Cheaper 2017 Audi SQ5 Car Insurance Rates

Have you had enough of wondering where the money will come from to pay car insurance each month? You’re in the same situation as many other drivers.

You have multiple car insurance companies to insure vehicles with, and even though it’s nice to have a selection, lots of choices makes it harder to adequately compare rates.

Finding the best rates is quite easy. Essentially every vehicle owner who carries insurance coverage should be able to save money. Although drivers must know how big insurance companies price insurance differently.

Compare free car insurance quotes

There are several ways of comparing rates from lots of car insurance companies. The easiest way to do a complete rate comparison consists of shopping online. This can be accomplished in just a few minutes using one of these methods.

  • The easiest and least time consuming way to get quotes for comparison is to use a rate comparison form like this one (opens in new window). This form saves time by eliminating boring form submissions for every car insurance company. In just a few minutes this one form will get you rate comparisons from multiple low-cost companies.
  • A different way to find more affordable insurance is going to each individual company website and fill out their own quote form. For instance, let’s assume you need rates from Progressive, Farmers and Liberty Mutual. You would be required to take the time to go to each site and repeatedly enter your information, which explains why we recommend starting with the first method.

You can use whichever method you prefer to find lower rates, just ensure you’re using exactly the same coverage information with every price quote. If each company quotes different coverage information it will be next to impossible to determine which rate is truly the best. Quoting even small variations in coverages may result in large price differences. Just keep in mind that comparing a wide range of rates will enable you to find the best rates.

Save money with these insurance discounts

Some providers don’t list every discount they offer in a way that’s easy to find, so the below list has both the well known in addition to some of the lesser obvious credits that you can use to lower your rates.

  • College Student – College-age children who are enrolled in a college that is more than 100 miles from home without a vehicle on campus could qualify for this discount.
  • Homeowners Savings – Owning a home can get you a discount because it is proof of financial responsibility.
  • Auto/Life Discount – Select companies reward you with a discount if you purchase life insurance.
  • Save with More Vehicles Insured – Purchasing coverage when you have multiple vehicles with one company can reduce the rates for all insured vehicles.
  • Student Discount for Driver Training – Have your child sucessfully take a drivers education course in school or through a local driver safety program.
  • Clubs and Organizations – Affiliation with qualifying employment or professional organizations may earn a discount when getting a auto insurance quote.
  • ABS Braking Discount – Anti-lock brake equipped vehicles are much safer to drive so companies give up to a 10% discount.
  • Telematics Devices – Drivers who agree to allow their insurance company to study vehicle usage by using a telematic data system such as In-Drive from State Farm or Allstate’s Drivewise system could see a rate decrease if their driving habits are good.

Don’t be shocked that most credits do not apply to the entire policy premium. The majority will only reduce individual premiums such as physical damage coverage or medical payments. So despite the fact that it appears adding up those discounts means a free policy, company stockholders wouldn’t be very happy.

A list of companies and some of the premium reductions they offer are outlined below.

  • Progressive may offer discounts for online signing, continuous coverage, online quote discount, multi-policy, and good student.
  • MetLife includes discounts for good driver, claim-free, multi-policy, good student, and defensive driver.
  • Mercury Insurance offers premium reductions for professional/association, age of vehicle, good driver, low natural disaster claims, location of vehicle, multi-policy, and ease of repair.
  • Nationwide offers discounts including family plan, easy pay, multi-policy, Farm Bureau membership, and defensive driving.
  • GEICO may have discounts that include anti-lock brakes, five-year accident-free, defensive driver, military active duty, emergency military deployment, and membership and employees.
  • AAA has savings for good driver, multi-car, good student, multi-policy, AAA membership discount, and anti-theft.

When getting a coverage quote, ask every prospective company what discounts are available to you. Some of the earlier mentioned discounts might not be offered on policies everywhere. To see a list of providers that provide some of the discounts listed above, click here to view.

