Once you sign up with a new supplier you will have the 14-day cooling off period, with the flip completing as early as three days after.
As of April 2018 the average switching time after the 14 day cooling-off period was 16 days for electricity and 17 days for gas.

If you are coming to the end of your tariff, flipping times play a big part in the supplier we choose for you. We do not want you to ‘rollover’ onto a standard variable tariff and to avoid this we will make sure the supplier we pick for you will have a shorter flipping time. This will ensure that you save money by not being on a standard variable tariff.
