“If you have time, it can be worth putting your details through them all.”
BBC(response to watchdog by the comparison sites)
“Unfortunately no single comparison site is able to display every quote from every car insurance provider — but it’s still much easier and quicker to visit two or three comparison sites” — uswitch
“Q: Shouldn’t I try more than one comparison site? A: It’s only natural to shop around for the best price.”
“Ultimately, though, no single site covers the entire market. Perhaps the best option is to use a range of sites — in effect, comparing the comparison sites.”

“If you’re comparing markets, you really need to try two or three of them to get the best out of them because they have a habit of throwing different deals up after you’ve given them your details. You could almost do with a Gocomparetheconfuseduswtichmarket site to tell you which one is best.”
Filling in your details multiple times on site designed to stop you filling in your details multiple times sucks.
We fixed it.
