Pay as you go meters
How do I change my pay as you go meter to a credit meter?
We may be able to exchange your meter if:
- You're over 18 or somebody over 18 is willing to take responsibility for your account.
- You're not in debit on any British Gas account.
- You're not in credit by over £50 (we suggest you run your credit down as much as possible as we can't transfer large amounts to your new credit meter).
Take an up-to-date meter reading and call us on 0800 048 0303*. We'll do a credit check in your name. If you pass the credit check we can arrange for a date for your meter to be exchanged and discuss your payment options.
*Calls may be recorded and/or monitored for quality assurance and compliance purposes.
