    If the comparison sites become marketplaces we might need new comparison sites to compare the marketplaces.

    Only said half in jest.

    I've tended to avoid the price comparison sites anyway. You have to give your entire life history to them before they will you give you a quote, and when you read the small print in the T&Cs, you find that you will be bombarded with junk mail for ever more if you do it.

    I just stick with the old fashioned method of ringing round a few direct insurance companies and a few brokers. It doesn't take many calls to find out what the going rate is.
    If it sticks, force it.
    If it breaks, well it wasn't working right anyway.

    Maybe comparison sites should be comparing the prices of retailers rather than being retailers displaying their own prices instead?
