Are comparison websites conning users

With my car insurance is up for renewal next month I decided to try out a couple of car insurance comparison websites.

My first surprise was the fact that no results were returned by my present insurer, Direct Line.

This seems strange, as how can we get a true and fair comparison if one of the major car insurers isn’t included by the car insurance comparison sites?

The 2nd thing I noticed was that even though I used 2 completely seperate comparison sites, the results returned were exactly the same.

I made a note of the quotes, went online with a 2nd pc (to ensure no cookies were picked up) and went direct to the insurer which the comparison site had the cheapest.

I added exactly the same details, and got a bit of a surprise, the price this time was cheaper.
