Representing Top Insurance Companies

Best Company. We offer quotes in 46 states and the District of Columbia (everywhere except Alaska, Hawaii, Massachusetts and New York). And, if you want to compare what each company has to offer, we have detailed information about their discounts, coverage and service options.
Online or by Phone ¨C It¡¯s Your Choice
Insurance.com is designed to let you customize the way you learn about insurance, compare quotes and buy a policy whenever you¡¯re ready. You can do everything online: research coverage options, learn about the companies we represent, complete an application, compare rates and payment options, buy a policy and get immediate proof of insurance.
Often, our customers will start their research online and then call to speak with a licensed agent. Or you can chat online. We'll help you complete your application or explain your choice of carriers and coverage. When you¡¯re ready to buy, you can retrieve your quote and pay online or make a payment by phone.
How insurance.com Makes Money
We get paid when you buy a policy. But, we¡¯re not in a hurry and don¡¯t want you to be either. We provide comparison quotes for you directly from top car insurance companies - and that service is free. You can change your information as much as you like and get as many new quotes as you wish. If you buy a policy from our agency online or by phone, we¡¯re paid a commission by the insurance company you select. (There are no extra costs or fees.) When you ask for a quote for life and health insurance, we earn a small referral fee, but not a commission, because we don't sell those policies yet.

ComparisonMarket, Inc. acquired the insurance.com agency and domain name in July of 2003, and quickly expanded the features and information on the site.
