A brief introduction
Gocompare.com was launched by a team of insurance experts in November 2006 and it was the first comparison site to focus on displaying product features rather than just listing prices. Our aim was to help people make better-informed decisions when buying their insurance.
Who owns us?
Gocompare.com Ltd became a member of the esure group of companies on 31 March, 2015. esure launched as a brand in 2001 and added Sheilas' Wheels in 2005. It is one of the UK's largest personal lines general insurance businesses. You can find the full list of the esure group of companies here.†
Despite this ownership, we do not favour any of the esure brands or its products on any of our comparison services. Our business is based on independence and transparency and our comparisons are ordered according to price and cover: this is never compromised by our relationship with any business. You will see esure brands listed when you use our insurance comparison services just as you would on other comparison sites, but these brands will never be promoted over any other provider. The results you see will be ordered by price, based on your individual cover requirements.
How we make money
- We don't charge people for using our services and we don't add fees or commissions to the prices you compare; instead we make money by charging our partners a small fee once a sale has been made
- This fee has no impact on the price you pay and you won't find the price cheaper by going direct to the product providers' own websites
- We do not accept advertising or sponsored listings, so all our product comparisons are unbiased
Who we work with
- To ensure that our customers find the right product at the right price, we work with a range of trusted insurance providers and financial services organisations with the aim of providing you with as much choice as possible
- Gocompare.com also offers a variety of other products through our network of trusted partners. If we introduce you to one of these companies we will always tell you who they are
- Whilst we aim to provide you with the widest possible range of companies, there are some providers that you will not find on any comparison site. For example, Direct Line and Aviva do not sell their policies via comparison sites, and these can only be purchased directly
