Cheap 1999 Volkswagen New Beetle Insurance Quotes

If you are new to getting insurance quotes online, most likely you are bewildered by the vast number of local and online companies offering coverage.

It’s a good idea to get comparison quotes occasionally because prices trend upward over time. Just because you had the best rate for New Beetle insurance last year you will most likely find a better premium rate today. Block out anything you think you know about car insurance because it’s time to teach you the proper way to save money, get proper coverage and the best rates.

If you currently have car insurance, you should be able to reduce your rates substantially using this strategy. The purpose of this post is to introduce you to how to get online quotes and some tips to save money. Nevertheless, car owners need to have an understanding of how big insurance companies price insurance differently and take advantage of how the system works.

Compare free auto insurance rate quotes

To find cheaper rates, there are a couple of ways of comparing rates from local auto insurance companies. The best way to compare 1999 Volkswagen New Beetle insurance prices consists of shopping online. This can be done by using one of the methods below.

  • If you are pressed for time, the simplest way to find low rates is an all-inclusive rate comparison like this one (opens in new window). This quick form saves time by eliminating multiple quote forms for every company. A single form gets you coverage quotes from all major companies. This is perfect if you don’t have a lot of time.
  • A harder way to get comparison quotes requires you to visit the website of each company and get a separate price quote. For instance, let’s say you want to see prices from Progressive, Esurance and American Family. In order to compare rates, you need to spend time going to each site individually to enter your coverage information, which can get rather old. To view a list of companies in your area, click here.

Whichever method you choose, make sure you are using identical information with each company. If you compare different values for each quote then you won’t be able to make an equal comparison. Slightly different coverages can make a big difference in price. It’s important to know that comparing a wide range of rates gives you a better chance of getting a lower rate than you’re paying now. Not every company does online quotes, so it’s important to compare price estimates on coverage from those companies, too.

Find discounts on insurance coverage

Companies don’t necessarily list the complete list of policy discounts very clearly, so below is a list a few of the more common and also the more inconspicuous discounts that may be available.

  • Savings for New Vehicles – Insuring a new car can cost up to 25% less because newer vehicles keep occupants safer.
  • Renewal Discounts – A few companies allow discounts for buying a new policy before your current coverage expires. This can save 10% or more.
  • Discount for Passive Restraints – Vehicles with factory air bags or automatic seat belts can receive discounts of 20% or more.
  • Good Grades Discount – Being a good student may save as much as 25% on a insurance quote. Earning this discount can benefit you up to age 25.
  • ABS and Traction Control Discounts – Cars with ABS and/or traction control can reduce accidents so you can save 10 percent or more.

Discounts save money, but please remember that some credits don’t apply to the entire cost. Some only apply to individual premiums such as liability and collision coverage. So despite the fact that it appears adding up those discounts means a free policy, companies wouldn’t make money that way.

A list of insurance coverage companies and a summarized list of policyholder discounts are outlined below.

  • American Family may offer discounts for defensive driver, air bags, good student, early bird, good driver, and TimeAway discount.
  • State Farm includes discounts for good student, student away at school, multiple autos, accident-free, Drive Safe & Save, and passive restraint.
  • 21st Century offers discounts including air bags, student driver, homeowners, 55 and older, good student, and defensive driver.
  • Travelers policyholders can earn discounts including continuous insurance, multi-car, driver training, save driver, payment discounts, student away at school, and early quote.
  • GEICO has savings for five-year accident-free, multi-policy, multi-vehicle, emergency military deployment, and driver training.

Before buying, ask all the companies which credits you are entitled to. Some discounts might not apply in your area. To choose insurance coverage companies who offer discounts, click here.

Tailor your car insurance coverage to you

When it comes to choosing the right insurance coverage for your vehicles, there really is no single plan that fits everyone. Everyone’s situation is a little different.

These are some specific questions can help discover whether you might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Is my babysitter covered when using my vehicle?
  • Do I need rental car coverage?
  • Does coverage extend to Mexico or Canada?
  • Can I get a multi-policy discount for packaging my home and auto coverage?
  • How can I force my company to pay a claim?
  • How do I buy GAP insurance?
  • When do I need to add a new car to my policy?
  • Are my friends covered when driving my car?
  • Is my camper covered by my car insurance policy?
  • Am I covered if hit by an uninsured driver?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, fill out this quick form.

Coverages available on your car insurance policy

Knowing the specifics of a car insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Medical expense insurance

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for expenses for things like dental work, ambulance fees, EMT expenses and pain medications. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a bird, hail damage and fire damage. The highest amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

This coverage provides protection when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Volkswagen New Beetle.

Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Auto liability insurance

This coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property in an accident. It protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see limits of 25/50/25 which means a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage protects against things such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, loss of income, legal defense fees and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision insurance

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision can pay for things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, colliding with a tree and backing into a parked car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.

    Thought I’d throw in my experience. Proud to be from Rio Rancho, New Mexico. Quoted with State Farm, AIG Insurance, and some I forget for my Volkswagen and I think I cut my rates about $10 each month. I get multi-vehicle and multi-policy discounts. I used their online quote form to compare rates. I don’t put full coverage on it.

    I live east of Eugene, OR. Got rates from Amica, Mercury, and some smaller one I can’t remember the name of for my New Beetle and cut my rates about $80 a year. BTW speeding tickets are not good. Wish I didn’t have to insure at all. Liability only on my Volkswagen.

    Cheaper not always better. I’m from Honolulu, HI. Quoted rates from Allstate, AAA, and some I forget for my Volkswagen and saved just over $110 a year. Insured with AIG Insurance before. BTW speeding tickets are not good. I got a quote from their website. I dropped full coverage awhile back.
