Feel like you’re a prisoner to an overpriced insurance policy? Trust us when we tell you you are not the only one feeling buyer’s remorse.
Companies like State Farm, Progressive and GEICO promote their brand names with ads and it can be hard to separate fact from fiction and find the best price available.
You need to check insurance prices at least once a year because rates go up and down regularly. Despite the fact that you may have had the best rates for Phaeton coverage two years ago you can probably find a lower rate today.

Shopping for lower insurance rates is a ton of work if you don’t know the easiest way. You can spend your afternoon discussing policy coverages with agents in your area, or you could use the internet to maximize your effort.
Many companies take part in a program where prospective buyers enter their policy data once, and each company then gives them pricing determined by their information. This system prevents you from having to do quote forms for each company.

The single downside to doing it this way is that you can’t choose which providers to get pricing from. If you prefer to choose specific insurance companies to compare prices, we have a page of the cheapest insurance companies in your area. Click here for list of insurance companies.
Whichever method you choose, make absolute certain that you use apples-to-apples coverage limits with every price quote. If your comparisons have different deductibles it will be next to impossible to decipher which rate is best. Slightly different limits can make a big difference in price. Just keep in mind that more quotes helps you find the best price.
When it comes to buying proper insurance coverage, there really is no “best” method to buy coverage. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. Here are some questions about coverages that can aid in determining if your situation might need an agent’s assistance.
If you can’t answer these questions but one or more may apply to you then you might want to talk to an agent. To find an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form or click here for a list of car insurance companies in your area.
Understanding the coverages of your policy can help you determine the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find the normal coverages offered by insurance companies.
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like dental work, rehabilitation expenses, chiropractic care, hospital visits and nursing services. They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision insurance covers damage to your Phaeton from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, hitting a mailbox and damaging your car on a curb. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your 2006 Volkswagen Phaeton.
Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.
This will pay to fix 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 such as damage from flooding, rock chips in glass, hail damage, a broken windshield and hitting a bird. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
This will cover damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people by causing an accident. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have liability limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Occasionally you may see one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability can pay for things such as structural damage, medical services and attorney fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
