    I've been living at my flat for 1 year and its awesome but has a prepaid electricity meter which is expensive. But none of us have a credit history so we can't get it changed to one that is paid by debit, at least not through our current provider.

    Is there any provider where we can pay by debit without a credit check and it won't affect our credit history?

    Also is a prepaid meter ALWAYS more expensive? bc people say they are but I looked at the tariff online and it looked the same.. how much more expensive? :/

    Prepaids generally have a higher standing charge i think, have you tried applying else where? Even your student overdrafts mean there's something on your credit history.
