About us

GoCompare.com Group plc (GOCO) operates GoCompare, a leading UK financial services, utilities and home services comparison website; and recently acquired The Global Voucher Group Limited (trading as MyVoucherCodes), which is a digital media and affiliate marketing specialist that connects consumers with money saving offers from the world's leading brands.

GoCompare attracts approximately five million visits every month and is designed to help people save time and money. When GoCompare launched in 2006 it disrupted the insurance market as the first comparison website to display policy details rather than just listing prices. GoCompare's goal was then, and still is now, to help people make better-informed buying decisions that save them time and money.

MyVoucherCodes.co.uk is one of the UK's biggest discount voucher websites. It launched in November 2006 and provides sales, discount and voucher code information to millions of consumers across the UK every month.

GoCompare.com Group plc uses data captured from more than 20 million customers over the last 11 years to underpin its drive to continually improve its proposition and leverage its strong position.

The Group is also an investor in Souqalmal.com, the leading comparison business in the Middle East; and in promising fintech start up MortgageGym, the mortgage robo-adviser.
