People can more easily compare car insurance prices using online tools provided by TheZebra.com and Compare.com, as of 2015, notes Forbes. Before visiting these websites, consumers should learn about different types of insurance coverage and what their states require. They should also consult with more than one insurance agent after their searches to be sure they purchase the policies that are right for them.
TheZebra.com offers comparisons of car insurance policies based on demographic information entered by visitors in categories that include State Minimum, Basic, Darn Good and Winning, explains Forbes. The site lists several policies, and people can choose to then go on to insurance company websites to make purchases, or choose or go through TheZebra.com agents. TheZebra.com offers quotes from insurance companies in all 50 states, representing more than 95 percent of the auto insurance market.
Compare.com allows visitors to get online quotes from car insurance companies and click through to make their purchases, reports Forbes. Visitors to the website can choose to receive custom quotes, or they can select from pre-packaged plans in categories such as State Minimum, Gold, Silver and Bronze. Compare.com offers quotes from several insurance companies in some states, while offering limited options in others. People who compare insurance quotes online should do so each year, as policy types and rates change often.
