Insure.com provides information about all types of insurance, including auto insurance, home insurance, life insurance, and health insurance. It is comparable to other websites such as All Web Leads and NetQuote. By entering some basic information about themselves, users can be directed to quotes from insurance companies. The site can be a good way for users to do some basic research into rates from one site as opposed to having to visit multiple insurance companies' websites individually.

Keep in mind that Insure.com accepts advertising from insurance companies, so users should not expect the information they receive to be 100% objective. However, that does not discount the usefulness of the site.

How It Works

On the website, you can compare insurance quotes from different companies for life insurance, auto insurance, health insurance, homeowners insurance, and several other types of insurance. There also is an option for those who speak Spanish. You start by selecting the type of insurance you need from a drop-down menu and entering your zip code. You are then given a list of websites to obtain a quote in your area. To obtain an actual quote, you have to follow a link to one of the individual insurance company websites.

The website has an “ask the insurance expert” feature where you can type in your question and have it answered by an insurance professional. There is a list of previous questions and answers for your information. Questions and answers listed include topics on life insurance, auto insurance, health insurance, and homeowners insurance. The site also has a library of insurance articles to help consumers make informed purchasing decisions. For example, if you want to know what the minimum auto insurance requirements are in each state, Insure.com provides a list.

Best Insurance Companies Annual List

One thing Insure.com does well is its customer surveys. The company conducts surveys of customers nationwide in the areas of customer service, claims satisfaction, price value, and the percentage of customers who plan to renew their coverage. The results of these surveys are used within the insurance industry to list the top-performing insurance companies. Insure.com releases its Best Insurance Companies list annually. This is an important tool for consumers to find the best insurance companies for their needs. For 2021, the selections for the 10 best auto, home, health, and life insurance companies were based on a survey of over 3,700 policyholders. The five best health insurance and five best life insurance companies were also listed.
