Find out why you should switch to buying online car insurance ASAP! Spoiler alert: it’s pretty safe to do so!

Long gone are the days where you could only purchase insurance by visiting a local agent, and during very specified hours. Now you can buy insurance from the comfort of your couch, and at any given time. But is it safe to do so? Allow us to offer some insight that hopefully should put your mind at rest.

Our Verdict: Safe or not!

Online insurance portals are highly safe and since they are just as secure as any other internet shop or service provider, you can confidently share your card details with them. Always choose a reputable, well-known online insurance website where possible: checking Google reviews left by previous users or asking around to make sure it is one you can easily trust with your details.

Benefits of buying car insurance online:

  • In addition to being safe, online insurance enables you to do quick and easy research to not only find the best policy for you but also compare prices to get the best in the market. But you don’t have to do everything alone: some online insurance sellers now also have an extensive team of advisors ready to assist you with any questions you might have to keep that all-important human touch in an online world.
  • A further benefit of online insurance is instant activation. Imagine leaving your car renewal policy to the last minute and missing out on buying car insurance the day before. Online insurance means you can easily head to any RTA vehicle inspection center, and by the time you’re next in line, you would have bought and activated your insurance policy hassle-free!
