    Thanks for the reply TabbyCat, always nice to see an industry insider comment on the topic.

    A few points however:

    The intention of would not be to get multiple quotes from the same insurer - it would be to get one quote from as many insurance company as possible in a way that protects the cruiser's contact info towards said insurance companies.

    The intention would also not be to compare your quotes to those of your neighbors - it would be to provide more transparency on the trade-offs of the quotes received. Basically listing all the differences and nuances good brokers take into account, maybe make a suggestion but not a decision.

    The underlying idea is that cruisers are more than able to decide for themselves which insurance quote they want to go for when given all the relevant info. In a reputation based business out educating your competitors is both a good marketing strategy and it overcomes the principal-agency problem as well.

    The process would also repeat a few weeks before each renewal date.

    Please feel free to tell me where I go wrong.
