Getting a better deal in 2018

The Coalition Government will continue to act in 2018 to put further downward pressure on the cost of living for Australians including empowering consumers to get better deals. I encourage residents in Ryan to take advantage of the tools now available to help you achieve real savings.

Consumers can save as much as $1,000 by switching retailers. However, they are often forced to choose between hundreds of deals which can be hard to compare. The Australian Energy Retailer’s (AER) online price comparison tool www.energymadeeasy.gov.au helps make the energy comparison process easier to understand. Households can also call their energy retailer direct to ask for a better deal. 

A number of fuel price websites and apps have been introduced which provide greater transparency in the petrol market. These include MotorMouth and FuelCheck, and apps from the NRMA, 7-Eleven, and GasBuddy. These join existing apps, such as those from Woolworths and United.

By using these websites and apps, consumers can shop around to ensure that they are not paying more than they need to.
