MSE expert Martin Lewis finds way to switch people’s bills to best deals himself

After years of telling people to compare their energy bills, Martin Lewis has found a way to help Brits.

The 48-year-old launched a service which means you might never have to check if you're saving money again.

Sharing the news of the new MSE Autoswitch, the Money Saving Expert founder revealed it all in his weekly newsletter.

The system involves sharing your details and priorities – including price, service and exit penalties.

Then it will compare the whole market and find the best deals for you.

There's also a "Martin's pick" option which you can select to help you make a decision too.

In the newsletter, Martin said: "As I've learnt at my TV roadshows, when helping those who say 'comparing is difficult', the real sticking point usually turns out to be picking a winner.

"It leaves many frozen in indecision, or worried as they've been burnt before by switching to tiddler firms with dire service. They often say: 'Can you do it for me? MSE Autoswitch does that.

"I first came up with what we call the auto-compare-and-switch concept over five years ago. And after an 18 month build, by a big and brilliant team, that concept's come to fruition. I hope we've cracked it (fingers crossed)."

Once a year of using the service, it moves you to your new deal, based on your preferences with a one-click confirmation from you.

There's also an "override" button which Martin can use if something goes wrong – for example a provider goes bust or has an IT issue.

The MSE founder explained: "Many existing autoswitch tools simply switch everyone to the same tariff, or just a select few, from a limited panel of firms they've got a relationship with.

"I wasn't willing to put MSE's name on something that blunt."

It'll cost you nothing to join the service which gives you £25 dual-fuel cashback or £12.50 on single-fuel as well.

However, Martin claims that the service won't be suitable for everyone.

People doing complex switches, with EV tariffs or multiple home meters, and those who like to switch more than once a year are advised to do their own research.

To join MSE autoswitch, which is available in Britain but not in Northern Ireland, you need to be switching tariff.

It isn't available to people on pre-pay tariffs – because Martin doesn't want to move people to a provider where there isn't anywhere nearby for them to top up their credit.
