“Gocompare can make you smile and save you money. ”

I today saved £300 and it took me no more than 20 mins. By using Go Compare I got a quote from my previous insurer,£300 less than they were asking for my renewal.Respect to GoCompare, that is what they do, they save us money and you cannot ask for more than that. Thankyou so much, everyone who needs any type of insurance, my message is, gocompare the savings will make you smile.The £300 I saved will now go towards a holiday, thankyou so much,it is well worth taking 20 mins to save money… Read Full Review

“Grossly overestimate your current Payments”

Written on: 19/01/2015 by beepee1984 (1 review written)

Just tried to compare my Gas and Electricity Bill - great news based on their estimates I can save £219, adding me to their 51% that can save over £215. On actually adding up my bills I find that they have got the estimate wrong by £209 meaning I could only get a saving of £10 and that is if I agree to fix rates just as the energy costs are expecting to fall… Read Full Review

“Tired of inaccurate quotes”

Written on: 12/01/2015 by Hurleyqw385 (1 review written)

Anyone else getting tired of these comparison websites showing inaccurate quotes? Have been trying to renew my car insurance and virtually every single quote is inaccurate mainly due to the fact that even though you specifically ask for a quote INCLUDING legal cover, courtesy car and windscreen repair the quotes you get back claim to have these included but try and buy the policy and you have to add them all in at additional premium. Go compare - if you are ACTUALLY a comparison website why… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/12/2014 by VincentDonovan (1 review written)

I was tired of brokers ripping me off and a friend recommended that i gave Gocompare a chance. I couldn't believe how easy it was and i saved a fortune. Would definitely recommend friends to use the site. Hope i never find out how hard it is to make a claim as I'd prefer to deal with people either in person or on the phone but thats how these sites can offer such good deals… Read Full Review

“Home insurance - quids in!”

Written on: 08/08/2014 by 888David (1 review written)

My previous insurance went up (again!) by quite a lump, despite no claims. Go Compare found me 3 quotes significantly cheaper (same cover). I'm the sort who prefers to "stay loyal" (makes life easier) so put these lower quotes to my existing insurer but they couldn't (or wouldn't) come near, so I switched. Saved £200. Result! Note - by the nature of it being a rather "generic" search, it's important you check the quotes in detail to satisfy yourself; but it still saved me a lot of hassle… Read Full Review

I decided to change from my previous insurance company to Swinton and although it was a lot cheaper, I then moved and my insurance for changed again in price, to the original insurance price before I moved to Swinton. The morale of the story "Is better the devil you know than the one you don't"… Read Full Review

Very disappointed as a few of the quotes were better than my renewal quote so I cancled my renewal and then went to buy one of the quotes from go compare only to find that when you proceed the price goes up, I rang two insurance companies which had the best quotes and asked why the price had gone up and was told that comparison sites only give basic price without added extras, I then said that every thing on my quote was what I needed and I didn't need extras and was told comparison site's… Read Full Review

Hi Sutherlandak331,

Sorry to hear about your bad experience online. No one ever seems to give the right answers to anyone who asks, so I'll shed a little light on comparison sites for you.

If you look into the Terms and Conditions, it will clearly state somewhere "quotations are based on assumptions". Which means that in theory, whatever you put into the fields provided, is redundant.

Take No Claims Bonus/Discount for example, if you were to go onto any insurance companies website, comparison website or generally online, the assumption is "if you've held your license for 10+ years, you have maximum No Claims Bonus".

If you want to find the cheapest price possible, then use your phone and do quotations the old way, because comparison websites will always include a discount. For companies underwritten by Aviva, they'll be GEN codes. AXA, they'll be SECONDCAR, Zurich, IW and finally, Markerstudy with the biggest one "Preferred". These may not mean much to you as a customer buying the policy, but to me, having worked in the industry and currently still working as a Senior Sales Consultant in an internet based sales team, I know that each of these discounts HAVE to be removed.

These discounts range from 30%-92% depending on the underwriter and factors. If the price is on the screen, it means nothing, until a representative from that company tells you the price and asks for the business, it means nothing.

Comparison websites are ALWAYS based on assumptions and will never provide you with an accurate rate. If you want that, I'll repeat, use your phone and not the computer.

I would like to say the same as above the quotes I received had all the ticks I wanted for the cover I wanted. Just to find when directed to the insurance web site .Said cover from even though as I have said on go compare all the add ons were ticked.And another said sorry you can't do this online please phone us yeah right premium number. I have no complaints about gocompare but lets have what we are asking for straight up.Oh so I went further down the quotes I got what I wanted and saved £150 shop around don't take your quotes as the last one.
