Trying to find lower insurance rates for your Audi 80? Feel like you have high-priced insurance? Don’t sweat it because you’re not alone.
Due to the large number of options when it comes to insurance, it can be impossible to choose the most cost effective company.
Smart consumers take time to do price comparisons every six months because insurance prices tend to go up over time. Even if you think you had the best price for 80 coverage at your last renewal you will most likely find a better rate today. You’ll find quite a bit of inaccurate information about insurance on the internet, but I’m going to show you some great ideas on how to find cheap insurance.
Many insurance companies like State Farm, GEICO and Progressive provide insurance quotes on the web. Getting prices online is fairly simple because you just enter on the page. After the form is submitted, their rating system makes automated requests for credit information and your driving record and gives you a price quote based on these and other factors. This makes it a lot easier to compare rates but the time required to go to multiple sites and type in the same data is monotonous and tiresome. But it’s absolutely necessary to compare as many rates as possible if you are searching for better insurance pricing.
There is a better way to compare rates
A more efficient way to get multiple rate quotes uses one simple form that analyzes rates from a bunch of companies at once. It saves time, eliminates form submissions, and makes comparison shopping a little more enjoyable. Once the form is submitted, it is quoted and you can select your choice of the price quotes you receive.
If the quotes result in lower rates, you can click and sign and buy the policy. The whole process takes just a few minutes to complete and can result in significant savings.

State Farm, GEICO and Progressive regularly use ads on TV and radio. They all have a common claim of big savings after switching your policy. How do they all sell you cheaper insurance coverage? This is the way they can do it.
Different companies have underwriting criteria for the type of driver that makes them money. An example of this type of driver could possibly be married and over the age of 30, has no prior claims, and has great credit. Anybody that matches those criteria is entitled to the best price and most likely will save some money.
People who fall short of these criteria will probably have to pay higher rates which translates to the customer not buying. The ad wording is “customers who switch” not “everybody who quotes” save that kind of money. That is how companies can truthfully advertise the way they do.
This emphasizes why drivers should compare price quotes frequently. It is just not possible to predict with any certainty which company will have the best premium rates.
Companies offering auto insurance do not advertise all disounts very well, so the next list breaks down a few of the more well known and also the lesser-known discounts that you may qualify for. If you do not double check each discount possible, you are just wasting money.
A little note about advertised discounts, some of the credits will not apply to the overall cost of the policy. A few only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. Just because you may think you would end up receiving a 100% discount, company stockholders wouldn’t be very happy.
Some companies that possibly offer these money-saving discounts include:
If you need inexpensive insurance quotes, ask every prospective company which credits you are entitled to. A few discounts may not apply to policies in your area. To find insurers that provide some of the discounts listed above, click here to view.
When buying the best insurance coverage coverage, there really is no single plan that fits everyone. Everyone’s situation is a little different so this has to be addressed. Here are some questions about coverages that can aid in determining whether you might need an agent’s assistance.
If you don’t know the answers to these questions but you think they might apply to your situation, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area.
Learning about specific coverages of auto insurance can be of help when determining the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. These are typical coverages available from auto insurance companies.
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses such as doctor visits, X-ray expenses and prosthetic devices. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Liability insurance protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people in an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have limits of 100/300/100 which stand for $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Alternatively, you may have a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability insurance covers things like repair costs for stationary objects, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, medical expenses, bail bonds and court costs. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as hitting a bird, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from a tornado or hurricane and theft. The highest amount your auto insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against claims like colliding with another moving vehicle, hitting a mailbox, rolling your car and hitting a parking meter. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.
This gives you protection from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
