A more time consuming way to get quotes online is going to each company website and request a quote. For examples sake, let’s say you want to get rates from USAA, Geico and Liberty Mutual.

The least recommended method to compare price estimates is making phone calls or going to each insurance agency near you. Comparing online rate quotes eliminates this option unless you have a complicated situation and need the personal advice of a licensed agent. If you prefer, some companies allow you to get the lowest quotes online and have a local agent actually service the policy.
The approach you take is up to you, just make absolute certain that you use the same deductibles and coverage limits for every company. If you are comparing differing limits it will be very difficult to make a fair comparison for your Audi S4. Even a minor difference in limits may result in a large different in cost. It’s important to know that comparing more rates from different companies helps locate lower pricing.

Having a good grasp of insurance can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Listed below are typical coverage types found on most insurance policies.
Uninsured and underinsured coverage
Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Audi S4.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
This will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as a broken windshield, hail damage and theft. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Liability car insurance
Liability coverage can cover damage that occurs to other people or property by causing an accident. It protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show limits of 100/300/100 which means a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.
Liability coverage protects against things like legal defense fees, medical services, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, emergency aid and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.
Coverage for medical payments
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for bills like EMT expenses, X-ray expenses, doctor visits and ambulance fees. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover you and your occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible
This coverage pays for damage to your S4 resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as backing into a parked car, hitting a mailbox, crashing into a building, crashing into a ditch and damaging your car on a curb. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Do I have to carry car insurance in South Carolina?
Nice post. Proud to be from Reno, NV. Went online for free insurance quotes for a 2001 Audi S4. Ended up at about $90 savings annually. Went with State Farm. Was with The General. God forbid I actually have a claim. Only insure liability on my Audi.
I live on the east side of Miami, Florida. Compared rates from a lot of places. Saved roughly $30 a month. State Farm was the best choice for me. I get lower rates because of my clean driving record. I don’t insure for physical damage though.
Anyone know if 21st Century does SR-22s?
If you’re a decent driver and live in the vicinity of Columbus, Ohio, check out 21st Century. You might get cheaper rates. Was with Allstate. It’s too old for full coverage.
Great info, thanks for posting. I’m in the suburbs of Columbia, SC. Quoted prices online for a 2001 Audi S4. Ended up at about $100 savings annually. Went with Progressive. Insured with Travelers before. I get a discount for insuring multiple vehicles. When should I drop full coverage?

Not sure what I should be paying. I’m just west of Aberdeen, SD. Checked online prices for a 2001 Audi S4. Ended up at about $80 savings annually. Went with 21st Century. Insured with Safeco before. I get multi-vehicle and multi-policy discounts. Online quotes are the way to go. Not worth enough to pay for comprehensive and collision.
Live in the northern part of Providence, Rhode Island. I don’t recall every quote but I ended up saving about $30 each month. I used their online quote form to compare rates. I’m thinking about dropping full coverage though.
I live south of Milwaukee, WI. Quoted with 21st Century, Farmers, and Liberty Mutual for my Audi and am saving around $80 a year.
Great info, thanks for posting. I live north of Charlotte, North Carolina. Got car insurance prices from Auto-Owners, Eastwood, and Safeco for my 2001 Audi S4 and saved just over $110 a year.

$100 to anyone who understands their policy.
