Comparing car insurance online quotes is easy as eating pie! In the good ‘ol days, you would of had to go to a broker and reveal all your personal details to them and they would trot off and try find the best commission for themselves, cough cough, I mean, best price for you! First of all, it would take forever and a day to obtain these quotes and when they retrieved these prices for you, they would push you the one which was more beneficial for themselves, due to their earnings out of the sale, being the middle man, obviously they needed to earn a living and some, to pay for their buildings, staff and time.
The beauty of the world wide web and especially the car insurance industry is the minimal overheads, which means more savings for the consumer! The actual insurance bodies are able to make more profit by dealing direct with the customer or, via an online broker, which is what us car insurance comparison websites are, we aggregate your details which you enter into a simple online form and we have a panel of direct insurers that will give you a car insurance quote directly, sure, being as transparent as I am, online comparison websites are a sort of ‘broker’ but we don’t have even a fraction of overheads to deal with compared to the olden days, therefore our commission is much much less which passes on a rather lower quote to you all.
