Gocompare.com expands home insurance service

01/09/2008

Gocompare.com has expanded its home insurance service by adding five major providers to its current range of brands.

The online price comparison portal said that the new additions will mean that there are now a further eight home insurance products for users to consider.

Hayley Parsons, chief executive of Gocompare.com, said that since launching the home insurance comparison service in September 2007 the website has quadrupled the number of brands it features.

"We now have one of the most comprehensive home insurance comparison services in the UK," she claimed.

Ms Parsons added that shopping around to get the best deal on home insurance can save consumers up to £106.55 per year.

"It's essential that you don't just accept the first quote that you are given," she advised.

Fellow comparison website MoneySupermarket.com recently warned homeowners to beware of the parties their children may throw behind their backs and the damage they could cause.

The website reported that insurance claims for accidental damage in the home rose by ten per cent over the summer holidays compared with the rest of the year, according to figures released by Norwich Union.
