able to compare accurately.
• Your personal projection
You should see this on a recent communication from your current supplier and you can use this to compare prices. Suppliers offer different discounts depending on for example, how you pay, if you stop having paper bills or if you take both electricity and gas. Try to make a like for like comparison.
• Could you pay less with your current supplier?
For example by changing tariff or payment method.
• Other benefits
Does your current supplier give you any other benefits like vouchers, rewards or boiler maintenance?
