It’s amazing but the vast majority of insurance customers renewed their policy with the same company for four years or more, and nearly half have never compared rate quotes at all. Anchorage drivers can cut their rates by almost 35% a year just by getting comparison quotes, but they won’t spend time to find lower-cost insurance by shopping around.
If you want to find the absolute lowest rates, then the best way to get cheaper car insurance rates is to annually compare prices from providers who can sell car insurance in Anchorage. Price quotes can be compared by following these steps.
- Step 1: Read about how insurance companies determine prices and the things you can change to keep rates in check. Many things that cause high rates like your driving record and bad credit can be improved by paying attention to minor details.
- Step 2: Quote rates from direct carriers, independent agents, and exclusive agents. Exclusive agents and direct companies can only quote rates from one company like Progressive or State Farm, while agents who are independent can provide rate quotes from multiple sources.

- Step 3: Compare the new rates to the price on your current policy to see if cheaper Touareg coverage is available. If you can save money and make a switch, ensure coverage does not lapse between policies.
- Step 4: Notify your current company of your intention to cancel your current car insurance policy and submit any necessary down payment along with the completed application to your new agent or company. As soon as you have the new policy, safely store the certificate verifying coverage along with the vehicle’s registration papers.
An essential thing to point out is to try to use the same coverage limits and deductibles on every price quote and and to look at as many companies as you can. Doing this enables an apples-to-apples comparison and a complete price analysis.

Three main reasons to buy insurance
Despite the potentially high cost of Volkswagen Touareg insurance, maintaining insurance is required in Alaska but also provides important benefits.
First, most states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means the state requires specific limits of liability insurance if you drive a vehicle. In Alaska these limits are 50/100/25 which means you must have $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
Second, if you have a loan on your Volkswagen Touareg, it’s guaranteed your bank will stipulate that you have full coverage to ensure they get paid if you total the vehicle. If you default on your policy, the bank may buy a policy for your Volkswagen at an extremely high rate and require you to reimburse them for it.
Third, insurance preserves not only your Volkswagen but also your financial assets. It will also pay for hospital and medical expenses for you, your passengers, and anyone else injured in an accident. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, will also pay for a defense attorney if someone files suit against you as the result of an accident. If damage is caused by hail or an accident, collision and comprehensive coverages will pay to repair the damage.
The benefits of having insurance are without a doubt worth the cost, especially if you ever need it. The average driver in America overpays more than $850 per year so compare rates each time the policy renews to ensure rates are competitive.

Should you pay for full coverage?
There is no clear-cut formula of when to eliminate physical damage coverage, but there is a general guideline. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than around 10% of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.
For example, let’s assume your Volkswagen Touareg settlement value is $5,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most you would receive is $4,000 after paying your policy deductible. If you are paying over $400 annually for your policy with full coverage, then it might be time to buy liability only.
There are some circumstances where only buying liability is not financially feasible. If you haven’t satisfied your loan, you have to carry full coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should keep full coverage.

Which is the best insurance?
When it comes to buying your policy, there really isn’t a “best” method to buy coverage. Every situation is different so your insurance needs to address that.
For instance, these questions might help in determining whether or not you will benefit from professional help.
- Does my policy pay for OEM or aftermarket parts?
- Is a new car covered when I drive it off the dealer lot?
- Should I rate my vehicle as business use?
- Do I pay less if my vehicle is kept in my garage?
- Should I carry comprehensive and collision coverage?
- Can I cancel at any time?
If you can’t answer these questions but you know they apply to you, you might consider talking to an agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, simply complete this short form or click here for a list of insurance companies in your area.
