There’s a great new player in the online insurance aggregater field — WeCompareInsurance.com. I’m doing some content and new media consulting for this start-up and some pretty exciting features will be rolling out over the next few weeks and months.

Right now you can hit the site for basic insurance information and to get quotes from multiple insurance companies for auto insurance, life insurance, home insurance,  health insurance and renters insurance. The easiest way to compare different rates from different companies.

Here’s a link to some info on life insurance and the basics for auto insurance.

From the auto insurance link :

The two types of auto insurance all states require car owners to carry are bodily injury and property damage. These requirements help ensure all drivers can pay for damages or injury caused by the vehicle they are driving. Each state does have it’s own specific requirements for minimum auto insurance, so do be certain you understand the requirements in your state.

Beyond required car insurance, collision is a popular option to look at when getting a car insurance quote to compare different plans. Collision pays for damages to your car in case of an accident – either with another vehicle, an object or just loss of control that leads to damages. Collision insurance comes with a deductible that must be paid before insurance kicks in, and a typical deductible will range from $250 to $1000. The higher the premium paid on the auto insurance, the lower the deductible. If you are not at fault in the accident, you might even get your deductible covered by the driver who was found at fault.

Comprehensive coverage adds anther layer of protection beyond required liability and collision. Comprehensive auto insurance covers damages or loss caused by something beyond an accident with another car or an object. This type of loss can come from a number of sources such as fire, falling objects, hail, flood, vandalism, missiles, explosion, riot, striking an animal, earthquake or windstorm. Comprehensive also covers glass breakage such as a cracked windshield. Comprehensive auto insurance is typically sold with a deductible, similar to collision.

According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, 72 percent of insured drivers opt for collision coverage and of those drivers 77 percent add comprehensive coverage to their collision and liability coverage.


  1. Purchasing term life insurance online is similar to buying it from an agent, but this way carries certain benefits such as faster processing and sometimes better rates. Online term life insurance rates help you to find the lowest term life insurance rates. By searching online, you will be able to compare the different life insurance rates offered by different vendors. This in turn can help you to choose the best company from where you could buy the policy.
