Looking for the cheapest car insurance rates for your Audi Q7? Sick and tired of wondering where the money will come from to pay your car insurance bill each month? Your situation is no different than millions of other people. Online insurance companies like State Farm, Progressive and GEICO all promote huge savings with fancy advertisements and consumers find it hard to ignore the promise of big savings and do the work needed to find the best deal.

It’s a great practice to take a look at other company’s rates on a regular basis because prices are usually higher with each renewal. Even if you think you had the lowest price for Q7 coverage a couple years back there is a good chance you can find better rates now. Forget all the misinformation about car insurance because I’m going to let you in on the secrets to the things you must know in order to get good coverage at a lower rate.

How much is insurance?

There are multiple methods to compare insurance prices and some are less labor-intensive and much quicker. You can spend countless hours talking about coverages with local insurance agents in your area, or you could use the web to get pricing more quickly.

Most major companies are enrolled in a marketplace where prospective buyers only type in their quote data once, and every company then returns a price quote. This saves time by eliminating quote forms for each company.

To compare pricing click here (opens in new window).

The only drawback to using this type of system is you can’t choose which insurance companies to get quotes from. If you wish to select specific insurance companies to request quotes from, we have a listing of insurance companies in your area. Click here to view list.

However you get your quotes, do your best to enter the same coverages and limits for each price quote. If you are comparing unequal deductibles or liability limits you will not be able to determine which rate is truly the best.

Discounts can really help to save

Companies that sell car insurance don’t always publicize the entire discount list very well, so we researched a few of the more common and the harder-to-find insurance savings. If you’re not getting every credit you deserve, you’re paying more than you need to.

  • Resident Student – Kids who are enrolled in higher education away from home without a vehicle on campus can receive lower rates.
  • Driver Education Discount – Teen drivers should complete a driver education course as it will make them better drivers and lower rates.
  • Smart Student Discounts – This discount may save you up to 25%. The discount lasts well after school through age 25.
  • Pay Early and Save – By making one initial payment rather than paying in monthly installments you could save up to 5%.
  • Multi-car Discount – Buying coverage for more than one vehicle with the same company can reduce the rates for all insured vehicles.
  • Air Bags and Passive Restraints – Cars that have air bags or motorized seat belts can get savings of 20 to 30 percent.
  • Safety Course Discount – Taking time to complete a driver safety course can save you 5% or more and make you a better driver.

Consumers should know that most discounts do not apply to the entire policy premium. Most cut the price of certain insurance coverages like comprehensive or collision. So when the math indicates adding up those discounts means a free policy, it doesn’t quite work that way.

Coverages available on your policy

Learning about specific coverages of car insurance aids in choosing the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Car insurance terms can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are typical coverages found on the average car insurance policy.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage – This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Frequently these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

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

Collision insurance covers things like rolling your car, damaging your car on a curb, scraping a guard rail, sustaining damage from a pot hole and crashing into a building. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Liability insurance – Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to other’s property or people. It protects YOU against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see values of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 bodily injury coverage, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use a combined single limit or CSL which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage protects against things such as pain and suffering, legal defense fees, repair costs for stationary objects, attorney fees and structural damage. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Medical payments coverage and PIP – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for immediate expenses such as X-ray expenses, nursing services, rehabilitation expenses, hospital visits and chiropractic care. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible

Comprehensive coverage – This coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, falling objects, hitting a deer, damage from flooding and rock chips in glass. The highest amount your car insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
