2013 Audi S4 Insurance Quotes

Trying to find cheaper insurance coverage rates? Buyers have many options when searching for the best price on Audi S4 insurance. You can either waste hours calling around to get rate comparisons or utilize the internet to compare rates. There is a right way and a wrong way to compare insurance coverage rates so we’re going to tell you the proper way to quote coverages on a Audi and obtain the cheapest rates.

Lesser-known factors impacting Audi S4 insurance rates

Smart consumers have a good feel for the factors that go into determining your insurance rates. When you know what positively or negatively determines base rates helps enable you to make changes that can help you get lower insurance prices.

Listed below are some of the factors that factor into your rates.

  • Too many insurance claims drive up costs – If you tend to file frequent claims, you can definitely plan on either higher rates or even cancellation. Companies generally give discounts to policyholders who do not file claims often. Car insurance is meant to be used in the event of major claims that would cause financial hardship.
  • Marriage brings a discount – Being married can actually save you money on your insurance policy. Marriage translates into being more mature than a single person and it’s statistically proven that being married results in fewer claims.
  • Don’t get talked into coverage you don’t need – There are a lot of extra bells and whistles you can purchase when buying insurance. Coverages like personal injury protection, better glass coverage and term life insurance may be wasting your money. These may sound like a good investment initially, but if they’re wasting money get rid of them and save.
  • Do you know your deductibles? – Your deductibles define the amount you are required to spend before your insurance pays a claim. Physical damage coverage, otherwise known as comp (or other than collision) and collision, covers damage that occurs to your car. Some instances where coverage would apply could be running into the backend of another car, damage caused by hail, and burglary. The more money you are required to pay out-of-pocket, the less your insurance will be on S4 insurance.
  • Equipment add-ons that lower insurance rates – Purchasing a vehicle with an alarm system can get you a discount on your insurance. Theft prevention devices like GM’s OnStar, tamper alarm systems and vehicle immobilizers all aid in stopping your vehicle from being stolen.
  • Where you live – Living in a small town has it’s advantages when it comes to insurance. Fewer people means a lower chance of having an accident and also fewer theft and vandalism claims. Urban drivers have to deal with congested traffic and longer commutes to work. More time on the road translates into higher accident risk.

Get lower rates on Audi S4 insurance

Companies that sell car insurance don’t always advertise every available discount in an easy-to-find place, so we researched some of the best known and the harder-to-find savings tricks you should be using. If they aren’t giving you every credit available, you are paying more than you should be.

  • Drivers Education – Require your teen driver to successfully complete driver’s ed class in high school.
  • Safe Drivers – Insureds without accidents may receive a discount up to 45% less on S4 insurance than less cautious drivers.

Don’t be fooled by advertising claims

Consumers can’t ignore all the ads for cheaper car insurance from the likes of Progressive, Allstate and GEICO. All the ads say the same thing of big savings after switching your coverage to them.

How does each company make the same claim? This is how they do it.

Different companies are able to cherry pick for the type of customer that is profitable for them. An example of a profitable customer might be over the age of 50, has no tickets, and has a short commute. A customer that hits that “sweet spot” is entitled to the best price and therefore will save quite a bit of money when switching.

Potential customers who fall outside this ideal profile will be charged higher rates and this can result in business going elsewhere. The ads say “customers who switch” not “everyone that quotes” save that kind of money. This is how insurance companies can confidently state the savings. That is why it is so important to get a wide range of price quotes. It is impossible to predict the company that will have the lowest Audi S4 insurance rates.

Tailor your coverage to you

When buying coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is not a single plan that fits everyone. Every insured’s situation is different.

For example, these questions can help discover if your situation would benefit from professional advice.

  • Is upholstery damage covered by car insurance?
  • Can I still get insurance after a DUI?
  • Does my car insurance cover rental cars?
  • Should I sign the liability waiver when renting a car?
  • Can my teen driver be rated on a liability-only vehicle?
  • Do I need an umbrella policy?
  • Is a blown tire covered by insurance?
  • How much liability coverage do I need in my state?

If you’re not sure about those questions, you might consider talking to a licensed insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form. It only takes a few minutes and you can get the answers you need.

The coverage is in the details

Understanding the coverages of your policy aids in choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as fire damage, theft, vandalism, rock chips in glass and damage from flooding. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Auto collision coverage

This will pay to fix damage to your S4 resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage protects against things like damaging your car on a curb, crashing into a building, backing into a parked car and hitting a mailbox. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.

Insurance for medical payments

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for immediate expenses for pain medications, funeral costs, ambulance fees and prosthetic devices. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This gives you protection from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Audi S4.

Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

Liability insurance

Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to people or other property. It protects YOU from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for 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. Your policy might show policy limits of 25/50/25 that translate to a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability insurance covers things like repair bills for other people’s vehicles, loss of income, repair costs for stationary objects and legal defense fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but you should buy higher limits if possible.

One last thing

When buying insurance coverage, never reduce needed coverages to save money. There are too many instances where someone dropped physical damage coverage only to discover later that it was a big error on their part. Your focus should be to purchase plenty of coverage at a price you can afford while not skimping on critical coverages.

Drivers change insurance companies for a number of reasons such as policy cancellation, extreme rates for teen drivers, high rates after DUI convictions and even lack of trust in their agent. It doesn’t matter what your reason, switching companies is actually quite simple.
