who request both car and home insurance quotations will double their chances of
winning. It's that simple!

Debra Williams, managing director, comments:
" has saved millions of people time and money when it comes to searching
for insurance. The belief that price comparison services are beneficial to consumers
forms the basis of this radical 1,000,000 giveaway. We aim to appeal to the
unconverted - those who rarely change providers, or rarely use the internet - and
show them how much time and money they could save as a result of quoting online."

"The insurance industry is rapidly evolving which, for consumers, means that
increased competition is continuously driving down prices. However, many consumers
fail to capitalise on such savings, due to either loyalty to their existing insurer,
or even general apathy; 30% of consumers typically renew their car insurance without even shopping around".
