Want better auto insurance rates for your Audi Cabriolet? Finding discount auto insurance on the internet may seem to be rather challenging for vehicle owners not familiar with online price comparisons. With so many agents and online companies, how can vehicle owners effectively compare every auto insurance company to find the best pricing?

Finding the best insurance coverage is easy if you know what you’re doing. In a nutshell, anyone who is required by state law to have insurance coverage most likely will be able to save money. Nevertheless, drivers need to have an understanding of the way insurance companies price online insurance and use this information to your advantage.

Buy car insurance online

To find the best car insurance prices, there are several ways of comparing price quotes from all the different companies. The quickest method to do a complete rate comparison consists of obtaining rate quotes online. This can be done in a couple minutes as outlined below.

  1. The easiest and least time consuming way to get the best comparison quotes would be an industry-wide quote request form click to view form in new window. This style of form eliminates the need for boring form submissions for every car insurance company. Completing one form gets coverage cost estimates from multiple low-cost companies. It’s definitely the quickest method.
  2. A slightly less efficient method to find more affordable insurance is to take the time to go to the website of each company and repeat the quote process again and again. For example, let’s say you want to see prices from GEICO, Safeco and Farmers. In order to get each rate, you would have to spend time on each company’s site and repeatedly enter your information, which can take a lot of time. For a list of companies in your area, click here.

However you get your quotes, try to use the same coverage data with every price quote. If you compare different data it will be impossible to make a fair comparison for your Audi Cabriolet. Having just a slight variation in coverages may result in large price differences. And when comparing car insurance rates, know that comparing more rates from different companies helps increase your odds of locating a better price. Some regional insurers cannot provide rate quotes online, so it’s important to compare quotes from them, too.

Discounts can really help lower premiums

Some insurance providers don’t always advertise their entire list of discounts very well, so below is a list both the well known in addition to some of the lesser obvious credits that may apply to you.

  • Federal Government Employee – Federal government employees could cut as much as 10% off for Cabriolet insurance with select insurance companies.
  • Fewer Miles Equal More Savings – Driving fewer miles could be rewarded with cheaper prices.
  • No Claims – Insureds who avoid accidents and claims can earn big discounts compared to policyholders that have many claims.
  • Discount for Swiching Early – A few insurance companies give discounts for switching companies before your current policy expires. It could save around 10% when you buy auto insurance online.
  • Telematics Discount – Drivers who elect to allow their insurance company to track when and where they use their vehicle by using a telematic data system such as Drivewise from Allstate or Snapshot from Progressive could possibly reduce rates if they show good driving skills.
  • Multi-line Discount – Not every insurance company offers life insurance, but if they do you may earn lower prices if you buy auto and life insurance together.
  • Homeowners Savings – Just being a homeowner can save you money because it is proof that your finances are in order.

Don’t be surprised that most discount credits are not given to the entire policy premium. Some only reduce specific coverage prices like medical payments or collision. Even though it appears you could get a free insurance policy, companies don’t profit that way.

A partial list of companies that have these benefits include:

Before you buy a policy, ask all companies you are considering to give you their best rates. Some credits might not be offered on policies in your area. To view companies that provide some of the discounts listed above, follow this link.

Will just any policy work for me?

When it comes to buying the best auto insurance coverage for your vehicles, there isn’t really a one size fits all plan. Each situation is unique.

These are some specific questions can help discover if your situation will benefit from professional help.

  • Do I have coverage when making deliveries for my home business?
  • Do I need more liability coverage?
  • Am I getting all the discounts available?
  • Will my insurance pay for OEM parts?
  • Why do I need rental car insurance?
  • Is upholstery damage covered by car insurance?
  • When would I need additional glass coverage?
  • Is my teenager covered with friends in the car?
  • Am I covered when renting a car or should I buy coverage from the car rental agency?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but you know they apply to you, you might consider talking to a licensed agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form.

Specific coverages for an Audi Cabriolet

Knowing the specifics of auto insurance can be of help when determining the right coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Liability car insurance

Liability insurance protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people in an accident. This coverage protects you against claims from other people, and 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 means you have a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Some companies may use one limit called combined single limit (CSL) that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as structural damage, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and pain and suffering. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but consider buying as much as you can afford.

Comprehensive auto insurance

This coverage will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as falling objects, vandalism, hitting a deer, hitting a bird and damage from flooding. The maximum payout a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers

This provides protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Collision coverage protection

Collision insurance covers damage to your Cabriolet resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for claims such as hitting a mailbox, sustaining damage from a pot hole, colliding with a tree and damaging your car on a curb. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Another option is to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Coverage for medical expenses

Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for bills for things like rehabilitation expenses, EMT expenses and pain medications. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover both the driver and occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
