Save on 2016 Volkswagen Golf R Car Insurance Quotes

Online rate comparisons for inexpensive auto insurance can seem difficult if you are someone who has never done price quotes online. Don’t worry though because comparing rates is actually very simple.

Shopping for cheaper car insurance coverage is simple if you know the tricks. Just about every vehicle owner who buys car insurance should be able to cut their insurance bill. But drivers do need to understand the way insurance companies sell online and take advantage of how the system works.

How to get free car insurance quotes online

There are several ways to compare rate quotes from different insurance companies. The easiest way by far to lower the rate you pay for Volkswagen Golf R insurance is to get quotes online. This can be accomplished in a couple of different ways.

  1. The most recommended method consumers can make multiple comparisons is to use a rate comparison form (click to open form in new window). This style of form keeps you from doing repetitive form submissions to each individual car insurance company. One quote request gets coverage cost estimates instantly. This is perfect if you don’t have a lot of time.
  2. A harder way to analyze rates consists of going to each individual company website and complete a new quote form. For sake of this example, we’ll pretend you want to see prices from Allstate, State Farm and Travelers. You would be required to visit each site and punch in your information repeatedly, and that explains why we recommend the first method. To view a list of companies in your area, click here.
  3. If you have time to kill, the last method of getting rate comparisons is to spend time driving to insurance agents’ offices. The ability to get quotes online can eliminate the need for a local agent unless you have a need for the advice and guidance of a local agency. It is possible to price shop your coverage online but buy from a local insurance agent.

Which method you use is up to you, but make sure you compare apples-to-apples quote data on every quote you get. If your comparisons have different data you will not be able to determine the best price for your Volkswagen Golf R. Quoting even small variations in limits may result in a large different in cost. And when comparing car insurance rates, know that comparing a wide range of rates will increase your chances of finding better pricing.

Insurance rates and discounts

Car insurance companies don’t list every possible discount in an easy-to-find place, so here is a list both well-publicized as well as some of the hidden discounts that may be available.

  • Discount for Life Insurance – Some insurance companies give a lower rate if you buy life insurance.
  • Accident Forgiveness – but some insurance companies will forgive one accident without raising rates with the catch being you have to be claim-free for a particular time prior to the accident.
  • Discounts for Multiple Vehicles – Purchasing coverage when you have multiple cars or trucks with one company can get a discount for every vehicle.
  • Full Payment Discount – By paying your policy upfront as opposed to paying monthly you can avoid monthly service charges.
  • Telematics Devices – Insureds that choose to allow their company to scrutinize driving habits through the use of a telematics system such as Progressive’s Snapshot may see discounts if they exhibit good driving behavior.

Keep in mind that some credits don’t apply to the entire policy premium. A few only apply to specific coverage prices like comp or med pay. So even though it sounds like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, it’s just not the way it works.

Companies and their possible discounts include:

  • Farm Bureau offers discounts including renewal discount, youthful driver, driver training, multi-policy, multi-vehicle, and good student.
  • State Farm may offer discounts for multiple policy, passive restraint, accident-free, safe vehicle, good driver, Drive Safe & Save, and student away at school.
  • Progressive offers discounts for continuous coverage, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, online signing, good student, homeowner, and online quote discount.
  • Allstate discounts include FullPay discount, teenSMART discount, 55 and retired, premier discount, and passive restraint.
  • Nationwide includes discounts for business or organization, defensive driving, easy pay, anti-theft, multi-policy, and good student.
  • MetLife may include discounts for good student, good driver, multi-policy, claim-free, accident-free, and defensive driver.

Check with every company which discounts you may be entitled to. All car insurance discounts might not apply in your area. If you would like to see a list of providers that offer some of these discounts, follow this link.

Situations that may require an agent’s advice

When it comes to buying coverage, there is no “perfect” insurance plan. Each situation is unique.

Here are some questions about coverages that might help in determining whether your personal situation might need professional guidance.

  • Am I covered when delivering products for my home-based business?
  • Am I covered when renting a car or should I buy coverage from the car rental agency?
  • Can I afford to buy a different vehicle if my 2016 Volkswagen Golf R is totaled?
  • What is the minimum liability in my state?
  • When would I need additional glass coverage?
  • What can I do if my company denied a claim?
  • What happens if I owe more than my 2016 Volkswagen Golf R is worth?
  • Is my teen driver covered when they drive my company car?
  • How high should deductibles be on a 2016 Volkswagen Golf R?

If you’re not sure about those questions, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed agent. To find an agent in your area, complete this form.

Specific coverage details

Understanding the coverages of car insurance helps when choosing appropriate coverage at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – This coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive can pay for things such as hail damage, hitting a deer, theft and vandalism. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – This coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Volkswagen Golf R.

Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Frequently these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Collision coverages – This will pay to fix damage to your Golf R caused by collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision can pay for things such as colliding with a tree, crashing into a building, damaging your car on a curb, sustaining damage from a pot hole and driving through your garage door. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Liability – Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to people or other property. It protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see limits of 25/50/25 that means you have a limit of $25,000 per injured person, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as medical services, structural damage and pain and suffering. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but consider buying as much as you can afford.

Medical expense insurance – Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for expenses like ambulance fees, pain medications, chiropractic care, EMT expenses and prosthetic devices. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover 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
