How to compare gas plans on Mozo 

With so many residential gas providers operating in Australia it is no wonder that choosing a cheap plan can be confusing. Mozo cuts through the confusion to help you save time and money.

We’ve created an energy comparison service so that you can quickly and easily compare cheap gas plans in your area.

1. Get a recent bill handy - All we need is a few quick details like your postcode, household size and current usage and we'll be able to give you an estimate of some of the gas plans that are available in your area. If you don’t have a recent bill, we can provide you with an estimated gas quote.

2. Review results - You’ll instantly see the average price estimates for your postcode on the results screen. Mozo also publishes customer gas reviews of all providers listed on our site so that you can see what real customers are saying about their gas service before signing up.

3. Switch - Once you’ve chosen the best gas plan for you, it’s time to switch providers. You can complete your application direct from our service and once your account has been confirmed we’ll even notify your old provider. They will then do a final meter ready, issue you with your final bill. Rest assured there will be no interruption to your gas service.

How to understand gas plans 

Despite the fact that many of us use gas daily to cook, heat our homes and water, many Australians still aren’t 100% clear on how gas plans work and how our gas bills get calculated.

Similar to an electricity plan, your gas plan is made up of two charges: a fixed charge, also known as the daily supply charge and a usage charge.

The daily supply cost is the amount your gas retailer charges you to supply your home with gas on a daily basis. And because it is a fixed cost the amount does not change, regardless of how much gas your home uses. Your usage charge on the other hand is dependent on your household’s daily gas usage and is displayed as megajoules (MJ) on your bill. 

Both of these charges are combined to make up your gas plan, as well as any discounts that are available for either paying on time or having a direct debit set up. 

Choosing the right gas plan for you 

Whether it’s your first or fifth time comparing gas plans, knowing what makes a top gas plan is the trick to snatching up a great deal. While having both a low daily supply and usage charge is ideal, there are a few other features to compare, such as: 

  • Bill smoothing - Life is often unpredictable sometimes and can take a toll on your finances. Bill smoothing allows you to spread the estimated yearly cost of your gas bill over equal monthly, fortnightly or weekly installments, making the payments easier to manage. 
  • Contract type -  With the energy market changing everyday, the last thing you want is to be tied down into a contract, unable to switch if a better offer comes along or you need to move house. In this case, be sure the gas retailer you’d like to switch to does not ask customers to lock into a contract and better yet, doesn’t charge an exit fee! 
  • Applicable discounts - Many gas retailers offer discounts for paying on time or if you choose to pay your gas bill via direct debit, so if you’re looking to trim your gas bill any way you can, it’s worth looking into. 
  • Other charges - Aside from fees that may appear on your bill, such as a credit card payment processing fee, the retailer may charge a set up or connection fee.

Does Mozo compare gas plans in all Australian states?

We compare residential gas plans available in the following states and territories: Canberra, New South Wales, South Australia, South East Queensland and Victoria

The number of energy providers that are compared will depend on where your property is located as different energy providers offer their services in different areas.
For now, we do not compare gas providers in the Northern Territory, Tasmania or Western Australia.

Our database includes plans from a select range of gas providers and we do not compare every available gas plan in the market. Our service compares gas plans that are currently available for new customers from gas retailers. Your current gas plan could be cheaper than the plans that are now available.

Can I save money purchasing both gas and electricity from the same provider?

For a lot of Aussie households, it makes sense to kill two birds with one stone by opting to having your gas and electricity supplied by the same provider, which is commonly referred to as a ‘dual fuel’ plan. 

If you are thinking of signing up to a dual fuel plan, you’ll be happy to know many retailers offer specials and discounts for combining your utilities, which can help you save a few dollars. But before jumping onto a dual fuel plan, it’s still worth comparing gas and electricity separately, to ensure that you’ll be getting the best deal.

Gas comparison FAQs

Finding the cheapest gas plan and prices

To find a cheap gas plan in your area we’ll need to know the suburb or postcode where you currently live or where you will be moving to and the number of people in your household.

As we do not compare every gas plan in the market, the deals on our site may not be the cheapest available. We compare current market offers and if you are on an older plan, there is a chance that you could be on a cheaper rate than what is available now. In many instances, the longer it has been since you’ve switched plans, the more you’ll be paying, which is why we recommend that if you want to make sure you’re always on a cheap plan you compare your gas service annually.

Does the gas price estimates include discounts?

You can tell us whether you want us to include discounts in your gas cost estimates by filtering your preferences on our results page. We include discounts for paying on time and direct debits as well as pensioner concessions.

I am moving and don’t have a recent gas bill.

We can give you an estimate for the household size and your payment preferences based on the average usage in the suburb you are moving to.

Are renters able to switch gas providers? 

If you live in a regulated market, like New South Wales, Victoria or South-East Queensland and are responsible for paying the gas bill on your rental property, then you should have your choice of gas provider. Check out our full renters guide to switching for more information.

Where can I learn about saving on my gas bill and lowering my energy usage?

In addition to our gas price comparison tool, we’ve got a range of information written by our energy experts on our site from helpful gas guides to energy saving tips.

How does Mozo make money?

Mozo makes money by helping energy providers connect with customers, like you, who are looking for a great energy deal. Most importantly our service is totally free to use and it is the energy providers competing for your business that pay Mozo, not you!

Mozo shares a fee with our partner, CIMET, who helps provide this service. This fee is paid when you complete an application and switch energy providers using our service. Mozo may also earn revenue when energy providers purchase display advertising on our site or when we help them use the all the great data we’ve collected.
