The Policy

How soon will my insurance coverage begin if I make the purchase online?

Of course this will depend on the provider and also on the terms of the policy. All policies will have a beginning of coverage date, so make sure that the online seller provides you with this information. You can usually print our proof of coverage once you have completed your purchase online.

Do online insurance companies have agents?

All insurance sellers, both online and not online, will be required by law to use registered insurance agents to sell you insurance. In the online environment, you may be in contact with your agent by email or an online chat system. The agent is hidden behind the website, but they are still there. You may even be able to call them on the phone, so check with your provider on this.
