Trying to find cheaper insurance rates for your Volkswagen Touareg? I really doubt anyone likes paying for insurance, especially knowing the cost is too high. You have so many insurance companies to insure vehicles with, and though it is a good thing to have multiple companies, having more insurance companies makes it harder to find the best rates for your vehicles.
Car insurance companies do not list every disount available in an easy-to-find place, so here is a list some of the more common in addition to some of the lesser obvious discounts that may be available.
One thing to note about discounts is that most credits do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like physical damage coverage or medical payments. Just because you may think you can get free auto insurance, it doesn’t quite work that way.
The best car insurance companies and a selection of discounts include:
If you want affordable insurance quotes, ask every prospective company to give you their best rates. Some discounts listed above might not be offered on policies in your area.
There are multiple methods to compare car insurance prices but there is one way that is less labor-intensive and much quicker. You can waste a lot of time discussing policy coverages with agents in your area, or you can stay home and use online quotes to quickly compare rates.
Many of the larger companies participate in a marketplace where insurance shoppers submit their information once, and each company then returns a price quote based on that information. This eliminates the need for quote requests for every car insurance company.

The single downside to comparing rates this way is you don’t know exactly which insurance companies you want to price. So if you want to choose individual companies to receive pricing from, we put together a list of companies who write car insurance in your area. Click here to view list.
Which method you use is up to you, but try to use nearly identical quote data for each comparison quote. If the quotes have unequal deductibles or liability limits you will not be able to truly determine the lowest rate.
When it comes to buying the right insurance coverage, there is no “best” method to buy coverage. Each situation is unique so this has to be addressed. Here are some questions about coverages that can help discover if you would benefit from professional advice.
If you don’t know the answers to these questions but a few of them apply, 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. It’s fast, doesn’t cost anything and may give you better protection.
Having a good grasp of your policy aids in choosing appropriate coverage at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are the usual coverages offered by auto insurance companies.
Liability – Liability insurance protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show liability limits of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.
Liability coverage pays for claims like legal defense fees, court costs, medical expenses and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – This pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and falling objects. The maximum amount your auto insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Volkswagen Touareg.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.
Insurance for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for bills for funeral costs, doctor visits and dental work. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Collision coverage – This coverage covers damage to your Touareg resulting from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers things like damaging your car on a curb, sustaining damage from a pot hole, backing into a parked car and driving through your garage door. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
