You don't get the full picture
Energy comparison sites like iSelect, Compare the Market and Finder only compare a small portion of energy providers.
Prices vary widely
You may not be getting the "best" or "cheapest" offer available since prices for the same energy plan on these sites can vary.
Difficult to compare
The sites calculate quotes using different methodologies, making it hard to compare like for like.
The fine print
They don't properly explain the terms and conditions of moving to a new energy provider.
Savings may be lower
If you don't meet the terms and conditions of a new provider, you probably won't be saving as much as you expect.
You may be charged an exit fee by your current provider.
