Hi Folks

I'm new to Swedish ways, and as has been mentioned elsewhere - prices can be higher here, than say the UK.

Anyone know which are the best Swedish 'price comparison' websites? (Dealing with electricity, phone and broadband providers, car and home insurance etc.)

Would appreciate helpful comments.

Hi again Folks

Thanks very much for these replies - I'll check them out.

Electricity rates you pay may depend on where you live (i.e. it seems to be more expensive in the countryside than in towns) and I get the feeling there isn't much competition here between companies anyway - so not really expecting any dramatic differences in rates/tariffs.

Is Sweden not a 'consumer society' in the way other countries are, or is it my imagination?

Thanks again for replies.

Not sure what you mean here. Sweden has been a world leader (for better and for worse) in deregulation and consumer choice for decades: telecommunications, electricity, taxis, trains, healthcare, schools...

I'm sure you're right. My problem is finding that choice in the areas of electricity and telecoms, (etc.) which is why I asked the question.

Maybe the choice is limited by where I live (in the countryside) - where its famously supposed to be more expensive for suppliers to 'connect' us.

I've learnt to be extremely careful in Sweden in paying others to provide goods and services - I've come across restrictive practices, and being asked to sign contracts which are anti-consumer: not my idea of a consumer-oriented way of going about things.

I'm not disputing Sweden's reputation - just that maybe there's a bit of complacency creeping in! Thanks again for the replies

Anyone know of a Swedish comparison site which looks at the energy efficiency of appliances as well as the price?

I've looked at this UK site but the models available in Sweden tend to be different.

If you want to compare prices of accountants and lawyers/attorneys, check out this website:

http://www.ageras.se/

You get 3 different offers so you can compare the price and choose the cheapest offer if the price is most important for you.

There is a ton of comparison sites out there. For example wolber.se is big in fitness, and reportr.se is up and coming within outdoor/hiking. For loans and such services, I found borner.se. Good luck and let me know if you need more tips!
