Instant quotes work by assigning a price per mile with a multiplier depending on the size of your car. Most do not factor in the size of he seasonal changes in price, popularity of the route, etc. The price is rarely correct, you either pay too much or you do not pay enough and lose time until the company inevitably comes back to you for more money.
