Insurance is not a commodity. You are basically purchasing a promise to pay. The most important consideration when renewing your car insurance is that your insurance company will be there for you when a claim arises. Therefore, always consider an insurance company that won’t let you down during a claims settlement, followed by the coverage options available and the after sales support, THEN compare prices.
