    GoCompare polled thousands of its customers, and took into account customer reviews, claims processes, complaints feedback and industry data. The judging process began way back in June, with a shortlist compiled for the panel of experts to judge.

    The panel included Grace Gausden, Senior Reporter, This is Money; Vicky Shaw, Personal Finance Correspondent, PA Media; Brian Brown, Consumer Finance Expert, Defaqto and Ian Rowlands, VP of Partnerships, GoCompare.

    There were a few categories: car, home and van insurance. The ‘product of the year’ category is there to highlight insurers with the right product at the right price.

    ‘As a comparison site, we have always seen ourselves as a consumer champion in the insurance sector through making policy information clearer and more accessible,’ says Lee Griffin, CEO and Founder at GoCompare. ‘We are delighted to announce the winners of the first GoCompare Insurance Awards.’

    Judge Brian Brown, a Consumer Finance Expert at Defaqto, adds that the new awards have seen a mixture of established names and newcomers winning. ‘It has been really interesting to work with such a strong panel of judges on these inaugural awards. Congratulations to the winners, they all deserve it,’ Brian says.

    Choosing insurance for our homes and vehicles is one of our least favourite tasks relating to our homes. But GoCompare’s awards help to narrow things down, highlighting insurers that have given their customers excellent service over the past year.
