A recent car insurance study revealed that the vast majority of car insurance customers kept their policy with the same company for at least the last four years, and 38% of customers have never compared quotes from other companies. New Mexico insurance shoppers could save up to 40% each year by just shopping around, but they mistakenly think it's difficult to find affordable rates by getting comparison quotes.

Insurance quote for Audi Q7 in AlbuquerqueTo save the most money, the best way to get affordable Audi Q7 insurance is to regularly compare prices from different companies in Albuquerque. Rate comparisons can be done by completing these steps.

Step 1: Try to learn about policy coverages and the things you can change to prevent expensive coverage. Many factors that cause rate increases like at-fault accidents, speeding tickets, and poor credit can be remedied by paying attention to minor details. Later in this article we will cover information to lower rates and get additional discounts.

Step 2: Compare price quotes from direct carriers, independent agents, and exclusive agents. Direct and exclusive agents can give quotes from one company like Progressive or State Farm, while independent agencies can provide prices from many different companies.

Step 3: Compare the new quotes to your existing rates to see if switching to a new carrier will save money. If you can save some money, make sure there is no coverage gap between policies.

Step 4: Notify your agent or company of your intention to cancel your current policy and submit the required down payment along with the signed application to your new insurance company. As soon as coverage is bound, keep the new certificate verifying proof of insurance with your vehicle's registration.

The key thing to know about shopping around is to try to compare the same physical damage deductibles and liability limits on each quote and and to get rate quotes from as many carriers as you can. Doing this guarantees a level playing field and and a good selection of different prices.

If you are already insured, you will definitely be able to get lower rates using these techniques. Pricing the most affordable policy in Albuquerque is easy if you know what you're doing.

Data based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and New Mexico minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, multi-vehicle, homeowner, multi-policy, and safe-driver. Price estimates do not factor in specific zip code location which can decrease or increase insurance rates significantly.

We can derive from the above data that using a $100 deductible costs an average of $31 more each month or $372 annually than quoting the higher $500 deductible. Since the policyholder would be required to pay $400 more to settle a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you have at a minimum 13 months between claims, you would most likely save money if you choose the higher deductible. The illustration below shows a better example of how this calculation is made.

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $133
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $102
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $31
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $100): $400
Divide difference by monthly savings: $400 / $31
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 13 months

An important thing to remember is that higher deductibles results in a higher out-of-pocket expense when you have to file a claim. You need some extra savings in the event you need to pay the deductible.

Comparison of full coverage and liability-only policies

The information below illustrates the comparison of Audi Q7 insurance premiums when comparing full coverage to state minimum liability only. The prices are based on no tickets, no at-fault accidents, $1,000 deductibles, single marital status, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

Guidelines for eliminating full coverage

There is no exact formula for eliminating full coverage on your policy, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the annual cost of comprehensive and collision coverage is about 10% or more of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

For example, let's pretend your Audi Q7 replacement cost is $8,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most your company would pay you is $7,000 after the deductible is paid. If you are paying more than $700 a year for physical damage coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

There are some scenarios where only buying liability is not advised. If you haven't paid off your 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 damaged, you should maintain full coverage.

Cheaper rates with discounts

Auto insurance can be pricey, but you might already qualify for some discounts that you may not even know about. Certain discounts will be applied when you purchase, but occasionally some discounts must be asked about before being credited. If they aren't giving you every credit you qualify for, you may be paying too high a price.

  • Braking Control Discount - Cars and trucks that have anti-lock braking systems are much safer to drive and will save you 10% or more on Q7 insurance in Albuquerque.
  • Driver Training Discounts - Taking part in a course that instructs on driving safety can save you 5% or more and easily recoup the cost of the course.
  • Low Miles Discount - Low mileage vehicles could qualify for lower premium rates due to less chance of an accident.
  • One Accident Forgiven - This one isn't a discount, but companies like State Farm and Progressive may permit one accident before raising your premiums so long as you are claim-free for a certain period of time.
  • 55 and Retired - Drivers that qualify as senior citizens may be able to get a slight reduction on a Albuquerque auto insurance quote.
  • Full Payment Discount - If you pay your bill all at once instead of making monthly payments you can avoid monthly service charges.
  • College Student Discount - Older children who are attending college and leave their car at home can be insured at a reduced rate.
  • Drivers Ed for Students - Teen drivers should participate in a local driver's education class as it will make them better drivers and lower rates.
  • Lower Rates for Military - Having an actively deployed family member could be rewarded with lower auto insurance rates.

One thing to note about discounts is that most discount credits are not given to your bottom line cost. The majority will only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like liability, collision or medical payments. So even though you would think all the discounts add up to a free policy, nobody gets a free ride.

The example below visualizes the comparison of Audi Q7 insurance rates with and without some available policy discounts. The premiums assume a female driver, a clean driving record, no at-fault accidents, New Mexico state minimum liability limits, comp and collision included, and $1,000 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with multi-policy, claim-free, multi-car, safe-driver, homeowner, and marriage discounts applied.

Larger auto insurance companies and a partial list of their discounts are detailed below.

  • GEICO has discounts for seat belt use, membership and employees, good student, multi-vehicle, federal employee, and defensive driver.
  • SAFECO may offer discounts for bundle discounts, accident prevention training, drive less, homeowner, teen safety rewards, and multi-car.
  • State Farm discounts include student away at school, multiple autos, Drive Safe & Save, Steer Clear safe driver discount, passive restraint, and good driver.
  • MetLife offers premium reductions for defensive driver, good driver, multi-policy, accident-free, claim-free, good student
  • 21st Century includes discounts for defensive driver, student driver, 55 and older, theft prevention, homeowners, automatic seat belts, and early bird.
  • Progressive may include discounts for homeowner, good student, online quote discount, continuous coverage, online signing, and multi-vehicle.

When comparing rates, check with each company which discounts you may be entitled to. Savings might not apply in Albuquerque.
