Discount Audi A8 insuranceThe easiest way to get cheaper Audi A8 insurance in Tucson is to annually compare prices from companies that sell auto insurance in Arizona.

  1. Spend a few minutes and learn about individual coverages and the steps you can take to keep rates down.

Read the full article for ideas to help prevent high rates and get additional discounts.
  2. Compare rates from independent agents, exclusive agents, and direct companies. Direct and exclusive agents can only provide price estimates from a single company like GEICO or Farmers Insurance, while independent agents can provide prices from many different companies.
  3. Compare the price quotes to the premium of your current policy to see if you can save by switching companies. If you find better rates and decide to switch, verify that coverage does not lapse between policies.

One important bit of advice is to use the same deductibles and limits on each quote and and to get rate quotes from every company you can. Doing this ensures a fair rate comparison and the best rate selection.

It's an obvious assumption that insurance companies don't want their customers to go rate shopping. People who compare other prices are very likely to buy a new policy because the odds are good of finding better rates. A survey found that drivers who shopped around saved about $860 a year as compared to drivers who never shopped around for lower prices.

Discounts applied include multi-policy, safe-driver, multi-vehicle, homeowner, and claim-free. Table data does not factor in specific location which can increase or decrease rates substantially.

Based on the figures above, using a $250 deductible costs about $18 more each month or $216 annually across all Audi A8 models than buying the higher $500 deductible. Because you would pay $250 more out of your own pocket with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you average more than 14 months between claim filings, you would save money if you choose a higher deductible.

The diagram below demonstrates how deductible levels and can impact Audi A8 premium costs for different age groups. The prices are based on a single female driver, full physical damage coverage, and no policy discounts are applied.

Why do I need car insurance?

Even though it's not necessarily cheap to insure an Audi in Tucson, insurance may not be optional for several reasons.

First, almost all states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means it is punishable by state law to not carry specific minimum amounts of liability insurance coverage if you drive a vehicle. In Arizona these limits are 15/30/10 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if you have a lien on your Audi A8, most lenders will force you to have comprehensive coverage to ensure loan repayment if the vehicle is totaled. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the bank will be required to insure your Audi at a significantly higher premium and force you to pay for the expensive policy.

Third, insurance protects not only your Audi but also your financial assets. Insurance will also pay for medical transport and hospital expenses incurred in an accident. Liability insurance also pays for attorney fees and expenses if you cause an accident and are sued. If your vehicle suffers damage from an accident or hail, your auto insurance policy will pay to restore your vehicle to like-new condition.

The benefits of carrying enough insurance definitely exceed the price paid, specifically if you ever have a liability claim. The average driver in Arizona is overpaying more than $820 a year so compare rates each time the policy renews to save money.

Earn discounts to get lower-cost Tucson auto insurance rates

Some providers don't always list all possible discounts in a way that's easy to find, so the list below contains some of the best known as well as some of the hidden credits available to you.Cheaper auto insurance with discounts

  • Passive Restraints and Air Bags - Vehicles with factory air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems can qualify for discounts up to 30%.
  • Drive Less and Save - Low annual miles can earn lower rates on the low mileage vehicles.
  • Driver Education Discount - Require your teen driver to take driver's ed class as it will make them better drivers and lower rates.
  • Seat Belts Save more than Lives - Buckling up and requiring all passengers to use their safety belts can save up to 10 percent (depending on the company) off PIP or medical payments premium.
  • Defensive Driver Discount - Passing a class that teaches defensive driving techniques could cut 5% off your bill and make you a better driver.

Don't be shocked that most credits do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only cut individual premiums such as physical damage coverage or medical payments. So when it seems like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, it just doesn't work that way.

The example below illustrates the comparison of Audi A8 annual premium costs with and without some available policy discounts. The premium estimates are based on a male driver, no violations or accidents, Arizona state minimum liability limits, full coverage, and $500 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with homeowner, marriage, claim-free, safe-driver, multi-car, and multi-policy discounts applied.

A list of companies and their possible discounts include:

  • American Family includes discounts for TimeAway discount, Steer into Savings, good student, bundled insurance, defensive driver, and mySafetyValet.
  • Nationwide may have discounts that include easy pay, accident-free, business or organization, good student, and anti-theft.
  • MetLife may include discounts for claim-free, defensive driver, accident-free, multi-policy, good driver, and good student.
  • 21st Century may offer discounts for driver training, 55 and older, theft prevention, automatic seat belts, and good student.
  • Farmers Insurance policyholders can earn discounts including business and professional, pay in full, multi-car, distant student, and alternative fuel.
  • Allstate offers discounts including utility vehicle, good payer, defensive driver, FullPay discount, economy car, and early signing.

Specifics of your insurance policy

Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy aids in choosing which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for expenses like ambulance fees, pain medications, chiropractic care, surgery and EMT expenses. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Comprehensive auto coverage

This covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from a tornado or hurricane, rock chips in glass, damage from flooding and hail damage. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value consider dropping full coverage.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle's occupants when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Audi A8.

Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law (Arizona limits are 15/30/10), their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.

Liability auto insurance

This can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other's property or people. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn't cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You might see liability limits of 15/30/10 that translate to $15,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $30,000 in injury protection per accident, and $10,000 of coverage for damaged property.

Liability coverage pays for claims like medical expenses, loss of income and structural damage. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as much as you can afford. Arizona requires minimum liability limits of 15/30/10 but you should think about purchasing better liability coverage.

The illustration below shows why low liability limits may not provide adequate coverage.

Auto collision coverage

Collision coverage covers damage to your A8 resulting from colliding with an object or car. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers claims such as scraping a guard rail, driving through your garage door, rolling your car and colliding with a tree. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. It's also possible to increase the deductible on your A8 to bring the cost down.

Keep this in mind when shopping around

While you're price shopping online, never reduce coverage to reduce premium. There are too many instances where an insured cut collision coverage and learned later that the small savings ended up costing them much more. Your strategy should be to buy enough coverage for the lowest cost while still protecting your assets.
