Insurance just makes sense

Despite the potentially high cost of Volkswagen Touareg insurance, maintaining insurance is required by state law in New York and it also provides benefits you may not be aware of.

  • Just about all states have minimum liability requirements which means the state requires a specific minimum amount of liability insurance in order to drive the car legally. In New York these limits are 25/50/10 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If you have a lien on your vehicle, more than likely the lender will have a requirement that you have comprehensive coverage to guarantee loan repayment. If you cancel or allow the policy to lapse, the lender may have to buy a policy to insure your Volkswagen at a more expensive rate and force you to pay for the expensive policy.
  • Insurance preserves both your car and your assets. It also can pay for medical transport and hospital expenses incurred in an accident. Liability coverage also covers legal expenses if someone files suit against you as the result of an accident. If your vehicle suffers damage from an accident or hail, comprehensive (other-than-collision) and collision coverage will pay to repair the damage.

The benefits of having insurance definitely exceed the price paid, especially for larger claims. In a recent study of 1,000 drivers, the average customer is overpaying more than $869 every year so it's important to compare rates at every renewal to help ensure money is not being wasted.

Premium data assumes married female driver age 50, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $1000 deductibles, and New York minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, multi-policy, claim-free, multi-vehicle, and homeowner. Rate quotes do not factor in the specific area where the vehicle is garaged which can increase or decrease insurance rates noticeably.

Physical damage deductible comparison

The hardest decision when buying coverage is which deductible level should you buy. The rates below highlight the difference in cost between low and high comp and collision deductibles. The first rate table uses a $100 comprehensive and collision deductible and the second rate chart uses a $500 deductible.

Volkswagen Touareg insurance rates with $100 deductibles
Model Comp Collision Liability Medical UM/UIM Annual Premium Monthly Premium
Touareg 3 Turbo Diesel AWD 4-Dr $286 $558 $264 $16 $80 $1,229 $102
Touareg 3.6 AWD 4-Dr $286 $558 $264 $16 $80 $1,229 $102

Price data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and New York minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-vehicle, claim-free, multi-policy, safe-driver, and homeowner. Price information does not factor in zip code location which can raise or lower rates greatly.

We can derive from the above data that using a $100 deductible costs roughly $23 more each month or $276 a year averaged for all Touareg models than requesting the higher $500 deductible. Because you would be required to pay $400 more out-of-pocket with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you tend to average more than 17 months between claim filings, you would probably come out ahead if you decide on a higher deductible. Here is how you can make your own decision.

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $102
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $79
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $23
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $100): $400
Divide difference by monthly savings: $400 / $23
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 17 months

Insurance rates are higher with tickets and accidents

The example below demonstrates how traffic citations and accidents can raise Volkswagen Touareg car insurance rates for different categories of driver ages. The information is based on a married female driver, full physical damage coverage, $500 deductibles, and no discounts are applied.

Earn discounts to get lower-cost Buffalo insurance rates

Companies offering auto insurance don't always publicize every discount available in a way that's easy to find, so we researched some of the best known as well as the least known credits available to you.Cheaper insurance with discounts

  • Drive Less and Save - Keeping the miles down on your Volkswagen can earn discounted premium rates on garaged vehicles.
  • Early Renewal Discounts - Some insurance companies reward drivers for renewing your policy early. This discount can save up to 10%.
  • Senior Discount - Drivers that qualify as senior citizens can possibly qualify for a slight reduction on a Buffalo car insurance quote.
  • Pay Early and Save - By making one initial payment instead of monthly or quarterly installments you could save 5% or more.
  • Good Students Pay Less - A discount for being a good student can get you a discount of up to 25%. The good student discount can last well after school through age 25.
  • Employee of Federal Government - Employees or retirees of the government may qualify for a discount when you quote Buffalo car insurance but check with your company.

One last thing about discounts, most of the big mark downs will not be given to the overall cost of the policy. Some only apply to individual premiums such as comprehensive or collision. So even though they make it sound like it's possible to get free car insurance, that's just not realistic.

The example below compares Volkswagen Touareg auto insurance rates with and without discounts applied to the premium. The data is based on a male driver, no claims or driving violations, New York state minimum liability limits, full coverage, and $250 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with safe-driver, multi-policy, marriage, homeowner, claim-free, and multi-car discounts applied.

Popular insurance companies and the discounts they provide are shown below.

  • GEICO has discounts for daytime running lights, defensive driver, military active duty, five-year accident-free, anti-lock brakes, multi-vehicle, and emergency military deployment.
  • SAFECO offers discounts for teen safety rewards, accident prevention training, teen safe driver, multi-car, homeowner, safe driver, and anti-lock brakes.
