Save money - The big comparison sites charge insurers a significant commission payment, and particularly for those with a more modest premium, say under £400 the payment of this commission can result in insurers having to add it to the cost of the policy. Insurers who choose not be be featured on comparison sites avoid such fees and can offer cheaper premiums.
Better cover - insurers know that unless they are in the top five companies on a comparison table they are unlikely to win much business. Therefore they often 'strip down' their policies removing elements that many of us might miss until we come to claim. We have found in a number of cases that standard policies not offered through comparison services offer better cover.
