We are challenging those who can consider switching to offset the eye watering increases in their bills by comparing with us. We mean everything from broadband, TV, credit cards and mortgages to car, home, pet and even life insurance.

Is it better to buy earlier?

You can buy your car insurance up to 29 days before the policy start date and 'lock in' the price you're quoted on that day.

And our research shows it's better to buy early. The closer to the renewal date you get, the more you could end up paying.

Our customers saved over 55% on average by buying their car insurance 27 days before their renewal date, compared with those renewing on the day.*

Insurers can change their prices at any time, so the price you see when you first compare quotes might change if you return to buy later.
