So, What Else Can Seem Like The Same When It Really Is Quite Different?

In our opinion, it's Insurance. Insuring your car, health, life, house, or any other assets can be such an arduous task, that we often just go for the cheapest option. There is also the potential to fall into the trap of, " Well, I'm paying the same amount as my friend Sue, so we should receive the same benefits". Car Insurance Comparison(1) In reality, this is just not true. What you are covered for, and how much you pay, does not always correlate. So, what does it come down to? According to Graham Jones (Special Project Lead for Insurance at CompareGuru), it's the nitty gritty.
"Insurances might look the same at face value; same premium, same cover, but it all comes down to the claim stage and what those metrics are."
He suggests enlisting the services of a comparison engine that will show each quote alongside one another for an easier side-by-side comparison, as well as looking at short-term insurance ombudsman complaints and published company claim stats.
