However, as many will attest, this is easier said than done with the way we currently buy car insurance. You may have an agent or buy direct, or maybe you use the MYEG service, which is all well and good, but how do you know that you are actually getting the best deals?

Moreover, online insurance providers might benefit from lower operational costs and are able to offer more attractive, affordable rates.
