The addition of these five brands means that there are a further eight* home insurance products that can be compared at the Gocompare.com website.
Hayley Parsons, chief executive of Gocompare.com, said, "We are delighted to add these brands to our home insurance panel. Since launching this service in September 2007, we have quadrupled the number of home insurance brands that are available via our website and we now have one of the most comprehensive home insurance comparison services in the UK."
"Shopping around to save on your household bills has never been more important - research** shows that you could be paying an extra £106.55 on your contents and buildings cover if you choose not to shop around so it's essential that you don't just accept the first quote that you are given.

Notes to Editors:
Gocompare.com launched in November 2006 to help people find the right insurance cover at the best price. It was founded by Hayley Parsons who has worked her entire career in the insurance broking and aggregator markets and was the first comparison site to focus on displaying product features rather than just listing prices. It was this philosophy that led to Gocompare.com becoming the first price comparison site to be invited to join the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA) in May 2008 and helped force older comparison sites to change their 'quick quote' ways and stop using assumptions to calculate estimated figures.
Today, Gocompare.com provides one of the most comprehensive online car insurance comparison services in the UK as well as comparing home, motorbike, van insurance and breakdown cover. In March 2008, Gocompare.com won a Fast Growth Business Award. The judges complemented the management team for 'an extremely well-executed business with a clear USP and strong brand'.
