We don't have to tell you that auto insurance companies want to keep your business as long as possible. Insureds who perform rate comparisons are highly likely to switch companies because they stand a good chance of finding lower rate quotes. A recent survey discovered that drivers who made a habit of comparing rates saved as much as $865 annually compared to drivers who don't make a habit of comparing rates.

If finding budget-friendly Audi S4 insurance is the reason you're reading this, then having an understanding of how to compare coverages can make shopping around easier.

Insurance quote for Audi S4 in Chula VistaIf you want to find the absolute lowest rates, then the best way to get more affordable Audi S4 insurance is to do a yearly price comparison from insurers in Chula Vista. Drivers can shop around by following these steps.

  • Step 1: Get an understanding of how your policy works and the measures you can take to keep rates low. Many rating factors that are responsible for high rates such as traffic tickets, fender benders, and a negative credit score can be remedied by making minor changes to your lifestyle.
  • Step 2: Get rate quotes from direct carriers, independent agents, and exclusive agents. Direct and exclusive agents can only give rate quotes from a single company like GEICO or Allstate, while independent agents can quote rates for a wide range of companies.
  • Step 3: Compare the price quotes to the premium of your current policy and determine if there is any savings. If you find a better price and make a switch, make sure coverage is continuous and does not lapse.
  • Step 4: Provide notification to your current company to cancel your current car insurance policy. Submit a down payment along with a completed application to the new company. When you receive it, put the new proof of insurance paperwork in your glove compartment.

The most important part of shopping around is to try to compare the same deductibles and limits on every price quote and to quote with as many car insurance companies as possible. This provides an accurate price comparison and a better comparison of the market.

If you have insurance now or are looking for a new policy, use these tips to reduce the price you pay and still get good coverage. Quoting and comparing the best coverage in Chula Vista is easy if you know what you're doing. Smart shoppers only need to know the proper way to quote multiple rates from many different companies.

Data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and California minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, safe-driver, and homeowner. Estimates do not factor in specific Chula Vista garaging location which can lower or raise price quotes substantially.

Based on this data, we can arrive at the conclusion that using a $250 deductible could cost the average driver approximately $23 more each month or $276 each year averaged for all S4 models than selecting the higher $500 deductible. Since you would pay $250 more out of your own pocket with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you have at least 11 months between claim filings, you would save money if you elect the higher deductible. Here is an example of how you can do this calculation yourself.

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $156
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $133
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $23
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $250): $250
Divide difference by monthly savings: $250 / $23
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 11 months

One important issue to know is that raising deductibles to get cheaper rates means you will have to pay more out-of-pocket if you have a claim. You need enough extra money in the event you have to pay the higher deductible in order to repair your vehicle.

Auto insurance protects more than just your car

Even though it's not necessarily cheap to insure an Audi in Chula Vista, buying auto insurance is required for several reasons.

  • The majority of states have minimum liability requirements which means you are required to carry specific minimum amounts of liability in order to be legal. In California these limits are 15/30/5 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If you bought your vehicle with a loan, almost all lenders will force you to have full coverage to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the bank may insure your Audi at an extremely high rate and require you to reimburse them a much higher amount than you were paying before.
  • Auto insurance protects not only your car but also your financial assets. It will also provide coverage for medical bills for you, any passengers, and anyone injured in an accident. One policy coverage, liability insurance, will also pay to defend you if anyone sues you for causing an accident. If damage is caused by hail or an accident, your auto insurance policy will pay all costs to repair after the deductible has been paid.

The benefits of buying auto insurance more than cancel out the cost, particularly for liability claims. But the average driver in California is overpaying over $865 each year so you should quote and compare rates at every policy renewal to ensure rates are competitive.

Specific coverages for an Audi S4

Knowing the specifics of your policy can be of help when determining the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Below you'll find the usual coverages found on the average auto insurance policy.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle's occupants and damage to your Audi S4.

Since many California drivers have only the minimum liability required by law (15/30/5), it doesn't take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Auto collision coverage

Collision coverage covers damage to your S4 resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage protects against claims such as crashing into a building, backing into a parked car and colliding with a tree. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. It's also possible to bump up the deductible on your S4 to save money on collision insurance.

Auto liability

This can cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property in an accident. It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 15/30/5 which stand for $15,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $30,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $5,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Some companies may use a combined limit which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage protects against things like repair costs for stationary objects, medical expenses, pain and suffering, emergency aid and loss of income. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but you should buy as large an amount as possible. California state law requires minimum liability limits of 15/30/5 but you should consider buying better liability coverage.

The next chart demonstrates why buying the state minimum limits may not be enough coverage.

Comprehensive auto coverage

Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like vandalism, damage from flooding, rock chips in glass, hitting a deer and theft. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle's value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for short-term medical expenses like X-ray expenses, funeral costs, nursing services and doctor visits. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
