What is auto switching? Auto Energy Switching is here to stay.

Automatic energy switching allows you to sign up once and never worry about overpaying for energy again. Auto switching means the whole switch process is managed automatically and continuous monthly checks are done to make sure you're on the very best deal. Each time you can save another £50 the switch will go ahead.

Meet Flipper - The UK's First Auto Switching Service.

You may have seen us mentioned on the BBC or in the Sunday Times talking about switching your energy supplier with auto switching websites or apps like Flipper. Managing your energy has changed for the better with auto-switching - which can be described as the next iteration of price comparison switching. Flipper was the first automatic energy switching service. We guarantee to save you time and money on your gas and electricity bills before getting charged our small fee. We need to charge this fee to remain independent and we don't take commission from any suppliers like other services claiming to be 'free'. This also allows us to work with more suppliers to ensure we find you the very best deal we can on the market. Giving you your precious time back and peace of mind that you’re never overpaying for your energy again.


So why switch when you can Flip?

Auto switching is different to traditional comparison sites in that we don’t present you with lists of quotes to understand and compare — we do that bit for you to find the best available deal available on the market. We then automatically switch you to that deal. Our advanced Flipper algorithms (Joules) then continues to look throughout the year for even better deals. It factors in any exit fees, and if there is a further saving to be had it will automatically flip you again and again. We don’t switch, we flip. With a few details and meter readings you could be on your way to a hassle free, money saving energy management service.


Why should I use an energy auto-switching service?

With over 80 energy suppliers in the UK it’s a hard task to find the best deal and to make sure you’re staying on the best deal. We did a study with 88 people and 96% of them couldn’t find the cheapest deal on a price comparison website.

We communicate directly with your old and new suppliers and manage your ‘flip’ from start to finish, so you won’t have to lift a finger or wait on the phone for ages to speak to the supplier. No paperwork, no hassle.

Auto switching is a pretty new and disruptive trend in the energy industry and we believe it’s here to stay - our members continue to give us great reviews, 85% of the them renew year after year, and we’ve seen around 40% of our new members join from word of mouth.


Is auto switching free?

Joining Flipper is essentially free; your annual membership fee of £30 with Flipper isn’t charged until we find you a deal that saves you at least £50/year. From 2017 - 2018, our customers saved an average of £385 per year using the Flipper service. Join the auto switching trend and start saving now.
