car insurance not on comparison websites

Some companies choose not to have their car insurance policies listed on comparison sites that show you several quotes in one go. These sites are known as aggregators.

They do this because:

  • They can keep their costs down by not paying commission to comparison sites and pass the savings on with cheap policies

  • They do not want to be undercut by cheaper quotes

Yes, you should get quotes from as many insurers as possible so you can compare as many deals as possible to find the best policy.

You will need to get a quote direct from any insurer that is not on comparison websites. You can do this by phone or online, where some providers will offer you a discount.

Make sure you get quotes from the companies shown in the above comparison together with quotes from an aggregator to make sure you get the best possible deal.

Regardless of whether you use an aggregator or get quotes from companies not on comparison sites you should not just look at price when choosing a policy.

Getting the right cover for you is the most

important thing, so make sure you think about:

  • Would a specialist policy like black box insurance or multi car cover be cheaper?

  • Do you need to add any car insurance extras to your policy?
