It used to be the case that you would have to visit your local, insurance agency in the high street and discuss all your insurance needs.  They would find the best possible prices and you would either say yes, or go somewhere else and repeat the process!

Thankfully this is no longer the only option.  As well as being able to contact insurance companies direct, you can now access an online insurance agency.  Whilst this may mean there is no face to face contact, there are some serious advantages to using an online Harvard insurance agency:

Time

Completing all the necessary forms to apply for insurance can be tedious; especially if you have to do it again and again.  Fortunately if you choose to use an online insurance agency you will be able to create a secure account.  This will allow your personal details to be saved and then automatically filled in on each of the applications you complete.  This is a real time saver when you are looking for insurance quotes for a variety of different items.

Access

An online Agency is open all the time.  In many cases it can search the insurance company’s database and provide you with a quote in moments; even if you are not an existing client.  It will make certain assumptions when providing these quotes and, whilst these are usually true, it is worth verifying them.

You can choose to obtain quotes in the middle of the night or the middle of the day; the system will work the same regardless!  If you need more information you will be able to email the insurance agency who will replay as quickly as they can.  It may even be possible to contact them via live chat and discuss the issue with a real person!

Multiple Policies

It is highly likely that an online insurance agency will be able to help you save money if you place all your insurance policies with them.  In effect you will get a bulk buy discount!  The fact that you do not need to re-enter your information is a bonus!

Information

The internet is full of information. If there are details on the policy or quote which you do not understand you can quickly get answers by looking for the information on the insurance agency site.  If the info you need does not appear there then it is possible to look on the web to find out more.  You should be able to find out absolutely everything you need to know about your policy.

Speed

Finally, an online insurance agency is fast.  You do not need to wait your turn in a queue.  Simply visit the site and enter your information.  Choose your preferred policy and, if you choose to, you can even take out the policy.  This will provide you with cover even if it is the middle of the night!  You will be able to print your documents and even share the insurance agency with a friend!
