April 30, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
From its inception has worked to be a “one-stop-shop” for drivers seeking to educate themselves about the car insurance industry in order to make the best choices for their automotive insurance needs. Beginning at the end of 2007, the San Jose, California-based site became more reader-centric than ever with an accessible and highly functional news library, research department, and car insurance quite engine. Now, in response to the real-life needs of consumers, has turned to money-saving strategies crucial in an economy teetering on the brink of recession.

“Nobody wants to use the “r” word,” said Jon Davidson, CEO. “But recession is on the mind of every consumer in America. We’re working to put information in the hands of our readers that addresses specific niches like womens automotive insurance, the benefits of carpooling, and special offers like Progressive’s program to give away around $150,000 in free fuel.”

Interestingly, women account for the highest volume of traffic on online car insurance sites, perhaps because their minds turn more toward practical issues of safety and coverage over hot new engines and sexy models on the showroom floor. “Women are coming to our site and they aren’t interested in casual information. They want to comparison shop and leverage their good driving records for the lowest deductibles and premiums with the greatest degree of car insurance rate coverage they can find,” said Davidson. “The women who visit our site definitely keep us playing the game at our highest level. They demand quality data and it’s our responsibility to deliver.”

The high price of gasoline at the pump, now averaging $3.60 a gallon for unleaded regular, is rapidly reviving the concept of the carpool. “Unless you were driving back in the Seventies, you may have heard about a carpool, but have no idea how to get one organized or what insurance benefits or risks you may be taking transporting other people,” said Davidson. “Readers should check out our article ‘Carpooling and the Deep Recession.’ There could even be insurance discounts available to you as a carpooler if you choose to pursue them.”

Price breaks aren’t the only benefits insurance companies are offering today. “Insurers aren’t blind to the state of the economy,” said Davidson. “After data showed that the biggest concern for 70% of truckers is the price of fuel, Progressive started a contest on March 27th to give away free gas. We covered all the details and folks can take a look at for even more information. If you’ve filled your tank lately, you’re ready to put your name in the hat for free gas any time, any place.”
