It takes a few minutes, but the best way to find more affordable auto insurance rates is to compare prices at least once a year from providers in Portland. This can be done by following these guidelines.

First, try to comprehend how insurance companies determine prices and the changes you can make to keep rates down. Many rating criteria that drive up the price such as traffic violations, accidents, and an unacceptable credit score can be remedied by making minor driving habit or lifestyle changes. Continue reading for ideas to prevent expensive rate increases and find available discounts that you may qualify for.

Second, get rate quotes from direct carriers, independent agents, and exclusive agents. Direct and exclusive agents can give quotes from a single company like Progressive or State Farm, while independent agents can provide rate quotes from multiple insurance companies.

Third, compare the price quotes to your current policy premium and see if there is a cheaper rate in Portland. If you can save some money and change companies, make sure coverage is continuous and does not lapse.

Fourth, give notification to your current company of your intent to cancel your current coverage and submit the required down payment along with the signed application to the new company. Immediately keep the new certificate of insurance with your vehicle's registration.

The critical component of shopping around is that you use similar limits and deductibles on every quote and to quote with as many car insurance companies as possible. This provides an apples-to-apples comparison and the best price selection.

Prices above based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Oregon minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-policy, multi-vehicle, safe-driver, homeowner, and claim-free. Table data does not factor in vehicle garaging location which can alter auto insurance rates substantially.

Based on the above data, using a $100 deductible will cost in the ballpark of $46 more each month or $552 every year averaged for all TT models than buying the higher $1,000 deductible. Since you would pay $900 more if you file a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you have at least 20 months between claims, you would probably come out ahead if you elect the higher deductible.

How to determine if raising deductibles makes sense

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $132
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $86
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $46
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 - $100): $900
Divide difference by monthly savings: $900 / $46
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 20 months

One big caveat is that a higher deductible means you will have to pay more out-of-pocket when you have a comprehensive or collision claim. It will be required that you have enough extra money in the event you need to pay more to get your vehicle repaired.

Cost difference between full coverage and liability

The illustration below visualizes the comparison of Audi TT annual premium costs with and without full coverage. The premium estimates are based on no violations or accidents, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no discounts are applied.

When to stop buying full coverage

There is no exact rule to drop full coverage, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the yearly cost of full coverage is more than around 10% of the replacement cost minus the deductible, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.

For example, let's assume your Audi TT settlement value is $7,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most your company would pay you is $6,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If you are currently paying more than $600 a year for comprehensive and collision coverage, then you might consider buying liability only.

There are some situations where dropping physical damage coverage is not financially feasible. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you have to carry full coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if your finances do not allow you to purchase a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not eliminate full coverage.

Why you need to buy car insurance

Even though it can be expensive, insurance is required by state law in Oregon and it also provides benefits you may not be aware of.

  • The majority of states have mandatory insurance requirements which means it is punishable by state law to not carry a minimum amount of liability insurance in order to drive the car legally. In Oregon these limits are 25/50/20 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $20,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If you took out a loan on your TT, almost all lenders will make it a condition of the loan that you have insurance to ensure loan repayment if the vehicle is totaled. If coverage lapses or is canceled, the lender may have to buy a policy to insure your Audi for a lot more money and require you to fork over a much higher amount than you were paying before.
  • Insurance protects your vehicle and your assets. It will also reimburse you for all forms of medical expenses incurred in an accident. Liability coverage also pays for attorney fees and expenses if you cause an accident and are sued. If mother nature or an accident damages your car, your policy will pay to have it repaired.

The benefits of insuring your car more than offset the price you pay, especially for larger claims. But the average American driver is wasting up to $850 per year so compare rates at every policy renewal to ensure rates are inline.

Auto insurance policy coverages for an Audi TT

Understanding the coverages of a auto insurance policy can be of help when determining the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. These are the normal coverages available from auto insurance companies.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and damage to your Audi TT.

Since many Oregon drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (25/50/20), their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are set the same as your liability limits.

Coverage for collisions

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage protects against claims such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, crashing into a building, sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a parking meter and hitting a mailbox. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. You can also raise the deductible on your TT to save money on collision insurance.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for immediate expenses for surgery, X-ray expenses and prosthetic devices. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover you and your occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive auto coverage

This covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like falling objects, hitting a bird, rock chips in glass, theft and hail damage. The maximum payout a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.

Auto liability insurance

This protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property in an accident. Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/20 which means a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a limit of $20,000 paid for damaged property. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.

Liability coverage protects against things such as bail bonds, structural damage, pain and suffering, loss of income and court costs. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but buy higher limits if possible. Oregon state minimum liability requirements are 25/50/20 but it's recommended drivers buy more liability than the minimum.

The chart below shows why buying low liability limits may not provide you with enough coverage.
