Do you qualify for discount auto insurance?

Auto insurance is not cheap nor is it fun to buy but you may find discounts that may help make it more affordable. A few discounts will automatically apply when you get a quote, but a few must be asked for before being credited.

  • Military Discounts – Having a family member in the military can result in better auto insurance rates.
  • College Student Discount – Any of your kids who live away from home at college and don’t have a car could get you a discount.
  • Senior Citizen Discount – Mature drivers can get a discount up to 10% on Q7 insurance.
  • Multiple Policy Discount – If you can combine your home and auto policy and insure them both with the same insurance company you may earn nearly 15% which can help you find low cost car insurance.
  • Low Mileage Discounts – Driving fewer miles can qualify you for lower rates on the low mileage vehicles.
  • Early Signing – Some insurance companies give discounts for switching to them before your current coverage expires. You could save around 10% when you buy car insurance online.
  • Discounts for Government Workers – Being employed by or retired from a federal job could cut as much as 10% off on Q7 insurance but check with your company.

Keep in mind that most discounts do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Some only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like collision or personal injury protection. Even though it appears all the discounts add up to a free policy, companies wouldn’t make money that way.

Some of the insurance companies that may offer policyholders some of the discounts shown above may include but are not limited to:

Before buying, ask all companies you are considering to apply every possible discount. Some discounts may not be offered in your area. If you would like to view providers who offer auto insurance discounts, click this link.

What insurance coverages do I need?

When it comes to buying proper insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is not a best way to insure your cars. Every insured’s situation is different and your policy should reflect that. For example, these questions can aid in determining whether or not you would benefit from professional advice.

  • What discounts do I qualify for?
  • Does my policy pay for OEM or aftermarket parts?
  • If my 2013 Audi Q7 is totaled, can I afford another vehicle?
  • Will I be non-renewed for getting a DUI or other conviction?
  • At what point should I drop full coverage?
  • Which is better, split liability limits or combined limits?
  • Should I buy full coverage?

If you’re not sure about those questions but you think they might apply to your situation then you might want to talk to an insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, simply complete this short form or go to this page to view a list of companies.

Auto insurance specifics

Understanding the coverages of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Listed below are typical coverage types found on most auto insurance policies.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as damage from getting keyed, theft and hitting a bird. The most a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.

Insurance for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage pay for short-term medical expenses such as ambulance fees, chiropractic care, funeral costs, dental work and hospital visits. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Coverage for liability

Liability insurance will cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property in an accident. It protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see limits of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 bodily injury coverage, $50,000 for the entire accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery.

Liability coverage pays for things such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, loss of income, pain and suffering, emergency aid and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.

Collision insurance

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Q7 caused by collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage pays for things like driving through your garage door, colliding with another moving vehicle and scraping a guard rail. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are older. Another option is to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Better coverage you can count on

As you quote car insurance, you should never reduce coverage to reduce premium. There are many occasions where an insured cut full coverage to discover at claim time they didn’t have enough coverage. Your goal is to find the BEST coverage at the best price, but don’t skip important coverages to save money.

We’ve covered many ways to lower your 2013 Audi Q7 insurance prices. The key thing to remember is the more rate comparisons you have, the higher your chance of finding low cost car insurance. Consumers may even find the best prices are with a smaller regional carrier.
