Lower Your 2016 Audi R8 Insurance Quotes

Trying to find cheaper auto insurance rates for your Audi R8? Shopping online for auto insurance might seem complicated at first if you have never used quoting online. But don’t let that discourage you because there is an easy way to compare rates.

Consumers need to compare rates yearly because rates are variable and change quite frequently. If you had the lowest rates on R8 coverage six months ago there may be better deals available now. You can find a lot of misleading information regarding auto insurance online but I’m going to show you the easiest ways to put money back in your pocket.

How to Compare Insurance Coverage Costs

There are multiple methods to shop for 2016 Audi R8 insurance coverage, but some are less labor-intensive and much quicker. You can waste a few hours (or days) driving to agents in your area, or you can stay home and use the internet to get pricing more quickly.

Many of the larger companies are enrolled in a marketplace where insurance shoppers only type in their quote data once, and at least one company then gives them pricing based on that data. This saves time by eliminating repetitive form submissions for each company you want a rate for.

The only downside to getting quotes like this is you can’t choose the insurers to receive prices from. So if you prefer to choose from a list of companies to receive pricing from, we have a page of low cost insurance coverage companies in your area. View list of insurance companies.

It’s up to you which method you use, but ensure you’re using apples-to-apples coverage information on every quote. If you compare different liability limits you can’t possibly decipher which rate is best. Just a small difference in limits may cause a big price difference. Just keep in mind that comparing more company’s prices will enable you to find the best price.

Are auto insurance companies telling the truth?

Companies like Allstate, GEICO and Progressive continually stream ads on television and other media. All the ads have a common claim that you’ll save big after switching to their company. How do they all make almost identical claims?

Different companies have a certain “appetite” for the driver that is profitable for them. For instance, a desirable insured could possibly be between 25 and 40, insures multiple vehicles, and has a high credit rating. Any driver who meets those qualifications will get very good rates and is almost guaranteed to cut their rates substantially.

Potential insureds who are not a match for the “perfect” profile will be charged higher prices which leads to the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The ads state “drivers who switch” but not “drivers who get quotes” save that kind of money. That’s why companies can truthfully advertise the savings. That is why drivers must quote coverage with many companies. It is impossible to predict the company that will provide you with the cheapest Audi R8 insurance rates.

Discounts are great for lower rates

Auto insurance companies don’t list all available discounts in a way that’s easy to find, so the following is a list of both well-publicized and also the lesser-known savings tricks you should be using.

  • Passive Restraints and Air Bags – Cars that have air bags or automatic seat belts can qualify for discounts up to 30%.
  • Auto/Home Discount – When you have multiple policies with the same insurance company you could get a discount of 10% to 20% off each policy.
  • Fewer Miles Equal More Savings – Low mileage vehicles can qualify you for discounted rates on garaged vehicles.
  • Federal Government Employee – Being employed by or retired from a federal job can earn a discount up to 10% on R8 coverage with a few auto insurance companies.
  • Early Signing – Some insurance companies reward drivers for signing up before your current policy expires. This can save 10% or more.
  • Student in College – Youth drivers who are attending college and do not have access to a covered vehicle may be able to be covered for less.

A little note about advertised discounts, some of the credits will not apply to the entire cost. Most only cut individual premiums such as comprehensive or collision. So even though it sounds like you can get free auto insurance, it doesn’t quite work that way.

You may need specialized coverage

When buying the right insurance coverage, there really is not a “perfect” insurance plan. Everyone’s situation is a little different.

For instance, these questions could help you determine if your insurance needs would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Is my dog or cat covered if injured in an accident?
  • Where can I get insurance after a DUI in my state?
  • Is borrowed equipment or tools covered if stolen or damaged?
  • Am I covered if I break a side mirror?
  • Should I have a commercial auto policy?
  • When should I drop full coverage on my 2016 Audi R8?
  • Should I buy additional glass protection?
  • Is my custom paint covered by insurance?
  • Is my teenager covered with friends in the car?

If you’re not sure about those questions but you know they apply to you then you might want to talk to a licensed insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, fill out this quick form.

Coverage specifics

Having a good grasp of your car insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for immediate expenses such as ambulance fees, doctor visits, hospital visits, EMT expenses and nursing services. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers both the driver and occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

This coverage gives you protection when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family and damage to your 2016 Audi R8.

Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea.

Comprehensive auto coverage

Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive can pay for things such as vandalism, damage from getting keyed, falling objects and hitting a bird. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Auto collision coverage

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision can pay for things such as rolling your car, damaging your car on a curb, sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a parking meter and hitting a mailbox. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Liability auto insurance

Liability insurance can cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and property damage coverage for $100,000.

Liability insurance covers things such as medical expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, loss of income, court costs and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.

Be a penny pincher

When buying insurance coverage, you should never buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. In many cases, drivers have reduced liability coverage limits only to find out that the few dollars in savings costed them thousands. Your aim should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at an affordable rate.

People leave their current company for many reasons like extreme rates for teen drivers, policy cancellation, poor customer service or questionable increases in premium. Regardless of your reason for switching companies, switching companies is not as difficult as it may seem.

Low-cost 2016 Audi R8 insurance is available both online and also from your neighborhood agents, so you should compare both in order to have the best chance of saving money. Some insurance providers may not provide online price quotes and these smaller companies work with independent agents.
