It’s important to quote other rates occasionally since insurance rates are usually higher with each renewal. Just because you had the lowest premium rates for Eos insurance six months ago other companies may now be cheaper. You can find a lot of information about auto insurance on the web, but in a few minutes you can learn a lot of great tips on how to buy auto insurance cheaper.
Comparing insurance coverage rates is a ton of work if you aren’t aware of the best way to get rate quotes. You can spend countless hours talking to local insurance agents in your area, or you could use online quotes to maximize your effort.
All the larger companies take part in a program where insurance shoppers submit one quote, and at least one company then gives them pricing based on that information. This prevents consumers from doing quote requests to each individual insurance coverage company.

The only drawback to comparing rates this way is you don’t know exactly which carriers to receive prices from. So if you want to select from a list of companies for rate comparison, we have a page of companies who write insurance coverage in your area. Click here to view list.
How you compare quotes is your choice, just be sure you’re using nearly identical quote information with every price quote. If your comparisons have mixed coverages then you won’t be able to determine the best price for your Volkswagen Eos. Just a small difference in coverages could skew the results. It’s important to know that comparing more rates from different companies will enable you to find the best rates. Some insurance companies are not set up to provide online quotes, so it’s important to also get quotes from the smaller companies as well.

Understanding the coverages of auto insurance helps when choosing which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Below you’ll find typical coverage types found on most auto insurance policies.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your 2011 Volkswagen Eos.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Most of the time your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
This covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as theft, hail damage, fire damage, a broken windshield and hitting a deer. The highest amount a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Liability auto insurance
This coverage will cover damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people that is your fault. It protects you against other people’s claims. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see limits of 25/50/25 that translate to a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL which provides one coverage limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability can pay for things like loss of income, emergency aid, funeral expenses, repair costs for stationary objects and bail bonds. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.
Medical expense insurance
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for immediate expenses like EMT expenses, surgery and ambulance fees. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover you and your occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as driving through your garage door, crashing into a building and scraping a guard rail. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. You can also bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
