There are different ways to buy car insurance depending on how confident you are or how much time you have on your hands.
Go direct to the insurer
You may have heard advertising from the insurer and responded to them by sending them a SMS to request for them to call you back. If you are certain that the insurer you want to deal direct with is the right option for your needs then dealing direct with them to buy their product could prove the best option for you.
Go through a broker
Insurance brokers provide advice to clients on which insurer and product would be best after doing a needs analysis with the client. Insurance brokers generally represent one or two insurance companies and have an in-depth knowledge of the insurers products. Insurance brokers earn an ongoing monthly commission from the insurance company when they sell their product to you.
Compare using an Aggregator
For consumers who may not have the time to schedule a face to face meeting with their insurance broker or may not have the time to call around to different direct insurance companies for different quotes, an aggregator like Better Compare may prove a good option. People who use an aggregator generally feel quite confident about making their own buying decisions without the assistance of a broker.
