It is a website that uses an aggregator to give you a range of car insurance quotes from their panel of insurers.

It can be a quick and easy way to find cheap policies, but be careful not to buy car insurance on price alone.

Pros and cons of comparison sites

  • Get lots of quotes quickly

  • Quotes shown in price order

  • Only one form to complete

  • Not all insurers are on them

  • Can be cheaper if you go direct

  • Multi car policies not shown

How do they work?

They provide quotes based on the information you give, which includes:

  • Your personal details; e.g. name, address and date of birth

  • What car you want to cover; e.g. the make and model

  • What licence you have; e.g. full UK or provisional

  • How you use your car; e.g. commuting to work only

Get the right cover and price

When you get your quotes they will be ordered with the cheapest cover first, but do not go for the top policies if they do not offer the cover you need.

Think about if you want a specialist policy like black box insurance or multi car cover, or if you want to add any policy extras.

Multi car policies are not shown on the comparison sites in the above table, but you can compare multi car insurance here.

Check as many insurers as you can

Our table shows how many companies each site compares, but there are some insurers that choose not to be included on them at all.

To find the best policy make sure you get quotes from these companies too; you can compare car insurance not on comparison sites here.
