Would give them minus 5 stars if I could, took over a property and the meter was in default, any other company would clear this but not budget energy, to get electric we had to clear someone else’s debt just to be able to switch the lights on. Total disgrace of a company.

Your prices have become an insult as monthly I have monitored them grow higher without any notification. Your service and greed are abhorrent. You simply can’t compete with anyone else. You will not last at this pace and I guess you intend …

Agreed to pay £180 pm direct debit but they wanted £240. They tried taking £240 anyway and I only had £180 in the bank so I told them to try again. A few months of £180 payments and they have now taken £240 without telling me and for no …

They registered my meter to the wrong address and as a result I can’t get the £40 bonus they promised me for switching. Not only that, they kept me on the phone over two hours insisting I was typing in the code incorrectly because I am …

Worst company ever.
Can’t download bills, Can’t contact them.
Saying they will only pay £400 out of the £600 government payout.
The list goes on….

Had to wait 50 minutes on my call being answered after days of trying to get through. Customer service could be better although after the wait I was sorted out quickly by the rep.

Had selected a tariff online which was a new fixed rate once mine ended . Apparently no sign of the tariff I selected. Can’t seem to get through on the phone to them they take hours to answer – and there online service to top up is a disaster.

Absolute joke of a company. The way they increased their prices so much higher than most other firms shows how little they care about customers. Since my new provider told them I’m changing, they have phoned twice every day despite me …

Left Budget after almost 2 years as a keypad customer. Prices got very high basically by them using stealth price hikes a number of times over a year resulting in a massive price increase over other suppliers. I am saving a fortune by …

Joke of a company. Astronomical prices, customer service entails sitting on the phone for an hour to get through and then the first person you speak to hanging up on you, repeatedly. I’d rather eat my own hands than ever have deal with these again.

Disaster of a Web site . Impossible to top up by phone as the code is read at 90 mph. They will not text the code anymore and have also stopped sending it by email. The code if not captured is gone and no one to answer the phone..ever day or night. Avoid avoid.

Very disappointed. Switched to this company because of their prices. Two weeks after I signed up they sent me a change to the costs up from 12.50 to 14.84. There was no mention of this when we signed up after being told how much we would be …

An online supplier, with the poorest IT of any company I’ve ever dealt with. Their web site does not allow you to enter an interim meter reading. You are given a random 6 digit PIN number to log in which you have no method of changing. They …

Dreadful customer service! Broken promises galore, join this company at your peril, can’t even let me access my own account to find out how much credit I have and when the next bill is. Whenever I ring they say they will email the log in details immediately, but it never happens, give this company a wide berth.

Budget in name, budget in nature. I don’t think I’ve ever had such a terrible experience with an energy company. Who designed the website? Family member? Student offering to do it at a discount price? Stock imagery not sized correctly, inconsistent layout, poor top-up experience. And that’s when it works!

They are only a company you pay a bill to. If you have been given a rate and it increases then they have broken their terms and are allowed to move to another company. All companies put their prices up but they are still cheaper. They send electronic bills to save on paper. What’s not to like.

3 price increases in 6 months leaving me owing £99.43 as my direct debits have not been enough to cover the increases as well as my normal bill. Website is awful, never able to get anyone by phone and now this……. Total shambles of a company. AVOID!! Will never use this company again

Steer clear, despite not having any new appliances etc in the last 6 months I’ve paid nearly £600 in electric since January as they say my £40 per month DD is not enough. We live in a 3 bed terrace house and my electric use has not changed in the last 6-7 years. DO NOT GET ELECTRIC FROM THESE PEOPLE

Cheaters, promised to give you £100 bonus credit, but but once checked their t&c, Unit price is 1p more than my existing provider, also there is standing charge 11p per Day, it’s 12 months contract with exit fee £40. So after 12 months it will cost me more than their bonus
