Discount Audi S4 insuranceIt takes a few minutes, but the best way to find discount car insurance rates is to start comparing prices yearly from companies who provide car insurance in Detroit.

  • Step 1: Try to learn about how insurance works and the factors you can control to prevent rate increases. Many risk factors that drive up the price like traffic citations and your credit history can be controlled by making minor changes to your lifestyle.
  • Step 2: Request rate estimates from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Direct companies and exclusive agencies can only give rate quotes from one company like GEICO or Farmers Insurance, while independent agencies can provide rate quotes from multiple insurance companies. View prices
  • Step 3: Compare the quotes to your current policy premium to see if you can save by switching companies. If you find a lower rate and buy the policy, ensure there is no coverage lapse between policies.

The most important part of shopping around is to use the same level of coverage on each price quote and and to analyze as many companies as feasibly possible. This ensures a level playing field and the best price quote selection.

It's safe to conclude that car insurance companies want to keep you from comparing rates. Consumers who compare other rates are inclined to buy a different policy because they have a good chance of getting low-cost coverage. A recent survey discovered that people who regularly compared rates saved an average of $3,500 over four years compared to drivers who never compared rates.

If finding the lowest price on car insurance is why you're here, understanding how to get rate quotes and compare insurance rates can help make the process easier and more efficient.

Discounts applied include claim-free, safe-driver, homeowner, multi-policy, and multi-vehicle. Information does not factor in the specific area where the vehicle is garaged which can affect premium rates substantially.

Should you raise deductibles?

One of the more difficult decisions when buying auto insurance is where to set your physical damage deductibles. The premium rates below approximate the cost difference when you choose different comp and collision deductibles. The first table uses a $100 deductible for comp and collision and the second pricing table uses a $1,000 deductible.

Data based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Michigan minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-policy, claim-free, homeowner, multi-vehicle, and safe-driver. Price estimates do not factor in vehicle location which can influence insurance rates noticeably.

Based on the data above, we can derive that using a $100 deductible will cost in the ballpark of $96 more each month or $1152 every year averaged for all S4 models than quoting the higher $1,000 deductible. Since the policyholder would be required to pay $900 more to file a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you tend to have more than 9 months between claim filings, you would save more money if you decide on a higher deductible.

The illustration below demonstrates how choosing different deductibles and can increase or decrease Audi S4 annual premium costs for different ages of insureds. The data is based on a married female driver, comp and collision included, and no discounts are applied.

Driving violations and accidents

The example below demonstrates how traffic citations and at-fault fender-benders can influence Audi S4 insurance rates for different age groups. The rates are based on a married male driver, comp and collision included, $250 deductibles, and no discounts are applied.

Auto insurance cost for men versus women in Detroit

The diagram below visualizes the comparison of Audi S4 insurance costs for male and female drivers. The premium estimates are based on no accidents, no driving violations, comp and collision included, $500 deductibles, single marital status, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

Does full coverage make sense?

The information below shows the difference between Audi S4 insurance premiums with liability coverage only compared to full coverage. The price estimates are based on no driving violations, no at-fault accidents, $250 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no discounts are factored in.

Should you pay for full coverage or liability only?

There is no written rule to stop paying for comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a broad guideline. If the yearly cost of full coverage is more than around 10% of replacement cost minus your deductible, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.

For example, let's say your Audi S4 replacement cost is $7,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most you would receive is $6,000 after paying your policy deductible. If you are paying in excess of $600 a year for physical damage coverage, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.

There are some conditions where only buying liability is not a good plan. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you are required to maintain full coverage in order to satisfy the requirements of the loan. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should not eliminate full coverage.

Do you qualify for discounts on Audi S4 insurance in Detroit?

Insuring your fleet can be pricey, but you might already qualify for some discounts that can dramatically reduce your bill. Some discounts apply automatically when you quote, but some must be inquired about before you will receive the discount.Car insurance discounts

  • One Accident Forgiven - Not a discount per se, but certain companies will forgive one accident before your rates go up so long as you are claim-free for a particular time prior to the accident.
  • Low Mileage Discounts - Fewer annual miles on your Audi may enable drivers to earn better premium rates on cars that stay parked.
  • Military Discounts - Having a deployed family member could be rewarded with lower car insurance rates.
  • Student in College - Children who are enrolled in a college that is more than 100 miles from Detroit without a vehicle on campus may be insured at a cheaper rate.
  • Detroit Homeowners Discount - Just being a homeowner can get you a discount because maintaining a house is proof of financial responsibility.
  • Memberships - Being in a professional or civic organization can get you a small discount when getting a Detroit auto insurance quote.
  • Senior Citizens - Older drivers may be able to get lower premium rates.

One thing to note about discounts is that some credits don't apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only cut the cost of specific coverages such as physical damage coverage or medical payments. Even though it may seem like you could get a free car insurance policy, it doesn't quite work that way. But any discount will help reduce the amount you pay for coverage.

The information below illustrates the difference between Audi S4 yearly insurance costs with and without discounts applied to the rates. The data assumes a male driver, no claims or driving violations, Michigan state minimum liability limits, comprehensive and collision coverage, and $100 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with claim-free, homeowner, safe-driver, multi-policy, marriage, and multi-car discounts applied.

Types of car insurance agents

When researching a reliable insurance agent, you need to know there are two types of insurance agents and how they operate. Auto insurance agencies can be categorized as either independent or exclusive depending on the company they work for. Either can insure your vehicles properly, but it's worth learning the subtle differences because it can impact your selection of an agent.

Exclusive insurance agents are usually quite knowledgeable on their products and sales techniques which helps them compete with independent agents.

Auto insurance coverages explained

Having a good grasp of a auto insurance policy can help you determine the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Auto insurance terms can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are typical coverage types offered by auto insurance companies.

Comprehensive protection

Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims like a broken windshield, damage from getting keyed, damage from flooding, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible it's not worth carrying full coverage.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle's occupants when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle's damage.

Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (20/40/10 in Michigan), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

Collision insurance

Collision coverage pays for damage to your S4 resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers claims like hitting a mailbox, rolling your car, crashing into a ditch and crashing into a building. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to bump up the deductible on your S4 to get cheaper collision coverage.

Medical expense coverage

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for short-term medical expenses like X-ray expenses, funeral costs, pain medications, surgery and nursing services. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Liability

Liability insurance provides protection from damage that occurs to other people or property in an accident. Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 20/40/10 which means $20,000 in coverage for each person's injuries, a total of $40,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $10,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability coverage protects against claims like loss of income, attorney fees, emergency aid and medical services. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford. Michigan state law requires minimum liability limits of 20/40/10 but you should consider buying higher limits.

The illustration below demonstrates why low liability limits may not be high enough to cover claims.

You can find affordable coverage

We just presented quite a bit of information on how to lower your Audi S4 insurance prices in Detroit. The most important thing to understand is the more price quotes you have, the higher your chance of finding low cost Detroit auto insurance quotes. You may even be surprised to find that the most savings is with a small mutual company. Smaller companies can often insure niche markets at a lower cost than their larger competitors like State Farm, GEICO and Nationwide.

When searching for affordable Detroit auto insurance quotes, make sure you don't buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. There are too many instances where an accident victim reduced liability limits or collision coverage only to regret at claim time they didn't have enough coverage. The proper strategy is to buy a smart amount of coverage for the lowest cost, but do not sacrifice coverage to save money.
