NC Company Overview
Gocompare is a price comparison website for the UK market. Gocompare originally focused mainly on insurance, offering users the opportunity to compare, select and buy the best insurance policies for their needs, including insurance in a wide range of categories from essentials like home insurance and car insurance to more niche insurance offerings like taxi insurance, student insurance, and pet insurance. As the popularity of the service grew, it has expanded into other verticals, and now also offers comparisons on many other things, such as energy providers, mobile phone contracts, loans, savings accounts, travel, and travel extras like airport parking and car hire. Gocompare has very high standards about which providers it will partner with and only features offerings from highly trusted insurers, lenders and other service providers.
Gocompare, based in Newport, Wales, UK was founded in 2006. The brand is very well known in the UK market, in part because of its TV advertising campaigns, which feature a tenor opera singer called ‘Gio Compario’ appearing in different places and surprising people by singing the company’s jingle.
As of May 2019, Gocompare has a 4.6-star rating from over 18k consumer reviews on leading UK review sites. In 2016, it won the valuable UK Investors in People accolade, and it has also been a winner at the Insurance Fraud Awards.
