Traditional PAYG or Smart PAYG+ – what’s the difference?

The clue is in the name – one is ‘smarter’ than the other. Smart PAYG+ gives you the freedom to top up anywhere with the Boost Power app

Traditional PAYG is the plan for traditional meters, while Smart PAYG+ is the plan for smart meters.

Lots of things are the same across both like:

  • Award-winning service from our Bristol-based team.

  • The best variable rate possible.

  • 50% renewable* electricity at no extra cost.

  • No contract, so you can leave at anytime.

  • Emergency credit so you never lose power.

Now check out our plans in detail...

Boost Smart PAYG+

This is the plan for smart meters – and you get one for free.

You can top up anytime, anywhere:

  • Online through My Boost.

  • With the Boost Energy app.

  • By text message.

  • With your smart payment card at any PayPoint shop.

It’s extra smart as you:

  • Can check your credit on the go.

  • Get text or email alerts when you’re running low.

  • Set auto-top ups and rolling top-ups, so you never forget to top up again.

  • Have just one smart payment card for both meters.

To unlock all these awesome things, you just need a bank card, email address and smartphone.

Don’t have those things? No problem. You can still get Smart PAYG+ – but you will have to top up at a PayPoint. You’ll get a seperate card for electricity and gas, and your top-ups will go straight onto your meters. You don’t need to put them into the meter.

Boost Traditional PAYG

If you know you can’t get a smart meter, PAYG Traditional is for you. It’s the right plan for traditional meters.

You simply top up with your electricity key and gas card at one of the 29,000+ PayPoints up and down Britain. Easy.
