Section 2Some products require additional terms and conditions to those set out above. Please view below for the price comparison you require.
2a) Motor, home, travel and motorbike insurance
Your responsibilityIn order to get a quote for a motor, home, travel or motorbike insurance product, you will need to answer a number of questions on our site which cover the full set of questions needed by all the different underlying insurers and any intermediaries they may use. The answers you give will determine the amount you pay and the level of cover you receive.
"Your answers will also affect the selection, by our technology, of which policies of insurance are most suitable for you. If you have processed a motor quote, you can tailor your quotation to cover a range of different circumstances (for example, to amend the voluntary excess) on the results page. When you wish to accept your quotation, it is your responsibility to ensure the changes made to the results page and also made on your proposed insurance providers website. If you have processed a home, travel or motorbike quotation, you will need to complete a separate form for each variation you require.
Please resist any temptation to be anything less than completely honest. It is very important that you answer all questions truthfully and that you disclose all relevant facts. If you do not provide your insurer with the information they have asked for, or fail to tell them about any circumstance likely to influence the insurer's assessment of the risk involved, or any change in the facts supplied or your circumstances, it could invalidate your policy. An insurer's policy contract will set out what you are promising is true, in what circumstances you are entitled to cover, and the assumptions the providers will make if you fail to provide information. Any failure on your part to supply complete and accurate information could have serious repercussions. Just to give you an example:
Did you know that if you were to make false statements or withhold any information to obtain any insurance policy it could invalidate the insurance? This could result in you being liable for any third party damage (and this could be an unlimited liability), no cover being provided for your own contents or property and, if it is a home policy, you could be breaking the conditions of your mortgage.
If you suffer from a medical condition that you have not told your travel insurance provider about, they will reject any claim connected with that condition, and, if your claim is fraudulent, they can cancel your policy and you will have no cover.
If you are in any doubt whether any information is relevant, you should tell your proposed insurance provider before you accept their quotation.
Some insurance products described in this site are only available if you meet certain requirements.For example, most motor or motorbike policies are only available to UK residents, and different insurers have different interpretations as to what counts as part of the UK. Some, for example, include the Channel Islands and/or the Isle of Man, while others exclude them. You will need to check the individual policy for details.
Most motor insurers also only offer insurance for private vehicles registered in the UK. By requesting any quote, you are confirming that you, your property/vehicle/possessions and any other relevant individuals meet the insurer's requirements and that you will immediately notify them if any of those requirements cease to be met.
We access rates from the leading UK insurance providers online. Our price comparison technology will deliver you a full list of the prices it finds along with some basic policy benefits to help you decide on a new provider. All providers specialise in slightly different risks and they do not quote on risks that fall outside their target customers or they will offer you a high price to discourage you taking out a insurance with them. Not all providers will offer you a quotation. The more "high risk" or "non-standard" your risk is classed, and remember it's their classification based on your answers, the fewer prices you will receive. In some cases, it might not be possible for you to obtain a quote at all over the internet.
If it is not possible for you to get a quote over the internet for a motor policy, you will have the option, by clicking the appropriate button, of calling or being called by Call Connection Limited, a company able to access a range of specialist insurance policies which are not currently available on-line. Your details will not be passed to Call Connection unless you click the "Get Call Connection to call me" button. Call Connection Limited, whose registered office is at Saxon House, 1 Cromwell Square, Ipswich, Suffolk IP1 1TS are authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority (authorisation number 308374).
Check before you buy
In order to accept the price our technology found for you, you must contact the insurance provider direct. We will give you a direct link to their web site along with any identification needed to access your details, which our technology automatically entered on your behalf. You can choose to accept cover over the telephone with them if you prefer, providing they offer that option. You will find all the relevant information regarding the acceptance of the product and contact details on the insurance providers website.Before you buy, it is really important that you check all the information they hold about you is correct. It is your responsibility to ensure all your details are correct, and failure to do so could result in invalidating your insurance cover. If you are buying via their web site you must also read the insurance providers own policy/agreement/terms and conditions. They are the terms and conditions that you agree to by buying from them and are completely separate from ours.
Most insurance providers make certain assumptions about you, for example, they assume you have no criminal convictions or have never been refused insurance in the past. It is important that you check the assumptions made as they form part of your contract and incorrect information could invalidate your insurance product.
Your responsibilityIn order to get a quote you will need to answer a number of questions on our site which cover the full set of questions needed by all the different energy supply companies. The answers you give will determine the estimated amount you will pay and the most suitable for you based on your answers.
Companies change their prices and tweak their rates on a fairly regular basis. The price quoted to you will nevertheless be accurate at the time of issue, based on the details you provided and confirmed. You will receive the same guarantee from the supply company you choose and if they do choose to change the tariff you selected in the future, will provide you with advance notice of the change and the opportunity to change supplier again (within 28 days) without this effecting your tariff.
ResidencyWe can only compare prices if you are resident in the United Kingdom (excluding the Channel Islands).
The process of changing supplier is extremely simple; compare the companies, select the most suitable option for you, and fill in your personal details (these are secure pages). We will then send you a confirmation email confirming your selection and the details you provided will be forwarded to the supply companies you choose in order to arrange the change over. Your chosen supplier will then contact you to confirm the date on which your new service will start. On, or as close as possible, to the supply start date, we would recommend that you take ameter reading and give this to your new supplier. They will contact you nearer the time to remind you of this.
