Car Insurance Quotes: How To Get The Best Deals

Jun 27, 2008
Car insurance has the potential to be a major expense that drivers pay year after year to legally be able to keep driving their cars on the road. Not only does it protect you in the event of theft and accidents on the road, but it also keeps you on the right side of the law. However, it could cost you a huge chunk of your household budget if the insurance company considers you undesirable. This is determined by all sorts of factors, including but not limited to, postcode, the presence of a garage and car alarm system, the make and model of the car and the individual's demographic group.

There are some reasonable and affordable car insurance quotes available to you if you know where to look for them In fact, it can take only five minutes of your time to get one of the great deals out there. You could go to several car insurance companies directly, but you would probably miss out on the best policies at the cheapest prices. Going to a comparison site, or an aggregator site to give it the correct name, is much quicker and can work out to be a lot cheaper.

Take Steven Brown, for example. He went to the websites of Nationwide, HSBC, E-sure, Direct Line and Norwich Union for quotes. He did find a good deal at E-sure for his 2007 Ford Fiesta 1.4l Zetec Climate, but could have saved a further 109 had he gotten a quote from Churchill as well.

There are some great aggregator sites out there that give you access to many insurance companies. In fact, the aggregator that has the most companies in partnership with them can give you a much wider range of car insurance quotes.

With more car insurance companies to choose from, you can compare features and prices and choose the best overall deal for you after just one search, thus saving an immense amount of time in the process.

However, before you obtain car insurance quotes from any company, you need to be aware of the fact that some companies charge a lot more for their car insurance than others. Regardless of whether you re using an aggregator or going straight to the company, bigger insurers like Norwich Union may be more expensive. They have a good reputation but could potentially charge you more because someone has to fund their immense advertising budget. As such, their quote may not be value for money.

All of the above applies for individuals with a standard car, but it will not apply for those of you with a performance car. Performance cars are a whole different ball game!

They tend to offer the best possible deals for performance car insurance quotes. Larger insurers tend to put their policy prices up for performance cars and may not offer you the cover you need. Performance car insurers, on the other hand, will.
