Suitable For?

The Zebra is right for homeowners who want to quickly compare insurance quotes from many companies. The Zebra's service is tailored for customers who wish to do their own insurance shopping and get quotes based on their needs.

They also have plenty of options for companies that let you bundle your home and auto policies - , making them attractive for people shopping for discounts. Offering  helpful educational material, the company’s annual State of Auto Insurance reports is a valuable source for those wanting to dive into research and data.

What Coverage Includes

The Zebra reviews and compares home insurance quotes from a variety of insurance companies that provide different types of coverage. While each company has unique policy offerings, you can usually count on them covering the following:

  • Dwelling
  • Other structures
  • Personal property
  • Additional living expenses
  • Personal liability
  • Medical payments

Many companies will outline the difference between:

  • Named perils—where your policy only encompasses named coverages
  • Open perils, which covers hazards not necessarily named on the policy

The Zebra outlines three types of policies their partners cover:

  • HO-2 Policy: This type of policy is the most basic you can get. It typically covers damages from fire, theft, lightning, explosions, riots, and aircraft or vehicle crashes. It covers only named perils
  • HO-3 Policy: Most homeowners in the US get an HO-3 policy, which covers your dwelling, its contents, and other structures on your property. These policies cover some named and open perils
  • HO-5 Policy: An HO-5 policy is the most comprehensive type of home insurance you can get without buying add-ons. It covers all dwellings and personal property on an open peril basis

There are some issues that almost no standard insurance policy will cover. For example, The Zebra's partners do not offer standard coverage for flooding, earthquakes, or neglect. However, you can get these types of policies at an extra cost.

Additional Coverage

While The Zebra does not offer its own riders and other types of additional coverage, many of their partners have comprehensive options for protection of your home and belongings.

Some companies offer:

  • Endorsements and floaters: You can get this rider on your policy to cover your jewelry, money, firearms, watercraft, business property on your premises, electronics, and more. These high-value items are not standard in a homeowner's policy
  • Identity theft: Many of The Zebra's partners offer identity theft insurance as an add-on to protect you from unauthorized access to your credit card or bank information. While each company's policy amount and costs vary, you can expect to pay an average of $25-$65 per year for $15,000 to $30,000 in coverage
  • Flood: You can usually get flood insurance on your policy through FEMA or private insurance companies that offer it
  • Earthquake: If you live in a high-risk earthquake zone, you should add an earthquake rider to your policy

Application Process

Because The Zebra is an independent online insurance comparison site, the actual application takes place on their partners’ websites. The Zebra offers tools and information to help direct you to an application process for an insurance policy.

On their website, The Zebra's quote comparison tool allows you to evaluate quotes from different insurance companies. You start by adding your zip code, which will then take you to the questionnaire.

You'll then enter personal information like the address of the home you want to insure and the type of home you own. You'll also see questions about your home's material, foundation type, proximity to places like fire stations, and if your residence is in a flood zone.

Next, you will answer questions about yourself and provide your credit score. The Zebra uses Insurability Score (click here to read more on their site) to determine your eligibility for specific policies. 

If you have all information on hand, this process will only take you about two minutes. Then, The Zebra reviews top insurance companies like State Farm, Allstate, Liberty Mutual, and USAA to connect you with a policy.


The Zebra doesn't offer discounts as an independent agency, but their partners do.

You can get discounts for:

  • Multi Policy
  • New roof
  • Claims-free
  • Non-smoker
  • New home
  • Automatic and paperless payments
  • Retired
  • Veterans
  • Gated community
  • Occupational

How Safe Is It?

A.M. Best does not have listed ratings for The Zebra, but it has them for their partners. The Zebra works with many insurance companies that have A++, A+or Superior ratings from A.M. Best. Some of these providers include:

  • State Farm
  • Allstate
  • Esurance
  • USAA

The Zebra also does not require you to provide your phone number, which means you don't get spam calls after receiving a quote.

