Do online companies have better prices?

Is pricing better online? It’s difficult to provide an answer because of the number of factors that influence the price you pay. Some people think that purchasing direct online saves money because there is no commission. But the fact is, online and traditional media advertising are expensive so the lack of a commission may be a wash.
What is YOUR best insurance company?

Some auto insurance companies do not offer online quoting and usually these small insurance companies provide coverage only through local independent agents.
