It's amazing but a large majority of consumers renewed their policy with the same company for at least four years, and nearly half have never compared rate quotes at all. Lubbock insurance shoppers could save themselves approximately $1,770 a year just by shopping around, but they mistakenly think it's difficult to compare rates.

Insurance rates Volkswagen Eos in LubbockThe best way to find more affordable Volkswagen Eos insurance is to compare quotes annually from providers who can sell car insurance in Lubbock. Prices can be compared by completing these steps.

  1. Get a basic knowledge of how companies set rates and the modifications you can make to keep rates down. Many factors that result in higher prices such as inattentive driving and a less-than-favorable credit rating can be amended by being financially responsible and driving safely.
  2. Get rate quotes from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Direct and exclusive agents can provide rates from a single company like Progressive or Farmers Insurance, while agents who are independent can quote rates for a wide range of insurance providers.
  3. Compare the new rate quotes to your current policy premium to determine if switching companies saves money. If you find a lower rate quote and make a switch, verify that coverage does not lapse between policies.
  4. Give notification to your current company of your intent to cancel your current policy. Submit payment and a completed application to the new company. Immediately upon receiving it, place the new certificate of insurance in your vehicle's glove compartment or console.

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

We can estimate from the data above that using a $100 deductible costs approximately $29 more each month or $348 each year than opting for the higher $500 deductible. Since the policyholder would be required to pay $400 more if you file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you have at a minimum 14 months between claims, you would probably be better off if you elect the higher deductible. The table below illustrates how this determination is made.

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $134
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $105
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $29
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $100): $400
Divide difference by monthly savings: $400 / $29
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 14 months

One big caveat is that increasing deductibles to lower your rates means you will have to cover more of the damage yourself when you have to file a claim. It will be required that you have some extra funds in order to pay the higher deductible in order to repair your vehicle.

The information below illustrates how your choice of deductibles and can change Volkswagen Eos insurance premiums for different insured age categories. The costs are based on a married male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Cheaper rates by getting discounts

Companies don't always list all discounts very clearly, so the next list breaks down both well-publicized as well as some of the hidden credits that may apply to you.Cheaper insurance with discounts

  • Good Grades Discount - Maintaining excellent grades could provide a savings of up to 20% or more. The good student discount can last up to age 25.
  • Passenger Safety Discount - Vehicles equipped with air bags or automatic seat belts may qualify for discounts of 20% or more.
  • Pay Upfront and Save - If you pay your entire premium ahead of time rather than paying in monthly installments you may have a lower total premium amount.
  • Accident Forgiveness - This one is not really a discount per se, but companies like Progressive, Allstate, and Liberty Mutual allow you one accident before your rates go up with the catch being you have to be claim-free for a certain period of time.
  • Drive Less and Save - Fewer annual miles on your Volkswagen may enable drivers to earn slightly better insurance rates than normal.
  • Sign Online - A few larger online companies will give you a small discount for buying a policy and signing up digitally online.
  • Claim Free - Claim-free drivers get the best insurance rates as opposed to insureds who have frequent claims or accidents.
  • Home Ownership Discount - Owning your own home or condo can help you save on insurance due to the fact that maintaining a home is proof of financial responsibility.
  • Theft Prevention Discount - Anti-theft and alarm system equipped vehicles have a lower chance of being stolen and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.
  • Membership in Organizations - Affiliation with certain professional organizations could qualify you for a break when shopping for insurance.

As is typical with insurance, most of the big mark downs will not be given to the entire policy premium. Some only reduce specific coverage prices like liability and collision coverage. So when the math indicates all those discounts means the company will pay you, companies wouldn't make money that way.

The information below compares Volkswagen Eos car insurance rates with and without discounts applied. The data assumes a male driver, no claims or violations, Texas state minimum liability limits, full physical damage coverage, and $500 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with multi-car, multi-policy, safe-driver, homeowner, marriage, and claim-free discounts applied.

Components of Your Volkswagen Eos Insurance Rates

Many things are used when pricing auto insurance. Some of the criteria are obvious such as traffic violations, although some other factors are less apparent such as whether you are married or your financial responsibility.

Lower rates for married couples - Being married actually saves money when buying car insurance. Having a significant other may mean you are more mature than a single person and insurance companies like that drivers who are married are more cautious.

Buy a safe car and pay less - Cars with five star safety ratings can get you lower premiums. The safest vehicles reduce injuries and better occupant protection means less money paid by your insurance company passed on to you as lower rates. If your Volkswagen Eos scored better than an "acceptable" rating on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety website it may be receiving lower rates.

Poor credit can mean higher rates - An insured's credit rating is a large factor in determining premium rates. If your credit is not that good, you could be paying less to insure your Volkswagen Eos by taking the time to improve your credit score. Insureds with very good credit scores tend to be less risk to insure than drivers with lower credit scores.

Put fewer miles on your vehicle - Driving a lot of miles in a year the higher your rates will be. The majority of insurers charge to insure your cars based on how the vehicle is used. Autos left parked in the garage receive lower rates as compared to vehicles used primarily for driving to work. A policy that improperly rates your Eos may be wasting your money. It's always a good idea to double check that your car insurance policy properly reflects how each vehicle is driven, because it can save money.

Uninterrupted coverage saves money - Going without insurance is a sure-fire way to increase your renewal premiums. In addition to paying higher rates, the inability to provide proof of insurance might get you a fine, jail time, or a revoked license.

Keep car insurance claims to a minimum - If you are a frequent claim filer, you can look forward to either a policy non-renewal or much higher rates. Insurance companies in Texas give the lowest premiums to policyholders who do not rely on their insurance for small claims. Your car insurance is meant to be used in the event of larger claims.

More traffic means higher claims - Living in smaller towns and rural areas of the country is a good thing when trying to find low car insurance rates. Less people translates into fewer accidents in addition to lower liability claims. People in densely populated areas tend to have more traffic problems and more time behind the wheel. Spending more time driving means more chance of being in an accident.

Performance affects insurance costs - The make and model of the car you are insuring makes a big difference in your car insurance bill. Small economy passenger vehicles receive the most favorable rates, but the cost you end up paying is determined by many additional factors.

The next chart uses these assumptions: married male driver age 30, full coverage with $250 deductibles, and no discounts or violations. It compares Volkswagen Eos insurance premiums compared to other makes and models that have a range of performances.

Volkswagen Eos claim probability - Auto insurance companies take into consideration insurance loss statistics for every vehicle to calculate a rate that will offset any claims. Vehicles that statistically have higher claim frequency or loss amount will have higher rates. The data below shows the compiled insurance loss statistics for Volkswagen Eos vehicles.

For each insurance policy coverage type, the claim amount for all vehicles as a whole is a value of 100. Values under 100 are indicative of better than average losses, while values that are above 100 indicate more frequent claims or an increased chance of a larger loss.
