To find a better deal

Car insurance companies spend a lot of money advertising how important it is to switch to them from your current provider and how they can save you money. How do you know whether you will be getting the best value by only responding to the insurer who shouts the loudest in their advertising?

When you are shopping for a new car, cell phone or home appliance most of you will shop around to find the best price by comparing prices at different shops. Why then are you not shopping around for what is one of your biggest expenses each month, your car insurance premium? You will never know if you’re saving money on your policy unless you compare it with other major insurance companies.

The good news is that Better Compare is here to make it really easy and simple for you to find the best value car insurance partner which will give you the right coverage you would expect for your much-loved vehicle. Better Compare may be able to assist you in finding an insurance partner which will give you the right coverage you would expect for your much-loved vehicle.

Why it is important to... apples with apples, excess with excess

When comparing car insurance quotes from different insurance companies it is important to make sure that the excesses are similar i.e. comparing apples with apples. As an example one insurers quote premium may be R850 with an excess of R4,000, whereas for the same personal profile and same car with an excess of R10,000 the premium may be R450 with another insurer.

In the event of a claim the policyholder will have to pay the excess which may or may not be affordable for the policyholder to pay at that time. On the other hand, if there is no claim the higher excess option may win out more affordable over time.
