Premium data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and California minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, homeowner, safe-driver, multi-vehicle, and multi-policy. Prices do not factor in vehicle location which can decrease or increase prices noticeably.

Based on this data, using a $250 deductible will cost in the ballpark of $39 more each month or $468 every year averaged for all A4 models than buying the higher $1,000 deductible. Since you would have to pay $750 more out of your own pocket with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you usually have at a minimum 19 months between claim filings, you would more than likely save some money by selecting a higher deductible.

The illustration below demonstrates how choosing different deductibles and can change Audi A4 insurance prices for each different age group. The price estimates are based on a single male driver, full physical damage coverage, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

Does full coverage make sense?

The illustration below compares Audi A4 annual premium costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in California. Data assumes no violations or accidents, $500 deductibles, single marital status, and no policy discounts are applied.

When to stop buying comprehensive and collision coverage

There isn’t a steadfast formula to delete comp and collision coverage, but there is a general convention. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is more than around 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

For example, let’s assume your Audi A4 replacement value is $4,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most your company will settle for is $3,000 after paying your deductible. If you are currently paying more than $300 a year for physical damage coverage, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.

There are a few situations where dropping full coverage is not in your best interest. If you haven’t satisfied your loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage in order to satisfy the requirements of the loan. Also, if you don’t have enough money to buy a different vehicle in the even your car is totaled, you should not drop full coverage.

The Audi A4 Insurance Rate Equation

Smart consumers have a good feel for a few of the rating criteria that come into play when calculating your policy premiums. When consumers understand what impacts premium levels, this helps enable you to make changes that can earn you better insurance rates.

Shown below are some of the items used by your company to calculate prices.

Lower performance equals lower insurance costs – The performance level of the car you need to insure makes a substantial difference in your car insurance bill. The cheapest insurance rates tend to be for the lowest performance passenger vehicles, but other factors influence the final cost greatly.

The following chart assumes a single female driver age 50, full coverage with $500 deductibles, and no discounts or violations. The data compares Audi A4 insurance rates compared to other models that have a range of risk factors.

Never let your insurance policy lapse – Allowing your insurance policy to lapse is a guaranteed way to trigger a rate increase. In addition to paying higher premiums, getting caught without coverage may earn you a steep fine or even jail time. You may then be required to submit proof of financial responsibility or a SR-22 with the California motor vehicle department to get your license reinstated.

Lower rates for safer cars – Safer cars tend to have better insurance rates. Safer cars reduce the chance of injuries and lower rates of occupant injuries means lower claim amounts and more competitive rates for policyholders. If your Audi A4 is rated at least an “acceptable” rating on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety website or four stars on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website you are probably receiving a discount.

Better prices with anti-theft devices – Driving a car that has an advanced theft prevention system can help lower your premiums. Anti-theft features such as OnStar, LoJack tracking, and tamper alarms all aid in stopping auto theft and help lower rates.

Big cities mean more claims – Living in a small town is a positive aspect when talking about insurance. Fewer people means a lower chance of having an accident in addition to fewer liability claims. People in densely populated areas have more road rage incidents and longer commutes to work. Spending more time driving means higher likelihood of an accident.

Do you really need the extra coverages? – There are many add-on coverages that can add up if you aren’t diligent. Coverage for things like rental car coverage, death and dismemberment, and additional equipment coverage are some examples. The coverages may be enticing when deciding what coverages you need, but if you’ve never needed them in the past get rid of them and save.

Male prices may be higher – Statistics have proven that men are more aggressive behind the wheel. This data doesn’t prove that males are worse at driving than females. Men and women are in accidents at a similar rate, but men have costlier accidents. In addition to higher claims, males also get cited for more serious violations like DWI (DUI) or reckless driving.

The information below shows the comparison of Audi A4 car insurance rates for male and female drivers. The premium estimates are based on a clean driving record, no claims, comprehensive and collision coverage, $1,000 deductibles, marital status is single, and no discounts are factored in.

Annual mileage and car insurance rates – The higher the miles on your Audi in a year the higher your rates will be. Most companies rate vehicles based on their usage. Autos that sit idle most of the time cost less to insure than vehicles that have high annual mileage. Improper usage on your A4 is just wasting money. It’s always a good idea to double check that your insurance declarations sheet shows the correct driver usage, because improper ratings can cost you money.

Insurance loss data for Audi A4 vehicles – Companies take into consideration historical loss data for every vehicle as a tool for profitable underwriting. Models that the data shows to have higher losses will cost more to insure. The information below illustrates the insurance loss data used by companies for Audi A4 vehicles.

For each insurance policy coverage type, the claim probability for all vehicles, regardless of make, model or trim level, is set at 100. Numbers that are below 100 suggest a better than average loss history, while percentage numbers above 100 indicate more frequent claims or a tendency for claims to be larger.

These agents are not able to give you multiple price quotes so they have no alternatives for high prices. Exclusive agents are very knowledgeable in insurance sales which helps them compete with independent agents. Drivers often use the same exclusive agent primarily because of the brand legacy and solid financial strength.

Independent Car Insurance Agents

Agents of this type do not work for one specific company and that allows them to write policies through many companies and help determine which has the cheapest rates. If your agent finds better pricing, they simply switch companies in-house without you having to go to a different agency.

Auto insurance is not optional

Despite the high cost, insurance is required in California but also provides important benefits.

First, the majority of states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means the state requires a specific level of liability coverage if you want to drive legally. In California these limits are 15/30/5 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $5,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if your Audi A4 has a lienholder, more than likely the lender will require that you buy insurance to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the bank may buy a policy for your Audi at a significantly higher premium and require you to reimburse them for the expensive policy.

Third, insurance safeguards both your Audi A4 and your personal assets. It will also provide coverage for hospital and medical expenses incurred in an accident. One policy coverage, liability insurance, will also pay attorney fees if you are named as a defendant in an auto accident. If your Audi gets damaged, your auto insurance policy will pay to repair the damage.

The benefits of having insurance more than cancel out the cost, especially for larger claims. Today the average American driver is currently overpaying as much as $820 a year so it’s important to compare rates at least once a year to ensure rates are inline.
