Don’t sign up for anything until you know the full costs; make sure you will be able to afford them. This includes sign-up costs, ongoing costs and exit costs.
This can include the following:
- mobile subscription services
- monthly loan or mortgage repayments
- mobile ‘phone contacts
- broadband/telephone package
- energy provider tariff
- booking a holiday/flight
Many services have an exit fee – such as when switching your mortgage or mobile contract to another provider – and knowing these up-front before you sign the contract should be part of your decision.
