If you want to save money, the best way to find more affordable auto insurance rates is to annually compare prices from providers in San Jose. Rate comparisons can be done by following these guidelines.

  • Step 1: Gain an understanding of car insurance and the modifications you can make to prevent high rates. Many rating factors that result in higher prices such as at-fault accidents and a bad credit rating can be rectified by making minor changes in your lifestyle.
  • Step 2: Request rate estimates from direct carriers, independent agents, and exclusive agents. Exclusive agents and direct companies can provide rates from one company like GEICO or Allstate, while independent agents can provide price quotes from multiple companies.
  • Step 3: Compare the new quotes to your existing rates to see if a cheaper rate is available in San Jose. If you find a lower rate quote and buy the policy, make sure there is no lapse in coverage.
  • Step 4: Provide proper notification to your current company to cancel your current car insurance policy. Submit the application along with any required down payment to the new insurer. Immediately upon receiving it, place the new certificate of insurance in a readily accessible location in your vehicle.

One key aspect when comparing rates is to make sure you're comparing identical coverages on every quote request and and to get quotes from as many auto insurance providers as possible. Doing this provides a fair price comparison and a complete price analysis.

  • Discounts for Good Drivers - Insureds who avoid accidents may save up to 50% more as compared to drivers with claims.
  • Drivers Education - Have your child participate in a local driver's education class in school or through a local driver safety program.
  • Distant College Student Discount - College-age children who are attending college and don't have a car may qualify for this discount.
  • Good Grades Discount - Getting good grades can be rewarded with saving of up to 25%. This discount can apply up to age 25.
  • Early Switch Discount - Some larger companies reward drivers for switching to them prior to the expiration date on your current A6 insurance policy. The savings is around 10%.
  • Multiple Policy Discount - If you have multiple policies with the same company you could save 10% to 20% off each policy.
  • Full Payment Discount - By paying your policy upfront rather than paying monthly you could save up to 5%.
  • Use Seat Belts - Drivers who always wear seat belts and also require passengers to fasten their seat belts can save up to 10 percent (depending on the company) on medical payment and PIP coverage.
  • More Vehicles More Savings - Buying coverage for several vehicles on one policy can reduce rates for all insured vehicles.
  • Discount for Low Mileage - Maintaining low annual mileage may allow you to get slightly better premium rates than normal.

As a footnote on discounts, most credits do not apply to the entire policy premium. The majority will only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like comprehensive or collision. So even though they make it sound like all the discounts add up to a free policy, auto insurance companies aren't that generous.

The rate quotes are based on a female driver, a clean driving record, no at-fault accidents, California state minimum liability limits, comprehensive and collision coverage, and $1,000 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with marriage, homeowner, multi-car, multi-policy, safe-driver, and claim-free discounts applied.

Data variables include married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and California minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, multi-policy, safe-driver, claim-free, and multi-vehicle. Estimates do not factor in specific zip code location which can impact auto insurance rates significantly.

Using the premium rates above, we can conclude that using a $250 deductible costs roughly $45 more each month or $540 for a full year averaged for all A6 models than opting for the higher $1,000 deductible. Due to the fact that you would have to pay $750 more if you file a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you go at least 17 months between claims, you would more than likely save some money if you elect the higher deductible.

Cost comparison with and without full coverage

The example below shows the difference between Audi A6 premium costs with full coverage compared to only the California minimum liability coverage. The rates are based on no claims, a clean driving record, $500 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no other discounts are factored in.

Should you buy full coverage or liability only?

There is no clear-cut formula to drop physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline. If the yearly cost of full coverage is more than 10% of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

For example, let's assume your Audi A6 claim settlement value is $8,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, the most your company would pay you is $7,000 after the deductible is paid. If you are paying over $700 annually for physical damage coverage, then you might consider buying liability only.

There are some situations where eliminating full coverage is not financially feasible. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage in order to satisfy the requirements of the loan. Also, if you can't afford to buy a different vehicle in the even your car is totaled, you should maintain full coverage.

How do I know if I need professional advice?

When quoting and choosing adequate coverage for your vehicles, there is no cookie cutter policy. Your financial needs are unique.Higher deductibles save money

For example, these questions may help you determine if your situation will benefit from professional help.

  • Are my friends covered when driving my car?
  • Does my policy cover me if I wreck while driving under the influence?
  • Do I have ACV or replacement cost coverage?
  • Is a new car covered when I drive it off the dealer lot?
  • Am I covered if I hit someone who is not insured?
  • I have health insurance so do I need medical payments coverage?
  • Can good grades get a discount?

If you're not sure about those questions but you know they apply to you, you may need to chat with an agent. If you don't have a local agent, take a second and complete this form.

If prices rise, they simply switch companies in-house which is easy for the insured.

Exclusive Agents

These type of agents can only provide pricing for a single company and some examples include Farmers Insurance, State Farm, Allstate, and AAA. These agents are unable to place coverage with different providers so they are skilled at selling on more than just price. These agents are trained well on their company's products which aids in selling service over price. Consumers often use the same agent partially due to the prominence of the brand and the convenience of having all coverages with one company.
