Insurance Comparison in Ireland is largely controlled by insurance brokerages behind closed doors, with little to no public comparison available.
In larger markets, there are companies who take it upon themselves to compare and contrast various insurance policies and companies.
In the USA they use the JD Power Score, and in the UK they have which.co.uk. In Ireland, impartial insurance comparison does not exist for many products. Health insurance has good comparisons, such as the HIA and programs on Newstalk such as “Ask the Expert”, but most insurance products and companies are lacking any real comparison.
This leaves the consumer with very few options when it comes to researching the various options available to them.
