Some insurers do not advertise every possible discount very clearly, so we break down some of the more common in addition to some of the lesser obvious discounts that may be available.
You can save money using discounts, but most discounts do not apply to the entire cost. Most only cut the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. So when it seems like all the discounts add up to a free policy, companies don’t profit that way.
A few of the larger companies and a summarized list of policyholder discounts are:
If you need cheap insurance coverage quotes, ask each insurance company to apply every possible discount. Some of the earlier mentioned discounts may not apply in your area.

Knowing the specifics of your car insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.
Coverage for liability
Liability coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability can pay for claims such as medical services, funeral expenses and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but buy as large an amount as possible.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like theft, falling objects and fire damage. The most your car insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
Collision insurance covers damage to your S3 resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against things like crashing into a ditch, hitting a parking meter, sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a building and driving through your garage door. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Audi S3.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Frequently these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
Medical expense insurance
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for immediate expenses like hospital visits, pain medications, nursing services and prosthetic devices. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
