It doesn’t matter which method you choose, just make sure you use exactly the same coverage information on every quote you get. If each company quotes different limits and deductibles on each one you will not be able to make a fair comparison for your Audi Cabriolet. Just a small difference in insurance coverages can make a big difference in price. And when comparison shopping, quoting more provides better odds of finding a lower rate.
Companies like Allstate, GEICO and Progressive consistently run television and radio advertisements. All the ads make the same claim about savings if you change your coverage to them. But how can every company claim to save you money? It’s all in the numbers.
Different companies have a preferred profile for the type of driver that makes them money. For instance, a preferred risk might be between the ages of 40 and 55, a clean driving record, and has a short commute. Any driver who meets those qualifications is entitled to the best price and therefore will save a lot of money.
Potential insureds who don’t meet the “perfect” profile will be charged a more expensive rate and ends up with business not being written. The ads state “customers that switch” not “everybody who quotes” save money. That’s why insurance companies can claim big savings. That is why you should compare many company’s rates. Because you never know which company will give you the biggest savings on Audi Cabriolet insurance.
Auto insurance companies don’t list every available discount very well, so we break down some of the best known and also the lesser-known discounts you could be receiving.
It’s important to note that some credits don’t apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only cut specific coverage prices like liability, collision or medical payments. Just because you may think having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, it just doesn’t work that way.
Insurance companies that may have these money-saving discounts are:
It’s a good idea to ask every prospective company which discounts they offer. All car insurance discounts may not apply in your state.

Knowing the specifics of insurance helps when choosing appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. Insurance terms can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are typical coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Comprehensive auto coverage
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as rock chips in glass, hail damage, falling objects, damage from getting keyed and a broken windshield. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Medical payments and PIP coverage
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for expenses like nursing services, X-ray expenses, rehabilitation expenses, prosthetic devices and ambulance fees. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. They cover you and your 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 (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Audi Cabriolet.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.
Collision insurance covers damage to your Cabriolet from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for claims like sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a building and scraping a guard rail. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
This coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other people or property that is your fault. It protects YOU from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see values of 100/300/100 that translate to a limit of $100,000 per injured person, $300,000 for the entire accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability coverage pays for things like legal defense fees, court costs, structural damage, loss of income and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
In this article, we covered some good ideas how to shop for 1996 Audi Cabriolet insurance online. The most important thing to understand is the more rate quotes you have, the better chance you’ll have of finding lower rates. You may even discover the lowest premiums are with a small local company. Regional companies may often insure only within specific states and give getter rates than their larger competitors like Allstate and Progressive.
As you restructure your insurance plan, make sure you don’t sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There have been many cases where consumers will sacrifice physical damage coverage and discovered at claim time that the savings was not a smart move. Your strategy should be to buy the best coverage you can find at an affordable rate while not skimping on critical coverages.
