It's safe to assume that insurance companies don't want you to look for a cheaper policy. People who perform rate comparisons will most likely buy a different policy because of the high probability of finding a lower-cost company. Surprisingly, a recent survey revealed that drivers who did price comparisons regularly saved on average $72 a month compared to people who never shopped around for better prices.

If finding budget-friendly auto insurance is your ultimate goal, then learning about how to quote prices and compare coverages can help simplify the task of finding more affordable coverage.

Discount Audi R8 insuranceThe most effective way to find lower priced car insurance rates is to regularly compare price quotes from insurers that sell auto insurance in Boston.

  1. Take a few minutes and learn about how companies set rates and the things you can control to keep rates down. Many factors that cause high rates such as traffic citations and bad credit can be improved by making minor driving habit or lifestyle changes. Read the full article for instructions to help prevent high rates and earn larger discounts.
  2. Compare rates from direct carriers, independent agents, and exclusive agents. Direct companies and exclusive agencies can provide rates from one company like GEICO and Allstate, while agents who are independent can quote prices for a wide range of companies.
  3. Compare the new rates to the premium of your current policy and determine if there is any savings. If you can save money and switch companies, make sure the effective date of the new policy is the same as the expiration date of the old one.
  4. Notify your current company of your intention to cancel your existing policy. Submit the signed application along with the required initial payment to your new carrier. Immediately upon receiving it, put the new certificate verifying coverage with the vehicle registration.

An important bit of advice to remember is to make sure you're comparing identical coverage information on each price quote and and to compare all possible companies. Doing this helps ensure an apples-to-apples comparison and a complete price analysis.

Affordable rates on Audi R8 insurance in Boston with these nine discounts

Companies that sell car insurance don't always advertise every discount available in a way that's easy to find, so the list below gives a summary of a few of the more well known as well as the least known discounts that you may qualify for.Insurance discounts

  • Paperwork-free - Some insurance companies give back up to $50 for buying your policy over the internet.
  • Good Student - This discount may save you up to 25%. This discount can apply up to age 25.
  • Payment Discounts - By making one initial payment as opposed to paying monthly you may have a lower total premium amount.
  • Driver's Education for Students - Reduce the cost of insurance for teen drivers by having them enroll in driver's education in high school.
  • Accident Waiver - This isn't a discount exactly, but companies like State Farm and GEICO permit an accident without getting socked with a rate hike if your claims history is clear for a certain period of time.
  • Telematics Data Discounts - People who choose to allow their company to analyze where and when they drive by using a telematic data system such as Progressive's Snapshot and State Farm's In-Drive may get a rate reduction as long as the data is positive.

Above prices assume married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Massachusetts minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-policy, multi-vehicle, claim-free, homeowner, and safe-driver. Price estimates do not factor in specific Boston garaging location which can modify coverage prices noticeably.

Based on the figures above, using a $250 deductible costs an average of $54 more each month or $648 a year than selecting the higher $1,000 deductible. Because you would pay $750 more out of your own pocket with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you go more than 14 months between claims, you would probably be better off if you decide on a higher deductible. The numbers below show a better example of how this calculation is made.

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $181
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $127
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $54
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 - $250): $750
Divide difference by monthly savings: $750 / $54
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 14 months

One important caveat is that a higher deductible means you will have to pay more of your own money when you have a comprehensive or collision claim. That will require enough disposable savings in the event you need to pay the deductible.

Drive safe and save

The chart below shows how speeding tickets and at-fault accidents can affect Audi R8 insurance premiums for different age categories. The rates are based on a single male driver, full physical damage coverage, $1,000 deductibles, and no discounts are applied.

Cost of full coverage in Boston

The example below shows the comparison of Audi R8 yearly insurance costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying liability only. The price estimates are based on no violations or accidents, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are factored in.

Should you buy full coverage or liability only?

There is no exact rule to delete comp and collision coverage, but there is a broad guideline. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is about 10% or more of the vehicle's replacement cost less your deductible, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.

For example, let's pretend your Audi R8 replacement cost is $8,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, you would only receive $7,000 after you pay the deductible. If it's costing you more than $700 a year for your policy with full coverage, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.

There are some situations where buying only liability insurance is not in your best interest. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you have to keep full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if your finances do not allow you to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should not opt for liability only.

Detailed coverages of your auto insurance policy

Having a good grasp of your auto insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Collision coverage - This coverage pays for damage to your R8 resulting from a collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision can pay for claims such as damaging your car on a curb, crashing into a ditch and driving through your garage door. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible on your R8 to save money on collision insurance.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage - Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection when the "other guys" either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle's occupants and also any damage incurred to your Audi R8.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law (which is 20/40/5), their limits can quickly be used up. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liability limits.

Medical payments coverage and PIP - Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for bills for things like hospital visits, funeral costs, chiropractic care, nursing services and doctor visits. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible

Comprehensive coverage - This coverage pays for 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 insurance covers things like vandalism, damage from flooding, damage from a tornado or hurricane, rock chips in glass and fire damage. The highest amount you'll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Liability - This coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on other's property or people. It protects YOU against other people's claims, and does not provide coverage for your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see limits of 20/40/5 that translate to $20,000 in coverage for each person's injuries, $40,000 for the entire accident, and $5,000 of coverage for damaged property. Alternatively, you may have one limit called combined single limit (CSL) that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.

Liability coverage pays for things such as court costs, attorney fees and funeral expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it's cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible. Massachusetts requires drivers to carry at least 20/40/5 but you should think about purchasing more liability than the minimum.

The next chart shows why low liability limits may not be enough coverage.

Shop smart and save

Budget-conscious Audi R8 insurance is attainable online and with local Boston insurance agents, and you need to price shop both in order to have the best chance of saving money. Some insurance companies may not offer online price quotes and these regional insurance providers provide coverage only through local independent agents.

Drivers change insurance companies for a number of reasons such as lack of trust in their agent, being labeled a high risk driver, delays in paying claims or even high rates after DUI convictions. Whatever your reason, switching insurance companies can be less work than you think.

As you restructure your insurance plan, make sure you don't reduce needed coverages to save money. There are many occasions where drivers have reduced uninsured motorist or liability limits and discovered at claim time that the small savings ended up costing them much more. The proper strategy is to get the best coverage possible for the lowest price.
