Today you can contact your broker with an e-mail and he/she gets back to you whenever he/she can. You can have a chat online with your insurer directly or submit claims online.

Not only internet is there but it is highly relied upon by both policyholders and insurers. Because of it car insurance rates are kept low and customer satisfaction has been increased. So, it is the undisputed direction and most relied upon tool from now onward.
We at MiRegions believe that customers should make the most of information available to them and pick the best policy packages that satisfy their requirements. This doesn’t mean that you should give up on brokers. Losing independent brokers from the market will be sad in many ways. They are the real source of advice and personal packaging of policies.
When you call a company they are bound to blow their own horns. But brokers can tell you as it is since they will get paid commission regardless of which company they go to. In other words they offer a level of scrutiny on companies and they still heavily rely on them. So, it would be a good idea to see if you can build good relations with a good broker.
However, they are hard to come by as well. They can get too big for their own goods and turn into policy selling machines. Therefore, you should look at your options from all the available sources and get yourself informed as well. This way you would be well equipped to deal with any issues relating to your policy and claim and can tell when you are given a good advice.
It is important that you get involved and ready to have a good look at your options. We all love to save money and this is possible without making compromises on the level of protection or choice of companies.
