No, we display by cheapest price first regardless of whether the advertiser is paid for or not. Our Autobot (price fetching) tool ensures we get the latest price from the retailer for you, this ensures no bait and switch, and retailers/manufactures cannot control the prices we display on our site.

Retailers/Advertisers cannot pay to get to the top.

We created the “Autobot” to fetch prices on product pages if they are older than 24hrs.

The price may have updated in between Autobot fetching the price.

The price may be showing in a different currency, as we convert prices into your local currency based on your IP address.

We aren’t in the position currently to offer sponsorship on cars.

Where possible we include prices that include VAT or Sales tax.

However, we are proud to say we have a global audience, so the amount you pay in VAT/Tax may change.

The exact amount will typically show when you go through to a retailers website, add the product to the basket and checkout.
