Easy quote from homepage
QuoteWright.com has set up their site very simply. The homepage features a quote engine in the top left, the most prominent spot on most web pages. The quote engine also asks for minimal information, which leads the customer down an easy path to an insurance quote.
The field for travel dates does feature a calendar function, which is much better than using pick lists for dates. However, when used in Firefox or Safari, the pop-up calendar has contrast issues and you cannot read some buttons.
They also ask for the type of travel insurance you are interested in, which can be a little confusing for first time buyers. They√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢re not sure what type of insurance they need.

Quote engine remembers previously entered information
In the next step, you are asked for some more information, such as State of residence, ages of travelers, your destination, and date of first trip payment. The other fields, such as travel dates and Country of Residence, are auto-filled for you.
Compare policy screen features a √¢‚Ç¨≈ìSort By√¢‚Ç¨? function
The next step shows all the different policies offered by the different travel insurance companies. You can select some by checking the boxes on the left, and proceed to a side-by-side comparison. You can also sort these results using different criteria, such as policy cost, plan type, and different coverage limits. This is helpful in finding the right policy for your trip, without sorting through inappropriate policies.

Side-by-side lets you compare policies quickly
If you proceed to the side-by-side comparison, you will see the policy names listed across the top, and the policy benefits listed down the left column. The benefits on the left are clickable terms, so you can fully understand the different policies. When they are clicked, however, the page is refreshed and the definition of the clicked term is written in a vertical column. This is difficult to read and time consuming to click back and forth. Opening a new, smaller window might be easier.
