How does QuickQuote work?

Quoting on car insurance is based on various factors – such as your address, driving history and so on. If you’ve visited Confused.com before, we already know your details and we use these to find you a QuickQuote for the car registration you entered.

So if you see a car for sale in the street, for example, you can find out our best price for insuring you on it there and then.

Is QuickQuote accurate?

QuickQuote is accurate, unless anything about you has changed since you last used Confused.com. For example, if you’ve changed your job, had points on your licence, or anything else which might affect your prices. In which case, you’ll have to come to the site to amend your details.

We also make some assumptions. If your last quote was over 12 months ago, we assume that any years have been claim free, and add these to your No Claims Bonus. Likewise, we add to the years for which you've held your licence. Both of these may have an impact on the price.

What assumptions have you made about me?

If your last quote via the Confused.com website was in the last 12 months we assume nothing has changed since you last visited.

If your last quote via the Confused.com website was over 12 months ago, certain variables will be rolled on a year. These are:

  • The date your cover's required from
  • Claims and convictions for the proposer and additional drivers (items older than 5 years are removed) 
  • No Claims Bonus

We assume you have not yet purchased the vehicle. We also assume that the vehicle details are the same as your last recorded quote. These are: 

  • If the car has been imported 
  • If car is a right or left-hand drive 
  • If the car has an alarm and/or immobiliser 
  • If the car has a tracker

QuickQuote assumes no other changes are required to your previous quote, including motoring convictions and claims.

What if my details have changed?

Even if your details have changed since you last used Confused.com, QuickQuote will still give you a good idea of what you’re likely to pay for your insurance. However, you will need to update your details on our site before you can buy your policy.

Why doesn't QuickQuote recognise my email address?

To use QuickQuote, you must have a Confused.com account and have obtained a car insurance quote. We use the details from your last car insurance quote to get you a QuickQuote.

If you are unable to obtain a QuickQuote please check that the email address you entered is the one registered to your Confused.com account.

You'll also need to complete a car insurance quote on our site to use QuickQuote.

Why doesn't QuickQuote recognise my car registration?

QuickQuote will only work for car registration plates registered in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

We can recognise the vast majority of car registration numbers. However, our coverage isn’t 100 per cent, and occasionally we might not be able to get a quote for the car in question.

How do I buy the policy from QuickQuote?

Once you have your QuickQuote, you’ll need to confirm your previous details are still correct. So if you’ve moved house, for example, you’ll need to edit your details so that they’re up to date.

You’ll then be able to see the full selection of all your prices, and choose who you wish to get your insurance from.
