Insurance Comparison Sites Come Under Fire


WEBWIRE – Thursday, November 13, 2008

What is Behind the Latest Shift at Which?

A recent article published on the consumer site, Which?, seemed to indicate that insurance comparison sites were anti-consumer, an assertion which many consider to be baseless. The site claimed that numerous insurance company quotes differed from site to site and seemed to indicate to consumers that bypassing the comparison sites could provide them with additional savings.

However, according to No Claims Discount, there is a deeper issue at the heart of the matter, and one that consumers should be aware of. Although there are a few less-than-forthcoming aggregators in the industry, by far, the majority of insurance comparison sites have consumerís best interests at heart. The company pointed out that without the help of these sites, consumers could end up spending hundreds, if not thousands more on car insurance, as well as other types of coverage.

The site also provided a common sense answer to the question posed by Which? in regards to the difference in pricing that can be seen on many comparison sites. Although there may be a slight difference, policy quotes, especially with health insurance, can differ greatly based on factors that are unique to the policy seeker and not every site asks the exact same questions.

By far, the expert consensus points to insurance comparison as the best means to save at least time, if not money, on different types of insurance policy quotes. Without this vital service, the state of the insurance industry could change dramatically allowing insurers to have more control over general pricing due to the lack of encouraged competition. Despite the recent article from Which? the fact remains that insurance comparison sites offer a vital service to the public, as well as an incentive amongst insurers to check their own pricing structures regularly.

About the Company: No Claims Discount offers consumers the opportunity to get real pricing from real insurance companies, without all the hassles. Thousands of customers have been able to find the right insurance plan thanks to their efforts. By offering consumers real world information about insurance policies, the site provides a valuable, unique service that is unmatched.
