Continue reading for information to help keep prices low and find additional discounts you may qualify for.
  2. Request price quotes from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Direct and exclusive agents can provide rates from one company like GEICO and Allstate, while independent agencies can provide rate quotes from multiple sources.
  3. Compare the new rate quotes to the price on your current policy to see if you can save by switching companies. If you find better rates and change companies, make sure there is no coverage gap between policies.
  4. Provide adequate notice to your current company to cancel your existing policy. Submit any necessary down payment along with the completed application to your new insurance company. When you receive it, place your new certificate verifying proof of insurance with the vehicle registration.

One tip to remember is to use the same level of coverage on each quote request and and to get quotes from as many carriers as you can. Doing this ensures the most accurate price comparison and a thorough selection of prices.

Cost estimates assume married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Arizona minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-policy, claim-free, multi-vehicle, homeowner, and safe-driver. Price estimates do not factor in zip code location which can change prices substantially.

Based on these figures, using a $100 deductible will cost you roughly $32 more each month or $384 every year than opting for the higher $1,000 deductible. Because you would pay $900 more if you file a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you tend to go at a minimum 28 months between claim filings, you would save more money if you choose the higher deductible.

How to determine if higher deductibles are a good idea

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $96
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): – $64
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $32
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 – $100): $900
Divide difference by monthly savings: $900 / $32
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 28 months

One thing to be aware of is that raising deductibles to save money means you will have to cover more of the damage yourself when you have to file a claim. That will necessitate a higher level of savings in the event you have to pay more for the deductible.

Car insurance coverage information

Knowing the specifics of auto insurance helps when choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy. These are typical coverage types offered by auto insurance companies.

Collision coverage protection

This coverage covers damage to your Tiguan caused by collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage protects against things such as driving through your garage door, crashing into a ditch, damaging your car on a curb and hitting a parking meter. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. Another option is to bump up the deductible on your Tiguan to get cheaper collision coverage.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Volkswagen Tiguan.

Since many Arizona drivers have only the minimum liability required by law (which is 15/30/10), their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.

Medical payments coverage and PIP

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for bills such as prosthetic devices, X-ray expenses and doctor visits. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as 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

Auto liability insurance

Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to people or other property that is your fault. It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have policy limits of 15/30/10 that translate to $15,000 bodily injury coverage, $30,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $10,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability insurance covers things such as bail bonds, funeral expenses and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but buy as high a limit as you can afford. Arizona requires drivers to carry at least 15/30/10 but you should think about purchasing more liability than the minimum.

The chart below shows why buying the state minimum limits may not provide you with enough coverage.

Comprehensive coverage

This coverage covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as theft, damage from flooding, hail damage, fire damage and vandalism. The maximum amount a auto 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 removing comprehensive coverage.

More comparisons equals cheaper rates

When searching for cheaper Tucson auto insurance quotes, don’t be tempted to skimp on coverage in order to save money. In many cases, consumers will sacrifice collision coverage to discover at claim time that it was a big mistake. Your strategy should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at the best cost, but do not skimp to save money.
