bonkers.ie is one of only three websites accredited for energy comparisons by the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU), Ireland's independent energy regulator.
The CRU only accredits a price comparison website if it meets certain high standards around independence, impartiality and accuracy.
bonkers.ie was the very first website in Ireland to receive this accreditation back in 2013 and we have retained it every year since!
At bonkers.ie you can compare products across a range of energy, broadband, banking and insurance providers all in the one place, helping you save time and money on all your most important household bills.
So whether you’re looking to switch to a cheaper energy supplier, a faster broadband provider, a lower mortgage rate, or want better insurance cover, we can help.
Not only do we list all of the deals publicly available from each supplier, because of our lasting relationship with suppliers, customers who use bonkers.ie will sometimes have access to exclusive tariffs and deals only available on bonkers.ie, and nowhere else, meaning you can save even more on your bills.
When comparing energy deals and the wide range of other products on bonkers.ie you can guarantee that the prices we quote are always accurate, transparent, and up-to-date. That’s because we’re not just a comparison website, we’re a fintech company. We are required to conduct complex calculations for our comparisons daily so our technology platform is something we continue to invest heavily in so that you get the best experience possible.
Additionally, whereas some websites choose to outsource their data and engineering, our team of in-house engineers is constantly at-hand to make sure our website is always accessible no matter where you are or what device you're using.
As a fintech our aim is to make the sign-up process to any new provider as easy and as seamless as possible for you too. Almost everything can be done online and any orders you place with us can be stored in your free bonkers.ie online account which you can access for future reference at any stage.
However we realise that not everyone has embraced the online world as quickly as others so we also have a small Dublin-based customer service team for those who would like a helping hand and a voice to speak to while switching.
Given all our investment in technology we were delighted, but not surprised, to see our founder and the group CEO of bonkers.ie, David Kerr, recognised as one of the Top 50 Global Financial Technology CEOs of 2020 according to influential news publication The Financial Technology Report.
Unsurprisingly after such recognition, David has big plans for bonkers.ie and you, our customers, over the coming months and years... so watch this space!
bonkers.ie is a recipient of the distinctive 'Guaranteed Irish' hallmark and we have been for over eight years!

When it comes to the information that appears on our website we have the strictest controls and standards in place for all products.
For our energy comparisons in particular we are routinely audited by the energy regulator with on-going reviews in place to ensure our information remains clear, independent, and accurate.
And for our life insurance and mortgage products we are regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.

Our website makes it quick and easy to change energy suppliers, compare mortgage rates, get a life insurance quote, sign up to a new broadband provider and much more.
