LONDON, August 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
A brand new utility price comparison site launches this month as penny-pinching Brits are placed under increasing pressure by salary cuts and household bill hikes. Switch2Cheaper is designed to help consumers find the best possible deal on a range of everyday products and services including utility bills, mobile phones, personal finance, mortgages, broadband and insurance. Its launch comes as research suggests the average household income has fallen by 7% since May - heaping more misery on the one in five householders who admit to a monthly struggle to pay utility bills - and a slew of providers announce price increases for the winter months.
Although the Bank of England has only just released its inflation forecast predicting increased energy prices, five million homes have already been told to expect a £100 leap in electricity and gas bills from October by SSE, the nation's second largest energy supplier. BT has also announced that it will increase the cost of its phone calls, line rental and broadband services by as much as 6% in January while water bills have also swelled with inflation busting increases across England and Wales.
With a dedicated team of money saving experts scouring the country for the best deals on gas and electricity, car insurance and life's other essentials, Switch2Cheaper is a financial lifeline that can help cut the cost of living in budget-busting Britain. The site will offer a free membership to all visitors, providing daily information and advice on the best deals, biggest savings and most useful vouchers and coupons. It pledges to members to find the best deals and help them to switch to a lower cost package across any of its areas of expertise.
Andrew Kamau, Commercial Director said, "Although bills are increasing across the board, many big firms still advertise deals and offers which can be confusing when you simply want to lower the cost of living. Our team of money savers pick through all of the offers to find the biggest bargains. The price comparison engine also makes it easy to compare offers from any number of suppliers, whether you want to switch to a new energy company, take out a new mobile phone contract, move mortgages or find a better broadband deal."
Switch2Cheaper users need only tell the site their postcode and which utility or service they want to switch. The site will present all available deals, give an outline of what is included in the package and show the total price. It also provides step-by-step guides on switching from one provider to the other, making it easy to switch to a cheaper alternative.
