Compare insurance price quotes

Comparing insurance rates can be challenging if you aren’t aware of the fastest way to get free quotes. You could spend your day talking to local insurance agents in your area, or you can utilize online quoting to get the quickest rates.

Most of the best insurance companies participate in a marketplace where prospective buyers enter their coverage request one time, and at least one company returns a competitive quote determined by their information. This eliminates the need for repetitive form submissions for each company you want a rate for.

One minor caviat to doing it this way is buyers cannot specifically choose which providers to get quotes from. If you prefer to choose individual companies to compare prices, we have assembled a list of low cost insurance companies in your area. Click to view list.

Whichever way you choose to compare rates, do your best to use the exact same coverage data for each price quote. If you have different data it’s not possible to determine the lowest rate for your Audi A6.

Cheaper insurance rates with discounts

Not too many consumers would say insurance is affordable, but companies offer discounts that you may not know about. Most are applied at the time of purchase, but some must be specifically requested before you will receive the discount.

  • Discount for Life Insurance – Not all insurance companies offer life insurance, but some may give you a small discount if you purchase some life insurance too.
  • Telematics Discount – Insureds that choose to allow their insurance company to track driving habits through the use of a telematics system such as State Farm’s In-Drive might see lower rates if they exhibit good driving behavior.
  • Braking Control Discount – Cars and trucks that have steering control and anti-lock brakes can avoid accidents so you can save 10 percent or more.
  • Multi-car Discount – Buying a policy with several vehicles on one policy can get a discount for every vehicle.
  • Discounts for New Vehicles – Buying a new car instead of a used car is cheaper since newer vehicles have better safety ratings.
  • Waiver for an Accident – This one isn’t a discount, but a few companies such as Progressive, Allstate, and GEICO will turn a blind eye to one accident without getting socked with a rate hike if you have no claims for a set time period.
  • Homeowners Savings – Being a homeowner can earn you a little savings because owning a home requires a higher level of personal finance.
  • Save over 55 – Mature drivers can possibly qualify for a small discount on rates for A6 insurance.
  • Payment Discounts – If you pay your entire premium ahead of time rather than paying in monthly installments you may reduce your total bill.

We need to note that some of the credits will not apply to the entire policy premium. Most only reduce specific coverage prices like physical damage coverage or medical payments. So despite the fact that it appears it’s possible to get free car insurance, companies wouldn’t make money that way. Any qualifying discounts will definitely reduce your overall bill.

Tailor your insurance coverage coverage to you

When it comes to buying adequate coverage, there is no single plan that fits everyone. Coverage needs to be tailored to your specific needs.

Here are some questions about coverages that may help highlight if your insurance needs may require specific advice.

  • Should I bundle my homeowners policy with my auto?
  • Do I have coverage if my license is suspended?
  • Should I put collision coverage on all my vehicles?
  • What happens if I owe more than my 2015 Audi A6 is worth?
  • Do I need rental car coverage?
  • How high should my medical payments coverage be?

If you can’t answer these questions but a few of them apply then you might want to talk to an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, fill out this quick form. It’s fast, doesn’t cost anything and can help protect your family.

Four factors that affect insurance costs

Part of the car insurance buying process is learning a few of the rating criteria that come into play when calculating the rates you pay for car insurance. If you have some idea of what impacts premium levels, this allows you to make educated decisions that can earn you cheaper rates.

  • Single vs. married – Walking down the aisle actually saves money compared to being single. Marriage demonstrates that you tend to be more mature and it’s statistically proven that married drivers get in fewer accidents.
  • If you don’t need it don’t buy it – There are a ton of add-on coverages that sound like a good idea at the time if you aren’t careful. Insurance for things like replacement cost coverage, better glass coverage, and Farm Bureau memberships may be wasting your money. They may sound like good ideas when buying your policy, but your needs may have changed so eliminate the coverages to reduce your premium.
  • Males tend to take more risk – Over the last 30 years, statistics show women are more cautious behind the wheel. However, don’t assume that men are WORSE drivers than women. Females and males are in fender benders at about the same rate, but the males cause more damage and cost insurance companies more money. In addition to higher claims, males also get higher numbers of serious violations like DWI (DUI) or reckless driving. Young men ages 16 to 20 generally have the highest accident percentage so it costs more to insure them.
  • Liability risk factors in – Liability coverage is the protection in the event that you are found to be at fault for personal injury or accident damage. This coverage provides legal defense coverage to attempt to prove you were not liable. This coverage is relatively inexpensive when compared to the cost of physical damage coverage, so do not cut corners here.

Insurance coverage basics

Having a good grasp of a insurance policy can be of help when determining the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement.

Collision coverage

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision insurance covers things like crashing into a building, hitting a parking meter, sideswiping another vehicle and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Liability car insurance

Liability coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.

Liability coverage pays for things like medical expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, medical services and bail bonds. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism, damage from flooding and hitting a bird. The highest amount your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This coverage provides protection from other motorists 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 A6.

Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.

Insurance for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses for things like ambulance fees, prosthetic devices, surgery, chiropractic care and X-ray expenses. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. It covers you and your occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Quote more. Save more.

Affordable 2015 Audi A6 insurance is attainable from both online companies as well as from independent agents, and you should be comparing both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. There are still a few companies who don’t offer rate quotes online and many times these regional carriers only sell coverage through independent agents.

Throughout this article, we presented many ideas to compare 2015 Audi A6 insurance premium rates online. It’s most important to understand that the more times you quote, the better likelihood of getting low cost car insurance. You may even find the lowest premium rates come from a small local company.

While you’re price shopping online, you should never buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. There are too many instances where an accident victim reduced liability limits or collision coverage and discovered at claim time that the small savings ended up costing them much more. Your strategy should be to buy the best coverage you can find at the best possible price, but don’t skip important coverages to save money.
