Australia’s Biggest Financial Comparison Site

We compare more brands

  • There are a number of ways you can be the biggest
  • We thought about what ‘biggest’ means to customers and we think it’s somewhere you can go to compare the biggest range of brands so that you can be sure that you’re seeing the whole picture
  • Biggest means more brands – all the majors that you would expect to see plus lots of other providers too

We only count what you can compare

  • We have over 740 brands on the site – that’s a lot of brands so we had a look at what other sites offering a similar service to Canstar have and the results are below;

As at 4 September 2018

  • To be included in the count, a brand has to be able to be compared with another product from another brand on the tables on the site and we’re talking finance and Australia only.

We got a second opinion

  • Our inner nerd and over 25 years of research experience means we know how important the numbers are so we got a second opinion. Leading professional services firm Grant Thornton reviewed and confirmed our approach.

We’re big in other ways too

  • We help you compare financial products from the three major areas of finance – banking, insurance, and superannuation/investments. We have over 30 finance categories on the site and counting!
    What’s more, when it comes to Home Loans, we have over 4000 Home Loans that you can compare. This number is based on unique combinations of interest rates, terms and conditions.

What’s more we’re the Original Financial Comparison Site too!

That’s right, we were established over 25 years ago in 1992 with our website going live in 1996.
