Insurance.com's user friendliness is a key to its success, lets users 'test drive' policies before they buy.

Foster City, CA (PRWEB) August 25, 2014

Insurance.com, a car insurance comparison-shopping site that offers side-by-side policy choices, marked delivery of its 11 millionth quote to consumers nationwide.

Online shopping has become the new normal when it comes to car insurance, said Des Toups, Insurance.com managing editor. When Insurance.com was founded in 2001, just contacting an insurance company via the Internet was a curiosity. Today, Insurance.com is an online marketplace for directly comparing quotes and buying a policy in less than 10 minutes.

Toups said Insurance.coms quote-comparison tool allows drivers to road-test changes in their coverage and immediately see the effect on prices that different insurance companies offer.

The company that was cheapest when you were single and had an old car very likely will not be the cheapest when you become a married homeowner trying to cover a new minivan, said Toups. We encourage our customers to crunch the numbers. Some find they already have a great deal on insurance and a lot of others save hundreds, even thousands of dollars.

An analysis of more than 550,000 recent car insurance quotes showed drastic differences between the prices insurers offered the same drivers for equivalent coverage. On average, the least expensive quote was 34 percent cheaper than the most expensive, said Toups.

Insurance.com, an independent marketplace with clients that include Progressive, Esurance, The Hartford, Travelers and 21st Century, has sold nearly 1 million policies across the U.S.
