Welcome to GoCompare

GoCompare was launched by a team of insurance experts in November 2006.

We’ve been based since the start in Newport, South Wales, and we were the first comparison site to focus on product features rather than just listing the prices.

Our aim was to help people make better-informed decisions when buying their insurance.

We’re here to help you make the right choices - so we’re the only comparison site with BIBA accreditation and membership for the Insurance Fraud Bureau.

How we make our money

Our services are completely free for you to use because our money comes from our providers, who pay us when we switch you to them.

It doesn’t affect how much you pay, and you won’t find it cheaper by shopping direct.

We only work with insurers and financial services organisations that we can rely on and we’ve built up a network of trusted partners.

But there are some providers you won’t find on any comparison sites, like Direct Line or Aviva. You can only get quotes from them directly.
