All is not how it seems


Life it seems revolves around money. When we walk around town or browse our local shopping centre we are engulfed by enticing offers aimed at the money in our pocket. Whilst no one can deny it is a great feeling when you pick up a bargain, what do we lose sight of whilst searching for one?


The internet has undoubtedly transformed the way we approach shopping, making browsing for those bargains more convenient but it can also produce a false sense of security. Nowhere is this more apparent than aggregator sites. Seemingly giving you the opportunity to compare the best deals, it is what you aren't able to compare that should be considered.


The saying, 'if something seems too good to be true it normally is', is worth considering in this instance. The use of clever marketing and attractive advertising portrays that everyone is an expert, having the required expertise to buy their own home and protection products. However in many instances this isn't the case with sites not even providing the information necessary to make an informed choice.


Buying cheap unfortunately does not always mean buying wisely. Cheap can come at a price, a price that normally needs paying at the least convenient of times. It is not uncommon for policies sold through these sites to strip out key areas of cover and include higher excesses payments.


Think before renewing your home insurance and
protection products. It shouldn't be a case of one size fits all; it should be a case of protecting your needs.
