Whilst a lot of people think about getting in better physical shape for the summer, many don’t consider how to get financially fit. Slimming your expenditure between now and the summer can leave you hundreds in the bank to help towards the holiday you deserve. For some that might mean finally checking-in to the plush hotel you’ve been dreaming of, or maybe getting a new summer wardrobe?

Whatever tickles your fancy, free time and money-saving service Onedox has got a simple, five step detox to help you get fit, by ensuring you aren’t one of the majority of people who inadvertently waste money on your household bills, rather than spending it on you and your loved ones.

So let’s get started with the detox:

# 1:
Average savings from being on the right gas and electricity tariff are £200 a year. Have you switched in the last twelve months? If you’re like most people and haven’t got round to it, you’re probably paying hundreds more than you should.
Onedox removes the hassle by automatically figuring out what’s the best tariff for you, helping you to switch and alerting you whenever you should move in future.

# 2:
Is your mobile phone contract beyond the minimum term? If it is, you are likely to pay up to three times more than you could. Either move to a SIM-only deal and keep your existing phone, or get a new handset.
Onedox can automatically let you know when your mobile contract will end, so you never overpay again.

# 3:
Check your bills are correct each month. Household bills are wrong more often than you might think, and can lead to you being overcharged in error, or undercharged and then “back-billed” in future - receiving a high bill when the provider spots their error.
Collecting and reviewing your bills can be hard and time consuming, which is why Onedox collects them all for you into one account and lets you know whenever new statements are available.

# 4:
Do you pay by direct debit and receive electronic bills where available? If you don’t, you’re likely to be charged around £50 more by each household provider. Switch to direct debit and paperless bills - it saves your suppliers money and then they charge you less.

# 5:
To make sure you’re not red-faced like an angry lobster, ensure that using your mobile whilst abroad isn’t going to cost you a fortune. Many people’s bills can double during the summer holidays due to high roaming charges, so if you’re at the end of your contract, consider moving to a roaming-friendly deal, like Three’s “Feel at Home”. Internet, calls and texts are included in your contract bundle in nineteen different countries, meaning your bills will be the same as when you’re at home.

David Sheridan, Commercial Director at Onedox, says, “As The Onedox Detox shows, one of the biggest obstacles to saving money on household bills is tracking when to switch tariff or provider. Onedox is becoming popular as it automatically monitors your bills and lets you know precisely when you need to act in order to save money, so you can save hundreds and put the money towards things like summer holidays instead”.
