GloBird Energy Reviews

Of the GloBird Energy reviews across the web, most customers seem to be satisfied with this energy provider.

ProductReview customers give GloBird Energy 3.5 out of 5 stars, with a total of 260 total GloBird Energy reviews. GloBird reviews on Facebook give the energy provider 4.3 out of 5 stars.

Customers cite some of the following reasons in their positive GloBird Energy reviews:

  • Friendly and responsive customer service
  • Reduced energy bills after switching to GloBird from a previous energy provider
  • Easy and seamless account transfer

Edward from Greater Melbourne, Victoria, says in his 5-star GloBird Energy Review:

Called Globird and recieved a much better power suppy rate than my previous supplyer. The Consultant was precise and made sure I got the most cost effective plan, based on my power consumption. Clear communication and good follow up. Well done to a Australian owned and opperated power supply company.

However, some customers cite these reasons for their negative GloBird Energy reviews:

  • Sudden price hikes or higher than advertised rates
  • Difficulty calling GloBird Energy customer service

Lawyerz from Melbourne, Vic says in his 1-star GloBirdreview:

Buyer be warned, bait and switch tactics every 12 months.
They will raise your gas rates by 33% or so every 12 months while sending you a letter saying you "are on the best plan", whilst the publicly available website rates remain significantly lower than the new rates you have been given. This has now happened for the 2nd time with Globird.
As far as I'm concern, this is pretty dodgy behavior preying on you not checking / reviewing your rates after the initial sign up and is basically a bait and switch. I also assume they do this so they can appear at the top of the Victoria Energy Compare website while screwing over existing/longtime customers.
