I want to leave Boost but can’t get through to the call centre as it is nearly 4 hours long! It is so expensive, I have a smart metre and Boost have been taking £20.00 out of my account every 2/3 days. I just can’t afford it. My heating is on such a low setting, it’s barely warm. I just want to talk to someone it’s so frustrating!

Hi @Kerry Ludlow and @Tiptopt

We've been extremely busy in the last couple of weeks after inheriting Economy Energy's customers as they've ceased trading. We're working really hard to bring the queues down and get back to everyone as soon as we can. We're sorry for any inconvenience caused by this.

If you'd like to switch away from Boost, you don't need to contact us directly. You'd just need to sign up with the supplier you'd like to move to, and they'll get in touch with us to let us know.

Thanks,
Nancy

Totally agree!! Boost are a rip off. You dont need to call them to cancel just sign up with a new supplier and they will sort it out for you, im paying £180 a month with boost which is £40 a month more than with my old supplier, iv been with them for three months and iv just swapped supplier today online. Get as far away from Boost as you possibly can.

Did you have to pay a exit fee

Just want to check (for 2021) that I don’t need to inform Boost that I intend on switching and all I have to do is contact the new supplier, as the new supplier has said I need to notify my current supplier.

As the Boost phone lines are asking for emergency calls only and my email address is not recognised when I email customer services (I was a Economy Energy customer and have never registered an email address with Boost) I don’t know how to get answers!!!

 

Many thanks,

Gareth

That’s right, @GDA,

As a Boost customer you're free to switch at any point without any exit fees or terms. All you need to do is pick a new supplier and they'll do the rest.
