We all know how confusing it can be to buy insurance at times, especially given the fact that it seems like every insurance company is offering a wide range of special add ons and extras these days to cloud the matter even further. Fortunately for us there are a wide number of car insurance price check websites available online.
While it's impossible to give everyone an accurate idea of exactly what their insurance is going to cost, these sites do a fine job of giving you a rough ball park figure from which you can start to form a good idea of what prices you are likely to pay with each insurance company.
In the past the only way to do this would be to go onto each company's website and register for a free quote. Obviously this isn't ideal, since it's hugely time consuming and it can prove frustrating at times. Go even further back and you would have had to contact each company over the phone in order to get your insurance quote!
With websites like comparethemarket.com, moneysavingexpert.com, moneysupermarket.com, confused.com and car-insurance-uk-supermarket.co.uk you can now generate quotes on the fly from a wide number of insurance companies simultaneously.
Although the quotes won't be one hundred per cent accurate, and you may find the actual cost turns out to be a little higher or a little lower, you'll get an excellent idea of how the various companies weigh up against each other. Once you have it narrowed down to a handful, you can contact them yourself to see if you can get further reductions in cost.
