These discounts can lower car insurance rates

Companies offering auto insurance don’t always list every available discount in an easy-to-find place, so the list below details both well-publicized and also the lesser-known credits available to bring down your rates.

  • Federal Employees – Federal government employees can save as much as 8% for A8 coverage with select insurance companies.
  • Life Insurance – Some insurance carriers give lower premium rates if you buy some life insurance in addition to your auto policy.
  • Online Discount – A handful of insurance companies will provide an incentive for buying your policy on your computer.
  • Own a Home – Simply owning a home can save a few bucks because of the fact that having a home means you have a higher level of financial diligence.
  • Passive Restraint Discount – Vehicles with factory air bags or automatic seat belts may get savings of 20% or more.

As is typical with insurance, most credits do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Some only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like comprehensive or collision. Even though it may seem like adding up those discounts means a free policy, it just doesn’t work that way. Any qualifying discounts will lower your policy premiums.

A few popular companies and a summarized list of policyholder discounts can be found below.

  • State Farm may have discounts that include defensive driving training, good driver, safe vehicle, student away at school, and multiple policy.
  • GEICO may offer discounts for daytime running lights, anti-lock brakes, membership and employees, driver training, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and air bags.
  • Liberty Mutual offers discounts for multi-policy, new graduate, new move discount, new vehicle discount, teen driver discount, and good student.
  • The Hartford includes discounts for air bag, defensive driver, bundle, driver training, good student, and vehicle fuel type.
  • MetLife may include discounts for good student, defensive driver, good driver, accident-free, claim-free, multi-policy
  • Progressive has discounts for online quote discount, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, continuous coverage, homeowner, and online signing.

What determines Audi A8 insurance costs?

Lots of things are considered when you quote your car insurance policy. Some factors are common sense like your driving record, but other criteria are more transparent such as whether you are married or your financial responsibility.

  • Vehicle options impact rates – Purchasing a vehicle with advanced anti-theft systems can get you a discount on your insurance coverage. Anti-theft devices like tamper alarm systems, vehicle immobilizer technology and General Motors OnStar can thwart auto theft and help lower rates.
  • Costs may be higher where you live – Choosing to live in areas with lower population can be a good thing if you are looking for the lowest rates. City drivers tend to have more auto accidents and more time behind the wheel. Fewer drivers means fewer accidents in addition to lower liability claims
  • How many coverages with the same company – Most insurance coverage companies provide a discount to policyholders who buy several policies from them in the form of a multi-policy discount. Discounts can add up to as much as ten percent or more Even with this discount applied, it’s in your best interest to shop around to make sure you are getting the best deal. Drivers may still save more without the discount by buying from different companies
  • High deductibles reduce rates – Deductibles for physical damage are the amount of money you are willing to pay out-of-pocket in the event of a claim. Physical damage protection, also called ‘full coverage’, protects your car from damage. Some examples of claims that would be covered could be a windshield broken by a bird, fire damage, or theft of your vehicle. The more the insured is willing to pay, the better rate you will receive for A8 coverage.
  • Bad driving leads to higher premiums – Careful drivers tend to pay less for car insurance compared to drivers with tickets. Even a single chargable violation can bump up the cost by as much as thirty percent. Drivers who have serious violations such as hit and run, DWI or reckless driving convictions may find they need to file a proof of financial responsibility form (SR-22) with their state in order to prevent a license revocation.
  • Do you know you’re credit history? – A driver’s credit score can be a huge factor in calculating your insurance coverage rates. Insureds that have good credit tend to be better drivers and file fewer claims than those with worse credit. If your credit rating is not that good, you could save money insuring your 2014 Audi A8 by improving your credit score.
  • Drive less and get lower prices – Driving a lot of miles in a year’s time the more you’ll pay to insure your vehicle. Most insurance companies calculate prices based on how the vehicle is used. Cars and trucks that do not get driven very much receive better premium rates compared to those used for work or business. Having an incorrect usage rating on your A8 is throwing money out the window. Make sure your insurance coverage coverage reflects the correct driver usage, because improper ratings can cost you money.

When do I need an agent’s advice?

When buying coverage, there is no “best” method to buy coverage. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s.

For instance, these questions can aid in determining if your situation would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • What is PIP insurance?
  • How do I insure my teen driver?
  • Am I covered by my spouse’s policy after a separation?
  • Is pleasure use cheaper than using my 2014 Audi A8 to commute?
  • Can I still get insurance after a DUI?
  • What is covered by UM/UIM coverage?
  • Do I need to file an SR-22 for a DUI in my state?

If you can’t answer these questions but you think they might apply to your situation then you might want to talk to a licensed insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, fill out this quick form. It is quick, free and you can get the answers you need.

Information about specific coverages

Having a good grasp of your insurance policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.

Coverage for medical expenses – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for prosthetic devices, X-ray expenses and surgery. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible

Comprehensive insurance – This coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims like vandalism, damage from getting keyed, hitting a bird and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your 2014 Audi A8.

Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is very important. Frequently these coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Liability car insurance – Liability coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see policy limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a limit of $100,000 per injured person, $300,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Occasionally you may see a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.

Liability coverage pays for claims such as medical expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, legal defense fees and structural damage. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.

Collision – Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your A8 resulting from colliding 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 crashing into a ditch, damaging your car on a curb and driving through your garage door. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Stretch your dollar

While you’re price shopping online, it’s not a good idea to skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. In many cases, someone dropped physical damage coverage only to regret that it was a big mistake. Your focus should be to find the BEST coverage at the best possible price.

More affordable insurance coverage is possible from both online companies and from local insurance agents, so you need to quote insurance coverage with both to have the best rate selection. Some insurance providers don’t offer the ability to get quotes online and usually these regional insurance providers only sell through independent agents.

Consumers who switch companies do it for any number of reasons including an unsatisfactory settlement offer, high rates after DUI convictions, policy non-renewal or poor customer service. Whatever your reason, switching companies is less work than it seems.
