The inital company (Bencom BV) was established in 1998, later followed by Benergy BV (2003), LookingforBooking BV (2009) and Bensure with the healthcare comparison site (2014). The Bencompare app was launched in 2018. That year, the entire group will have approximately 45 employees and nine comparison sites, which will be maintained from two office locations, one in Groningen and one in Voorthuizen. The Bencom Group provides consumers, institutions and companies with independent and objective information about services and rates in the field of telecommunication, internet, digital television, energy and hotel accommodations. In 2014, made the step towards the insurance world.

Independent and objective

The independence is guaranteed at all times so that consumers can continue to rely on us. The comparisons are therefore always entirely objective. The Bencom Group is not affiliated with an interested company, so providers have no control over the activities and the information on the sites.

Bencom Group heeft er geen enkel voordeel bij om een bepaalde aanbieder met voorrang te behandelen; in haar vergelijkingen worden ook aanbieders getoond met wie zij geen samenwerking heeft, ook als deze als beste uit de vergelijking komen. Daarnaast streeft de Bencom Group ernaar een zo compleet mogelijk beeld van de markt weer te geven door minimaal 95% van het aanbod van een bepaalde markt in haar vergelijkingen op te nemen.

How it all began

It all started when the then 13 -year-old Ben Woldring in received a school assignment in 1998 with the aim of creating a website. Ben decided to create a summary of different tariffs for fixed telephony and built the website

Revenue model

Bencom offers all its services to the consumer free of charge. Usually, visitors have the opportunity to order a product or service directly. This is possible since we transfer the order directly to the site of the provider or online shop, in order to facilitate the switch via Bencom for free. Given that our visitors are often interested in new products and are prepared to purchase various kinds of services, our sites are attractive for advertisers to show their products and services on. It is also possible to advertise using one of our newsletters which have a major range and which will be published at least once a month.
