Criteria which help determine Volkswagen insurance rates

Car insurance premiums on a Volkswagen Golf can be significantly different and are calculated by many factors. A few of these criteria are:

  • Tickets increase premiums
  • Better credit means lower rates
  • Your gender can raise or lower rates
  • Low deductibles cost more
  • NTSB crash rating for your vehicle
  • Your claim history
  • Maintaining coverage lowers rates
  • Owning a home can lower rates

An additional factor that helps determine Golf insurance rates is the year of the vehicle. New vehicles cost more than older models so the costs to repair may end up costing you more. But newer models may have safety features including adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning system that may help give discounted rates.

To get more specific information about how rates are influenced for your specific model year, select the year of your vehicle from the following list.

Coverage for liability - This protects you from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property in an accident. Liability coverage protects against claims such as funeral expenses, loss of income, and emergency aid. It is cheap coverage so you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Collision coverage - Collision insurance pays for damage to your Volkswagen resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company. Collision coverage for your Golf can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It's also possible to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) - This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage. The highest amount a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle's value is low consider dropping full coverage.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage - This coverage protects you and your vehicle when the "other guys" do not carry enough liability coverage. Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.

Insurance for medical payments - Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for bills such as ambulance fees, surgery, and doctor visits. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. PIP coverage is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage.
