Insurance

One of the problems we all face is that we know we need to buy insurance, but we never really get around to it properly. In fact, most of us a grossly underinsured by any reasonable standard.

 

One reason for this is that going out and looking for it is a real pain. It takes time, you're subject to and endless series of sales pitches from glib characters and it is, in effect, all so damn boring.

Which is there the net can help out. Firstly, we can go looking for our necessary life insurance quotes without actually having to leave home. Much more convenient that. Secondly, we spared the salesmen, we just get the quote on our car insurance delivered to us. Thirdly, once we've got all of our household insurance quotes we can actually read them, find out what is really being offered and make a decision without any pressure.

Thank goodness Al Gore really did invent the internet (and Tim Berner's Lee the Web) so that we can in fact buy these essentials at our own pace and, blissfully, without having to deal with insurance salesmen.

As the population has gotten older, the need for health insurance has increased. Despite possible changes in the regulatory environment, healthcare is expected to continue its rapid expansion.
