How it works

We do the searching. You do the saving.

Step 1: Tell us a little about yourself.

Choose an insurance product and enter your ZIP code to get started (and have your driver's license and VIN number handy, too). We’ll ask you a few more questions to make sure we’re able to match you with the best options.

Step 2: Sip your coffee and wait.

Sit back while our algorithm gets to work finding you the best policy for you from 100+ insurance companies.

Step 3: Review and purchase.

It’s that simple. Compare your quotes side-by-side and make the right choice; purchase online in minutes or give one of our licensed insurance agents a call to get help figuring out what makes the most sense.

Step 4: Stay in touch!

We’ll remind you when it’s time to shop again (we recommend looking around every six months) but if your circumstances change before then, reach out and we’ll give you a hand!

What The Zebra is

The Zebra is an insurance comparison site that can streamline your research process by delivering personalized auto or home insurance quotes from top companies.

What The Zebra is not

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. 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.

Insurance is complicated, but it doesn't have to be.
