Why pay more for car warranties?

By: Keith Barrett

This is an industry that has been dominated for many years by car dealerships, showrooms and the emerging car supermarkets. Those establishments have spent a lot of money on advertising, putting themselves in a great position to sell a wide range of products.

Although this may be great for the owners of such companies, has this been great news for consumers? There is a feeling among many car owners that cheaper deals should be available.

An obvious alternative would be to attempt to purchase an agreement from an independent car warranty firm. That way, you might get an extended deal on your Ford, for instance, at a much lower price.

Approaching specialist firms hasn't always been easy.

Their lower advertising budgets have often led to them having a relatively low profile. They've seemingly been happy for others to sell their policies, adding on a premium in the process.

Times are now starting to change and warranty firms have started to look at the internet as a way of reaching out to new customers. Why pay others commissions to sell products that they can now sell directly?

By selling online, they've realised that they can dramatically reduce their costs. They're also aware that passing on those lower costs to car owners could help them to attract many more customers.

What does this mean for UK car owners?

In essence, it suggests that many of us could save money by buying warranties online, rather than by visiting our local car dealership.

With lower prices available online and the ability to compare offerings more easily, there is no doubt that significant savings could be made.
