Car insurance coverages for an Audi A6

Understanding the coverages of your auto insurance policy aids in choosing appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – This coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as hitting a deer, damage from getting keyed, vandalism and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The most your auto insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.

Collision coverages – Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision can pay for things like crashing into a ditch, rolling your car, damaging your car on a curb, sideswiping another vehicle and hitting a parking meter. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Liability coverage – This can cover damage that occurs to other people or property. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have liability limits of 25/50/25 that means you have a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.

Liability insurance covers things like court costs, medical services, legal defense fees and funeral expenses. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but buy as much as you can afford.

Medical costs insurance – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for expenses such as EMT expenses, pain medications and funeral costs. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

UM/UIM Coverage – This coverage gives you protection when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Audi A6.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important. Normally the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

More quotes. Lower rates.

People who switch companies do it for a variety of reasons including lack of trust in their agent, questionable increases in premium, extreme rates for teen drivers and policy non-renewal. It doesn’t matter why you want to switch choosing a new company can be less work than you think.

While you’re price shopping online, it’s a bad idea to reduce needed coverages to save money. There are too many instances where an insured dropped liability coverage limits and found out when filing a claim that the few dollars in savings costed them thousands. Your objective should be to buy enough coverage at the best price, but do not skimp to save money.

Cheap 2011 Audi A6 insurance can be bought online as well as from insurance agents, so you need to shop car insurance with both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some companies do not offer internet price quotes and these small, regional companies prefer to sell through independent agencies.
