Looking for cheaper insurance rates, but don’t know where to start? This site claims it can uncover savings on your car insurance.
The Zebra is an insurance search engine and car insurance comparison site that allows users to compare and shop insurance quotes from top national and regional insurance companies. Like other auto insurance quote comparison sites, it’s on a mission to disrupt the insurance industry and empower users to do their own insurance shopping online.
It’s also taken an irreverent approach in tackling the industry:
How does The Zebra work?
Just enter your personal information, including elements of your driving record, and you’ll soon be presented with a variety of car insurance quotes that fit your coverage needs and risk profile. However, your quote list will not necessarily be ranked by price, and some results will appear as unverified rate ranges, so be sure to keep comparing between offers.
Users can alter parameters of what they want out of their auto insurance (say, changing coverage levels, adding or removing roadside assistance coverage, or changing their comprehensive and collision deductible amounts). Your car insurance rates will adjust accordingly.
The Zebra also provides a team of insurance agents who offer customer support and service over the phone.
The Zebra ascribes users an “InsurabilityScore™” which, like a credit score, assesses which elements of their driver profile hinders or helps their overall risk to insurance carriers.
While The Zebra mainly offers only auto insurance quotes, it has also partnered with Hippo and Lemonade to offer homeowners and renters insurance quotes, respectively, to users searching for dwelling insurance deals.
The Zebra Reviews: Here’s what customers are saying…
Customer reviews from around the web indicate that The Zebra’s technology is usually able to present a variety of auto insurance quotes. The site has a 4.7/5 overall satisfaction rating from Shopper Reviewed, based on 837 ratings as of this writing.
The Zebra prides itself on being not a lead generation site, but an auto insurance comparison platform that can also connect you to licensed agents. However, some customers have still reported issues with unwanted phone calls even months after visiting The Zebra.
However, whether this is due to The Zebra’s user experience or customers’ inadvertent use of spammy lead generation or pop-up-heavy sites around the same time is not immediately clear.
Have users been able to secure lower insurance premiums? Active reviewers on Shopper Approved are mostly satisfied:
…but every now and then, customer service qualms persist:
