Car insurance is not cheap, but there could be available discounts that you may not even be aware of. Some discounts will apply at the time of purchase, but some need to be specially asked for before being credited.
As a footnote on discounts, some of the credits will not apply to all coverage premiums. Some only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as medical payments or collision. Despite the appearance that you would end up receiving a 100% discount, it’s just not the way it works.

Lots of factors are part of the calculation when pricing auto insurance. Most are fairly basic such as your driving history, but other criteria are more obscure like where you live or your financial responsibility.
When buying the right insurance coverage, there isn’t really a “perfect” insurance plan. Every insured’s situation is different.
Here are some questions about coverages that can aid in determining whether you would benefit from professional advice.
If it’s difficult to answer those questions but a few of them apply then you might want to talk to a licensed agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, complete this form. It’s fast, doesn’t cost anything and you can get the answers you need.
Consumers can’t avoid all the ads for insurance coverage savings from the likes of Progressive, Geico, Allstate and State Farm. They all seem to state the claim that drivers will save a bundle if you get a free auto insurance quote and switch your coverage.
How does every company charge lower premium rates? You have to listen carefully.
Insurance companies give the cheapest rates for the type of insured that is profitable for them. For example, a driver they prefer might be described as over the age of 50, has had continuous coverage, and drives a safe vehicle. Someone that matches those criteria will probably get the lowest rates and have a good chance to save if they switch.
Consumers who are not a match for the ideal profile must pay higher rates which leads to the customer buying from someone else. Company advertisements say “customers that switch” not “everybody who quotes” save that much money. That’s the way insurance companies can make claims that they all have the best car insurance rates. Different companies use different criteria so drivers should do a rate comparison at every renewal. Because you never know the company that will have the best rates.
Knowing the specifics of your policy can be of help when determining the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.
Liability insurance will cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property that is your fault. It protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see liability limits of 50/100/50 that means you have a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability can pay for claims such as pain and suffering, medical services, funeral expenses and medical expenses. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as much as you can afford.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
This coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Audi TT.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
Collision coverage protection
Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your TT from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers things such as backing into a parked car, driving through your garage door, crashing into a building and hitting a parking meter. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Insurance for medical payments
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for expenses for things like chiropractic care, rehabilitation expenses, hospital visits, EMT expenses and prosthetic devices. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover both the driver and occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like a broken windshield, theft and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Lower-priced insurance coverage is available both online in addition to local insurance agencies, so you should be comparing quotes from both to have the best selection. There are still a few companies who may not provide online price quotes and usually these smaller providers work with independent insurance agencies.
When buying insurance coverage, do not skimp on coverage in order to save money. There are too many instances where an insured cut comprehensive coverage or liability limits and learned later that the savings was not a smart move. Your objective should be to find the BEST coverage for the lowest cost, but don’t skip important coverages to save money.
Consumers leave their current company for any number of reasons including high rates after DUI convictions, denial of a claim, an unsatisfactory settlement offer and even high prices. Regardless of your reason, switching companies can be less work than you think.

Good detail in your article. I live south of Columbia, South Carolina. Got free quotes online for a 2009 Audi TT. Ended up at about $460 savings annually. Went with GEICO. Are quotes cheaper online?
Nice info. Live in Philadelphia, PA. Got rates from 21st Century, Amica, Encompass, and GMAC for my Audi and I think I am saving around $30 each month. Left Mercury to switch. Even increased my liability limits. Not sure if rates are cheaper online or through an agent.
I drive uninsured.
2009 Audi TT + 21st Century = GOOD RATES!
Cheaper car insurance is a myth. I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. Received quotes from State Farm, Auto-Owners, Encompass, and Liberty Mutual for my Audi and I think I cut my rates about $20 each month. Left USAA to switch.
