Insurance is neither fun to buy or cheap, but you may find discounts to cut the cost considerably. Some of these disounts will be visible when you purchase, but some need to be specifically requested before being credited.
Keep in mind that most credits do not apply to your bottom line cost. Most only cut the cost of specific coverages such as liability and collision coverage. So even though you would think having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, that’s just not realistic. But any discount will positively reduce your policy premium.
Auto insurance companies that may offer quotes with most of the discounts above are:
Before purchasing a policy, check with each company or agent how many discounts you can get. Depending on the company, some discounts may not apply to policyholders in every state. For a list of providers that have a full spectrum of discounts, follow this link.
There are multiple methods to shop for car insurance, and some are easier and takes less work. You could spend your day talking about coverages with local insurance agents in your area, or you can stay home and use the web to achieve your goal.

Which method you use is up to you, but make sure you compare apples-to-apples coverages and limits for each price quote. If the quotes have different coverage information it will be next to impossible to determine the best price for your Audi TTS.
It’s important that you understand some of the factors that are used to determine the level of your policy premiums. If you understand what determines premiums, this enables you to make decisions that may reward you with lower insurance prices. Many things are part of the equation when pricing auto insurance. Some are pretty understandable like an MVR report, although others are less apparent like your continuous coverage and annual miles driven.
When buying adequate coverage, there is no perfect coverage plan. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s.
Here are some questions about coverages that may help you determine whether you would benefit from an agent’s advice.
If you can’t answer these questions but you know they apply to you then you might want to talk to a licensed agent. If you don’t have a local agent, fill out this quick form. It only takes a few minutes and may give you better protection.
Knowing the specifics of insurance can help you determine the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Uninsured and underinsured coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Audi TTS.
Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Usually these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Liability auto insurance – Liability insurance can cover damage that occurs to a person or their property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have limits of 50/100/50 that means you have a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit that pays claims from the same limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability insurance covers things like pain and suffering, emergency aid and repair costs for stationary objects. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
Collision coverages – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your TTS from colliding with an object or car. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a parking meter, driving through your garage door and hitting a mailbox. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
Coverage for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses like nursing services, prosthetic devices, pain medications and funeral costs. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible
Comprehensive coverages – Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things like a broken windshield, vandalism and damage from flooding. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.

Budget-friendly auto insurance can be bought on the web in addition to many insurance agents, so you should be comparing quotes from both to get a complete price analysis.
