About Bankrate UK

Our story

Bankrate started in the US in 1976 as a print publisher for the banking industry. In 1996, Bankrate.com was born and now boasts 15 million unique visitors every month. We’ve helped many people manage their money over the years, so we decided to spread the joy across the pond.

In 2018, we launched Bankrate UK. Based in Central London, Bankrate UK is a part of RVU, along with Uswitch and Money.co.uk.

Over here, we’ve chosen to focus our efforts on mortgages, though we still have plenty of personal finance information if that’s what you’re after. From first-time buyers and Help to Buy schemes to equity-release mortgages and credit scores, we’ve got you covered.

What we do

Bankrate is an online mortgage comparison and financial informational site. We can help you choose the best mortgage product to suit your needs with our comparison tables.

Whether you are buying your first home, remortgaging your house or moving up the property ladder, the whole process can be incredibly confusing and stressful. Here at Bankrate UK, we’d like to change that.

While we cannot stop house sales falling through or solicitors twiddling their thumbs, our aim is to help you learn all there is to know about mortgages, insurance, and personal finance through our range of guides, FAQs and tools.

We want to arm you with the knowledge to make informed decisions, get onto the property ladder, and ultimately take control of your finances.

How Bankrate makes money

Bankrate has an agreement in place with a third-party online mortgage broker called Mojo. When customers get a mortgage product via one of the tables on our site, we receive a commission from our third party broker.

Ensuring our information is accurate

We receive data from third party providers which continually monitor the market and update Bankrate daily with any changes or new deals to ensure our results are comprehensive and accurate.
