Online Real-time Quoting
We did a thorough testing on all of the websites. We quoted multiple car options and states, so we could simulate a realistic customer shopping for insurance. Relatively all of the websites had pretty easy and simple quoting process.
From one to another they are similar but they have their differences. For which one is the best we can’t say, because it all comes down to the customers’ preference. Some might ask you for more information some for less. With that said, let’s see the actual options we’ve got from the companies, like how many quotes we can compare and how many we can actually buy on the spot.
Insurox.com got the most rates (7 quotes) for comparing and that you can actually buy directly online. Insurox also shows you quotes that you can buy over the phone with an agent, but we are only comparing buying a policy online.
Everquote.com doesn’t have any direct carriers to compare quotes from.
Compare.com also has direct carriers, they claim that they have 54 Insurance Companies. But from our testing, we only got one quote from a carrier that you could actually buy online. So that doesn’t look like you are comparing 54 companies.
TheZebra.com on their website they say that they work with over 200 insurance companies. First of all, this is kinda strange because they don’t even give you quotes from at least 10 companies. Nonetheless, we tested their quoting system too and, we only got one direct real-time quote. All other were referrals or you had to call an agent and go through the same process again which is totally not as advertised.
Other types of insurance
As of today real-time quoting for Homeowners, Condo, Renters, and Flood insurance are only available with Insurox. The other companies only have a real-time quoting process for Auto insurance.
If you choose Insurox it will be a big benefit, because you can compare auto and other insurances that you’ll need. Plus there are discounts on bundle insurances.
In this segment, Insurox is the only one that’s not available in all the states. All other companies are available in all 50 states in America.
- Insurox has 52 direct carriers
- Everquote doesn’t have any direct carriers, they are a lead generator and they sell or share your information with other agencies or insurance companies.
- Compare.com has 54 Insurance Companies
- TheZebra.com on their website they say that they work with over 200 insurance companies. But, we don’t have the information how many of those are direct carriers or just referrals.
