What is the cheapest insurance company in the UK?

Insurers change their prices all the time and vary their quotes depending on who’s getting a quote, so we can’t answer that. Once you get a quote we order your results by price, so it’s easy to see who’s given you the cheapest price. Some insurers also have special offers, which we clearly mark for you to see.

If you’re looking for how to save yourself some money on your insurance, we’ve got some tips on how to get cheaper car insurance.

While the price of insurance is important for lots of UK drivers, it’s also key to make sure you have the right level of cover.

Which is the best car insurance company in the UK?

It’s not as simple as calling out one company over the others. What’s best for you might not be best for someone else. And, because our service is impartial, we can’t make a judgement on it. We do try to give you as much information as possible to help you decide, though.

If you care about price or what’s included in the policy, you’ll find all the information for each insurer when you get a quote. We also show you a Defaqto rating for each policy. Each policy is scored by Defaqto against 47 factors to create a rating from 1 – 5. With this you can quickly find out what the quality of the policy is.

Why are some insurers listed more than once?

You might get more than one quote from the same insurance company. This is because insurers often offer different policies with different levels of cover to suit different needs. Some policies might only offer minimum protection while others could include extras. This is usually reflected in the price. You might think of them as basic, standard, or premium. To make it easier to understand the difference we clearly show what’s included in each policy. If you’re unsure what is and isn’t included, speak to the insurer before buying.

Is this your first time buying car insurance or do you want to understand how prices are worked out? Our guide explains how car insurance is calculated.
