Anyone of a website listing as many insurance companies and brokers as possible (i.e like the ones in the back of the car mags!).

Looking to get a new quote, using the old fashioned method of as many quotes as possble and selecting the cheapest!!

A lot of the brokers and online quote engines seem to use the same actual syndicates/companies.

The one that charged the lowest commission for me was Budget - www.budgetinsurance.com

Also look at Tesco and Direct Line. If you have any special needs, e.g., a young driver, Adrian Flux has an excellent reputation.

Oh and www.elephant.co.uk seems to use its own method of calculating premiums and seems quite good for high risk and younger drivers.

I don't know if this is of use to you - but I have *never* been able to beat my renewal from Direct Line...

Egg will beat any quote by a pound and promise not to charge any more if you stay with them for the second year. Or at least they did a couple of months ago.

Give Norwich Union Direct a go, they've been excellent for me for the last three years. I always shop around and they always come in at the lowest. Excellent service too, so far.

They say trouble comes in threes.

One write off (paid up in 10 days), extensive legal work required for injuries sustained in the accident backed by an excellent lawyer (do those two words really go together?).

To my embarassment, backed into a neighbours car only gently(thanks to a on-coming, non-attentive transit van) and thanks to their policy of two claims in three years rule, didn't affect the premium.

Recently, I had to get a tow back home on Easter Sunday, breakdown truck was there in 45 minutes.

I've been with AXA for years, I shop around every year and they're always the cheapest.
A friend swears by www.tesco.com and I must admit they come very close to AXA's price for me and my car, well worth a try.

I find this quite strange. All the companies quoted here so far gave me far higher quotes than the one I've been using for the last 2 years - KwikFit Insurance! I know location, driver, car type etc come into the equation, but the likes of AXA, Direct Line and the rest are always way above what I end up paying.

www.find.co.uk lists about 150 car insurance cos. and brokers, probably all the cos. that do on-line quotes.

Thanks to Sparky for the www.confused.com link - you've just saved my daughter about £35.

However, the second best price found by confused.com was beaten by several others that confused.com didn't find:

TPFT, Peugeot 309 Diesel, Leicestershire, Age 24, 6 years driving experience but no insurance in her own name, no accidents etc:

£400.00 www.insurancenow.com (found by confused.com)
£435.75 www.elephant.co.uk
£435.96 www.axa-insurance.co.uk (with a whopping £475 excess).
£450.62 www.kwik-fit.com
£456.10 Peoples Choice (found by confused.com)

No. Most of them are not insurance companies. They are intermediaries (some may be insurance brokers) who deal with a selected 'panel' of insurance cos and are paid commission which is, of course, built into the premium. A lot of these have been set up in the last few years specifically to take advantage of the internet and, with the exception of those which advertise in the press/TV, are largely unknown. Their 'panel' of insurance cos. will not include insurance cos. which do not pay commission i.e. most of the direct insurers.

Be wary of excessive charges for payment by instalments and fees for e.g. changing your car, cancelling a policy etc.

I prefer to deal directly with the insurance co. but an intermediary can be useful if the risk is unusual.
