How do I buy car insurance online?

I'm saving up for a new car at the moment, and I'm starting to shop around for insurance. However, I live in a very rural area, which means I'm going to have to look exclusively online, but I'm not even sure where to begin. How do I buy car insurance online?

“The best way to start is to figure out what type of coverage works best for you and to go from there.
Each state has their own minimum insurance requirements, which is usually liability insurance. Often these requirements aren’t sufficient for every driving situation.
For example, living in a rural area might mean that you want to be covered in the event that you hit a deer, which would mean you need comprehensive coverage.
Adding extra coverage does mean it’s more expensive, but having peace of mind doesn’t have to break the bank. Using free tools like Jerry can help you find the provider that will offer you the best deal, as well as help you figure out what other coverage you might need—we’ll get you free quotes from multiple providers instantly, so you can sit back and simply choose the option that suits your needs best!”
