    If you go there will be trouble. If you stay it will be double.

    So why delete the question?


    My present deal with AVRO ‘ Simple&Supreme ends 9th Oct.2018 and I’m looking to change tariff and/or supplier at some point soon.

    Until a few days ago I was considering an early move to AVRO’s cheapest ‘Simple&Glory 12 months fixed tariff- no exit fees’.

    …it would have meant an annual increase of 5.97% based on my actual usage (E=5234KWh G=15700KWh) .

    However, that tariff has now been superseded by AVRO’s new cheapest tariff called Simple&Summertime;… unfortunately Simple&Summertime will mean a hefty increase of 11.7% so I’ve missed the boat big style there!

    Ideally I’d like another 12month fixed tariff with no exit fees and a quick squint at the Citizens Advice Bureau comparison WebPages shows the best 3 deals are:

    Nabuh ‘Online Tariff Rose’ ; an 8.11% increase compared to my present tariff.

    Yorkshire ‘Green Butterfly ‘;… an 8.73% increase compared to my present tariff.

    Avro ‘Simple&Summertime’;… an 11.7% increase compared to my present tariff.

    I know very little about Nabuh or Yorkshire Energy;…I’ve only been with Avro since last October and had no issues whatsoever,…that being said I’ve never raised any issues for them deal with so I have no personal knowledge of how good (or otherwise!) they are at dealing with customers problems etc.

    What to do?..do I move to another Avro tariff now?… do I stay with Avro till my present tariff ends then see what’s on offer with Avro or elsewhere?... or take my chances elsewhere sooner rather than later?...Nabuh??...Yorkshire??... A.N.Other??

    Are prices likely to increase sharply in the coming months?

    As ever, all advice gratefully received.
