What is a flexible tariff?

Flexible Octopus is a variable tariff, which means the price you pay for your energy (i.e. the unit rates and standing charge) can rise and fall with wholesale energy prices.

We'll always give reasonable notice of any changes to the pricing of flexible tariffs.

You can switch tariffs at any time - just get in touch to do so.

There are no fees for switching from a flexible tariff to another tariff, and no lock-ins or exit penalties if you decide to switch away from Octopus.
