           Where to Look
• There are many comparison websites,
  some specialise in insurance
• Others cover all sorts of shopping
  including insurance.
• Getting the website address correct is
  absolutely critical
• Searching for comparethemarket gives a
  different site to a search for
  comparethemarkets

               Payment
• If you can – pay by credit card – so if
  anything does go wrong you have some
  comeback via your credit card company.

• Your credit card company may contact you
  if you spend over £500 – this is perfectly
  normal. They should just check that you
  have authorised the spend – they should
  not ask you any details about your card.

• Warn your credit card company if you are
  going to make a big purchase.



• It helps them to know if you usually warn
  them about this sort of thing. It helps them
  spot unusual spending patterns.
