[ Join discussion ]

Getting online quotes have their own advantages. Listed below are few of the benefits that you may get:
  • Saves time: The biggest advantage of seeking auto policy quotes online is that it saves a lot of your time and energy. You need to spare only a few minutes from whatever you are doing and drag your mouse to the same sections of various websites. You can access different companies that maybe geographically located far away from each other and may not be accessible in a day.
  • Compare rates: There are sites where you can get quotes of different insurance companies and also compare them to find the best rate.
  • Read information online: You do not have to visit different companies and collect brochures from them or wait for agents to come and explain the policy. Browse through the different sections of company websites to find out about policies and returns.
  • Gives variety: There are so many companies now offering online quotes. This means you can get a variety of rates on the internet. You can check out multiple companies and the products that they offer. You can find a suitable policy that covers you for all that you need.
While there are reliable companies offering affordable rates, there are also scam companies trying to take away your money. You must be careful when seeking online quotes. Check the reputation of the company before you do any sort of business with them. There are rating companies that rate insurers. Check out the rates received by the insurer you have chosen in order that you do not fall prey to scam companies out there.

Hey, most of the insurance companies now-a-days offer their quotes online. Visit the sites of the auto insurance companies to obtain the quotes. Also there are few sites, who allow you receive quotes as well as compare the rates of different insurers.

However, the quotes received from internet may vary from the quotes available from an agent. Hence, don't get surprised when the rate that you have received from the site will differ from the rate that from the agent.

Search on the google with the words Auto/home/life insurance quotes. I'm sure that you'll be showered with the sites offering insurance quotes online.

Just a word of caution, there are many hoax sited available too online, who might use the information for phishing. Remember that you never have to divulge your SSN and/or bank account information in sites to receive the quotes. Hence, its important to check the authenticity of the sites before giving out information.

However, you might be asked to give your phone number and contact details since the agents will be contacting you on these numbers.

Happy shopping Very Happy

There are a ton of sites that offer auto quotes online. But yes, there are some not-so-reputable places to shop.

If you have an idea what company you want to try, go directly to those sites: geico.com, statefarm.com, progressive.com, etc. It saves time from having to call each company and jab with them on the phone for 20 minutes a piece. Not my idea of a productive use of time.

For multiple quotes, check out some of the more popular quote aggregators. They're online quotes, so it's not guaranteed you'll get the exact price, but it should give you a ballpark estimate. From there you can call up the company and confirm the price over the phone. Jeorge is right -don't divulge your SSN online! Only give it over the phone - most companies use credit as a component of their quote models.

Some of those aggregator sites are carinsurance.com, carinsurancerates.com, insureme.com, or even my humble site carinsuranceguidebook.com Smile That's not my primary focus, but I offer a click through to get a quote.