Customer Support

The Zebra's customer support is available from 9:00 am-6:00 pm CST. You can contact them by phone at 1-888-255-4364 or email them at If you Google the company, you will see The Zebra reviews are very positive because of their prompt service.

Once you decide on a policy, you will work with the respective insurer regarding customer service issues. Thankfully, many of The Zebra’s partners also have a good reputation with handling claims.


If you need to compare insurance companies fast, The Zebra has a user-friendly, comprehensive quote comparison tool to help you. Its intelligent toolkit and calculators will assist in determining what policies you need and at what coverage levels.

Above all, The Zebra gives you the independence you want when it comes to shopping for home insurance. The Zebra has many partners with comprehensive policy options, and you only need to fill out a two-minute questionnaire to access them.

    Knowledgeable and Helpful

    You could be waiting a bit before talking to a representative. However once connected, the people at Zebra are very knowledgeable, and also very helpful. I was a little bit leary about using an internet service for an insurance inquiry, but it was a very positive experience.

    Emily was amazing! We had multiple policies to inquire about. She answered all our questions and found my husband and I great new policies. We saved a lot of money with almost identical or better coverage. Totally happy with Zebra! Just happens to be my favorite animal too….

    Website is pretty much useless. Doesn’t give side by side quotes as stated. All it gives is about 2-3 companies for you to visit/call for a price. So what’s the point in that. I can just call each insurance company for a quote.

    Nice website but no quotes given

    The website was friendly to use and simple to input all of the information they required. After finally getting all of that in I was presented with 4 options for insurance. I thought there should have been more having a credit score near 800 and no tickets or accidents in over a decade but I figured I'd continue and see what was offered. Progressive was at the top of the list so I clicked on them and a new link opened to their site. In their site I was directed to fill out all of the exact same information that I had already filled out on the Zebra site. In the end, I never got a quote at all from Zebra and ended up going with an entirely different insurance company altogether. Thanks for nothing Zebra! Nice website though and that's why I gave you 2 stars.

    Zebra is where it’s at!!!!!

    I had a really good experience. The agent I had was amazing. He asked a lot of questions to make sure I got the best coverage for the least amount of damage to my wallet. I’ve never write a review for insurance but I had such a good experience that I just had to leave a review. I was on the phone for about an hour but my agent was very thorough so it was worth the extra time on the phone. Thank you all very much and I will def be referring my family and friends. Zebra is where it’s at!!!!!

    Dreadful Experience

    This site purports to provide you with quotes for insurance. I filled out all requisite information and received no quote. It told me I needed to call to speak with a representative. Upon calling Zebra’s automated system sent me to some company whose name was never clearly annunciated by any of the three employees I had the unfortunate experience of dealing with. They proceeded to tell me they know nothing about the Zebra website and they have zero information to access the alleged quotes that I can’t see. So I filled out all the information only to have to repeat it again to a so-called agent of a totally different company. I would have never given them any of my private information if I had known I would be shuffled off to only the gods know where. Horrible experience all around.

    An Agent that has his act together.

    I was really impressed with the agent that handled our policy for car insurance. Gabrielle far exceeded my expectations for an Agent. He was very patient with my wife and I. He found my wife a great deal with a car insurance company that I really was not expecting. His knowledge and his thoughtfulness blew me away. I was not expecting the quote he came up with i really was bracing for an outrageous figure.What a real professional he was. I have been dealing with agents and service reps for quite a few years and they always were snooty and like the owned the company. Gabrielle is a real genuine down to earth guy. Zebra should be proud of Gabrielle and recognize that they have a special person on there team. Thanks again Gabe for your help and God Bless.

    Just stealing your personal information

    Supposedly you're coming here to get car insurance quotes. The thing is that they take all your personal information and then don't provide you with any actual quotes... if you want a quote you still have to go to each individual company site and type in all the information AGAIN. So what service are they providing? It doesn't seem like the site does anything. It's probably just designed to steal personal information to sell to marketers. (The only actual price they showed me turned out to be horribly wrong -- it was actually more than double on the company website.)
