What exactly is The Zebra?


The Zebra is the nation's largest auto insurance comparison website. We compare rates from more than 200 car insurance companies so you can be sure you’re getting the best coverage at the right price. Using the information you provide us on our website, such as your zip code and car model, The Zebra gives you real-time auto insurance quotes from different companies. As you add other information, such as your credit score, age, driving record like any accident history, your quotes become more accurate! Only with us can you compare over 200 companies nationwide to find the car insurance rate and coverage perfect for you.





How does The Zebra work?


As an independent agency, we source and compare over 200 auto insurance companies to get you the coverage, service, and price you want! As we don’t sell auto insurance coverage ourselves, our only motivation is to provide you with the best auto insurance rate that fits you. We offer you transparency and objective comparisons so you can determine what is best for you and your vehicle.





Why compare car insurance rates?


As you change, so does your premium. So, when you move, change vehicles, or have a birthday, it’s important to see how your policy changes. By comparing car insurance rates every 6 months, you can ensure you’re getting the best possible coverage and quote available – because, with us, you’ll have seen them all! With The Zebra, we do all the heavy lifting for you by presenting policies that cover you and your vehicle at a premium you’ll love so you don’t have to waste time on comparing other companies.





Compare more than just prices.


Not all auto insurance premiums or policies are created equal. That's why our comparison engine compares much more than just the premiums offered by insurance companies. So, if you value more than just affordable coverage, like great claims departments or additional cover options, The Zebra can help you get covered. We offer customizable features like rental car coverage, roadside assistance, and no down payments!






Need more convincing?


Let us answer your question to get your insured faster!



How much is my policy going to cost?

Car insurance premiums are reflective of every attribute of yourself – where you live, what you drive, and how you drive, to name a few. To get the most accurate estimate premium, be as honest with us as possible.



How can I compare car insurance quotes?

By entering your information into our app, such as your age, zip code, car make/model and year, and other personal information, we are able to generate rates for what you could expect from insurance companies. The more information you give us and the more accurate you are, the more precise your rates will be! Get started today



How can I save on car insurance?

If you’re a driver with lots of accidents on your driving record, we understand that it’s hard to find auto insurance. But, your best bet is to compare as many companies to see how your rate can change by company. Every company has their own underwriting department that assesses risks differently. Meaning, no two companies are going to charge the same amount for you as another would!



Can I have a local agent if I use The Zebra?

Yes! Many of the companies we work with provide local agents to their customers. So, if that's something you value in car insurance, we can help you.



Can I compare with multiple vehicles and drivers?

Yes! You are able to add up to 4 vehicles and drivers. So rest assured, if you're shopping for your entire family, we can help.



Can I save my quote and come back later?

Yes! By logging in to either Facebook or your google account, you can save your progress or view your quote at another time.



Can I use your service if I’m financing my vehicle?

Yes - whether or not you're financing or leasing your vehicle doesn't impact your ability to use our comparison tool.



Do you offer home or renter's insurance?

Currently, we do not offer comparison quotes for those products. However, that is our plan! Stay tuned! We do, however, have some advice for homeowners and renters.





Still have questions? Here are some additional resources.


Car insurance is incredibly specific – it’s a reflection of you and your needs. So, in our efforts to better answer your questions, here are some articles specifically for you and your needs.






Looking for something else? We have more!


We have LOTS of content to help you navigate the complicated world of car insurance. Everything to age-specific information, to your occupation!
