Use your iPhone to get car insurance

How do you usually buy car insurance? On the phone? On car insurance comparison sites like Moneysupermarket?

Well, now the UK’s leading price comparison site has made it even easier to get cheap cover, especially if you own an iPhone.

The Moneysupermarket car insurance app is the first car insurance comparison app to be launched in the UK. Although it has initially been released for iPhone users only, it’s expected to be made available for Android phones over the next few months.

The free app could help cash-strapped motorists make average car insurance savings of £375 and is remarkably easy to use. Insert all your relevant details and then trawl through the vast array of quotes generated in just a few seconds. Make use of the ‘click to call’ function if you want to talk to a particular insurer and do it over for the phone. Alternatively, though, complete the transaction there and then without needing to go through all the hassle of having to talk to anybody.

Julie Fisher, from Moneysupermarket, commented: “The cost of running a car has been increasing markedly over the last few years, with petrol prices on the up and car insurance a yearly necessity for all drivers.

“People are naturally keen to take action, and shop around to switch to the best possible car insurance deal.

“The launch of the Moneysupermarket car insurance app has made it even easier for people to find the right car cover for the best possible price – allowing people to compare a huge range of quotes quickly and easily – anytime, anywhere. It’s another example of how Moneysupermarket is helping people to make the most of their money.”
