The frustrations of insurance shopping
There’s nothing more frustrating than uncertainty, especially where money is concerned. When you’re looking for insurance, online quotes can be an exciting idea (who doesn’t like talking on the phone to insurance agents less?). But they can also be frustrating, when the rate you are quoted changes when you actually buy the policy.
When you’re comparing car insurance online through sites like The Zebra — whose sole function is to help you save on insurance — those frustrations can still happen. Yes, you get access to a number of quotes you can easily compare…but how accurate are they? Is that actually what you will pay?
In the interest of transparency, in this article we’re going to address why the numbers you see in quotes might not be final, how to improve their accuracy and what to do if you don’t see any quotes.
