Australian Auto Insurance Q&A (Part Two) (250 Words)

I’ve decided on the level of coverage I need. What should I do now?

You will need to decide where to purchase your auto insurance policy. If you live in a town or city, it’s highly likely that there will be land-based auto insurance outlets nearby. Alternatively, you could use a telephone call center to make further enquiries. However, these two options are not as popular as they once were because of the time levels required and the additional cost of local rate telephone calls.

So what are my other options?

Most Australian road users now purchase their auto insurance on the Internet. Practically every major carrier now runs a standalone website where coverage can be purchased. Because of the lower overheads involved in making a sale, online auto insurance quotes are actually much cheaper than other alternatives.

Even so, won’t visiting lots of different website take a long time?

Unfortunately, this is true. To find the best possible online auto insurance quotes, you will need to go to several different websites to gain a wider range of quotes. Even then, you may be left thinking that you could have found a cheaper alternative elsewhere.

Do I have any other choices?

Yes. You can save time and money by using a price comparison website. These excellent resources provide online auto insurance quotes from a wide range of different providers, many of whom operate on standalone websites as well. Price comparison websites allow you to condense your searches and, ultimately, they help you to find the most preferential deals.
