What The Zebra is not

We’re not here to generate leads for insurance companies, so you won’t be getting spam from them or from us. And we’re not an insurance provider. We just do the legwork to collect personalized quotes and then (if you want assistance), we help you make the right decision and purchase a new policy.

Consult our Privacy Policy for details on how we keep your personal information secure.

Step 4: Save hundreds per year!

That’s really all there is to it. Once you’ve signed your new policy, kick back and enjoy your savings. does The Zebra make money?

The next question we get after “how does The Zebra save me money?” is how we at The Zebra keep the lights on and provide our comparison service free of charge and with no obligations. 

Don’t worry, The Zebra doesn't earn money by selling your data to a bunch of insurance companies. We make money in a couple of ways. First, if you end up purchasing a policy from one of our licensed insurance agents, we make a commission. Or if you choose to buy a policy from a quote we provided, the insurance company you purchase with gives us a commission.

That said, our editorial decisions are not influenced by our relationships with our insurance company partners.
