Are there any disadvantages with a Prepayment meter?
You will need to manage and keep your Prepayment credit topped up sufficiently. If your account has a credit balance of zero, you’ll lose your gas or electricity supply until more credit is added to the meter through your top-up card.
Prepayment charges are often slightly higher than other payment methods. You can view Prepayment tariffs and prices for your region on our product pages.