Auto insurance can get complicated

When choosing the right insurance coverage for your vehicles, there really is no “best” method to buy coverage. Each situation is unique and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. These are some specific questions might help in determining whether your personal situation might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Will my rates increase for filing one claim?
  • Am I insured when driving a different vehicle?
  • Is a blown tire covered by insurance?
  • Does coverage extend to Mexico or Canada?
  • Am I covered when delivering products for my home-based business?
  • What is PIP insurance?
  • How high should deductibles be on a 2017 Audi SQ5?
  • Should I buy more coverage than the required minimum liability coverage?
  • Does my insurance cover damage caused when ticketed for reckless driving?

If you’re not sure about those questions but a few of them apply, you may need to chat with a licensed agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, simply complete this short form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier

Get lower-cost insurance premiums by understanding these factors

Many different elements are part of the calculation when pricing auto insurance. Some are pretty understandable like your driving record, although others are not as apparent like your vehicle usage and annual miles driven.

  • Put fewer miles on your vehicle – The more you drive your Audi every year the more you’ll pay to insure it. Many insurance companies calculate rates based on their usage. Vehicles left parked in the garage receive lower rates than those used for commuting. Having an incorrect usage rating on your SQ5 can cost quite a bit. It’s a good idea to make sure your auto insurance declarations sheet is showing the proper vehicle usage.
  • Being married equates to better rates – Being married may save some money on your policy. Having a significant other means you’re less irresponsible and it’s statistically proven that married drivers tend to have fewer serious accidents.
  • Liability is important – Your policy’s liability coverage is the protection if a jury decides you are liable for causing damage or personal injury in an accident. Your policy’s liability insurance provides legal defense coverage up to the limits shown on your policy. This coverage is relatively inexpensive compared to comp and collision, so drivers should make sure they buy enough to cover all assets.
  • Gaps in coverage mean higher prices – Having a lapse in insurance coverage is a fast way to increase your auto insurance rates. And not only will insurance be more expensive, being ticketed for driving with no insurance might get you a revoked license or a big fine.
  • Bad credit will cost you – Having a good credit score is a big factor in determining what you pay. People with good credit tend to be more responsible than drivers who have lower credit scores. If your credit history leaves room for improvement, you could potentially save money when insuring your 2017 Audi SQ5 by repairing your credit.
  • How your age affects rates – Teenage drivers are known to be less responsible when driving therefore auto insurance rates are much higher. More experienced drivers are viewed as being more responsible, cost insurance companies less in claims .
  • Your address can affect prices – Living in a rural area is a good thing when insuring your vehicles. Fewer people means reduced accidents and also fewer theft and vandalism claims. Drivers in populated areas tend to have more auto accidents and a longer drive to work. More time commuting statistically corresponds to a higher accident and claim rate.

Coverages available on your policy

Having a good grasp of a insurance policy aids in choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Shown next are the usual coverages found on most insurance policies.

Liability

Liability insurance will cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property that is your fault. It protects YOU from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have limits of 50/100/50 that translate to a limit of $50,000 per injured person, $100,000 for the entire accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.

Liability insurance covers things such as funeral expenses, bail bonds, structural damage, loss of income and medical services. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but consider buying as much as you can afford.

Coverage for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for short-term medical expenses for things like nursing services, pain medications, chiropractic care and surgery. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Comprehensive coverages

Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as damage from flooding, a broken windshield and hitting a deer. The most your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.

Auto collision coverage

This pays for damage to your SQ5 from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision can pay for things such as driving through your garage door, damaging your car on a curb, scraping a guard rail, rolling your car and colliding with a tree. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your 2017 Audi SQ5.

Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.

Online plus local equals savings

Low-cost 2017 Audi SQ5 insurance can be sourced both online as well as from independent agents, and you should compare rates from both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some companies don’t offer the ability to get quotes online and many times these regional insurance providers provide coverage only through local independent agencies.

We just covered a lot of ways to shop for 2017 Audi SQ5 insurance online. The key concept to understand is the more companies you get auto insurance rates for, the better chance you’ll have of finding the cheapest auto insurance. Consumers may even find the lowest rates come from a small local company. Some small companies may have significantly lower auto insurance rates on certain market segments than the large multi-state companies such as GEICO and State Farm.
