I was reading the news on BBC red button this morning and it looks like another four of the small energy providers are going to cease trading this week, see here. My current deal is coming to a end at the end of October and all I am seeing is massive price rises, gas at double the price or higher than what I am currently paying. Just in time for winter!!
I've gone for a 3 year lock in with no fees. So if things go down I can switch again.
Plus get a chunk of cashback for this one.
Couldn't risk staying on variable any longer
