Are comparison websites holding back information about your car insurance policy?

A recent Which? survey revealed that there could be discrepancies in the policies offered by car insurance brands on leading comparison websites.  Here we’ll uncover what evidence was found and what you can do to protect yourself.

What did the Which? study reveal?

All four of the main comparison sites had errors including:

    • Claims about sunroof cover being included but ultimately missing from the resulting policy.
    • Numerous instances of a guaranteed courtesy car, which was not reflected in the policy documents.
    • Exaggeration of personal accident cover, including overstating provider disability cover.
  • Clear cases of overestimating cover for theft and loss of keys.

What does this mean for you?
