The idea for a comparison engine was born when Dutch founders and managing directors Hans de Kok and Niels Brölman met in South Africa. Two young entrepreneurs with a clear mission to empower consumers everywhere by giving them easy online tools to compare and switch their energy, insurance and telecom contracts. Not long after, Pricewise.nl went live in 2008.
That's not just what we say, but also what we do. We believe in being fair. We are fair to each other and to our customers. We are transparent about how we make our money. Suppliers have no direct or indirect stake in Pricewise. To us it doesn’t matter if you choose supplier A or supplier B. We receive the same fee from all suppliers.
With the subsequent introduction of collective energy campaigns we established a pan-European company in 2010. Since then we have teamed up with partners such as governments, media companies, national consumer and non-profit organisations, causing major breakthroughs in the Netherlands, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Germany, Portugal, Slovenia, Italy and Austria. The result: strongly increased levels of transparency, efficiency and competition. And over 2,5 million switches.
