If you’re looking for UK car insurance then you have a few choices to make. There are 2 main options when looking for UK car insurance.
You can look for UK car insurance either online or through a broker, but there are more choices online. Generally speaking a personal broker deals with a limited range of UK car insurance companies and will contact them to obtain a price for your Uk car insurance. So you don’t canvas a very wide selection of car insurance companies. However it can be well worthwhile anyway.
UK car insurance quotes can also be sought directly through insurers. There is no need to go through a car insurance broker UK. However if you seek a UK car insurance quote through the insurer direct you will not get any comparative quotes unless you contact a number of UK car insurers for comparison.

There are also car insurance UK quote comparison services which will often obtain a wider range of quotes for you. They commonly offer the quote to both a wide range of brokers as well as to some of the insurers direct. This way they can get a wider range of offers on your car insurance needs.
However you will find that you have less choice online if you have needs which are outside the ordinary range. For example if you have residency issues, an unusual type of car, perhaps some car modifications or other car issues you may well be better to contact brokers direct.
And there is one other problem with an online car insurance quote. You might get a cheaper price, but what about the quality of the company. We’ve said before, the quality of the company is as important (or more) than the price.
