Paying too much for car warranty?

By: Keith Barrett

This is a sector that has long been dominated by car retailers, such as dealerships, showrooms and popular car supermarkets. Indeed, it may be that you choose to visit such places to purchase car warranty policies.

Such a decision, to buy from a trusted vehicle retailer, may seem sensible but it could be costing you more money than it should. You're not alone - many UK consumers decide to buy policies from such retailers, without taking the opportunity to see what other deals are available.

The underlying problem is that many people are unaware that there are other options available to them. Independent car warranty companies have been keen to sell their policies via dealerships, rather than engage directly with car owners.

This approach seems to have led to policies being sold at higher prices than might be expected.

In effect, many local retailers have cornered the market.

With consumers unable to shop around, often because of a lack of awareness of the other options available, many have been unaware that better deals could be found elsewhere.

Independent car warranty companies have finally started to wake up to the situation, with a number of them now offering UK car owners the opportunity to purchase warranty policies online. Such offerings promise greater clarity and, crucially for many of us, the possibility of lower warranty costs.

If you want to take advantage of the more competitive pricing that's now available then it's vital that you spend time researching the policies available and their respective costs.

Getting the right warranty for your vehicle should involve examining the costs involved and the standard of cover on offer.

By comparing prices online and buying policies direct from warranty specialists, you'll find that you'll be able to cut out the middleman and make some significant savings.

Some analysts are suggesting that buying warranty online could save you up to 50% on the cost of your policy.

Now's the perfect time to start saving money!
