Audi R8

We don’t have to tell you how great sports cars are, but we must mention that in order to get a cheaper insurance for these precious vehicles there are a couple of things to check on your to-do list. Needless to say, an insurance plan for a sports car comes with pricier premiums in comparison to the one you get for a regular vehicle. With this article we’ll guide you through some of the actions that you can take in order to lower the insurance for a sports car.

First and foremost, in order to be eligible for lower premiums, you must have a credit rating that is in an excellent shape and you must have had this rating for several years. Before applying for an insurance policy for your sports car, you need to make sure that you don’t have any personal credit card debt.

A car that has a lot of safety features will qualify for a more affordable insurance. For this reason, it might be a smart idea to equip your car with stability and/or traction control, anti lock brakes, safety airbags, along with some anti-theft devices. Not only you will be more secure behind the wheel of your sports car, but you will also save a pretty penny when signing the insurance deal.

If you have been a good driver and your records are impeccable, the insurance companies will offer you lower rates for getting the car insured. In order to get affordable quotes for the vehicle, you will have to provide accurate information about it so that you will benefit from the best quotes available.

You’ll have to do some comparison shopping before choosing the insurance provide. All companies offer different quotes so it is better that you analyze them all before you make a decision. Some of these insurers come up with important discounts during the holidays or special events so keep a close eye and you might save a few of your precious dollars.

You have to understand the fact that when you buy insurance for your shiny sports car, the valuation method says a lot regarding how good the policy will do you:

The “Actual Cash Value” will assign a certain value to your vehicle at the time of your loss. This decision is made by the insurer and they don’t ask your input about this one.

The “Stated Value” will base the value of your sports car on a value that you set. Needless to say, you will have to provide some sort of justification for the value you have chosen.

The “Agreed Value” refers to the established value of your sports car that is based upon a negotiation between you and the insurer when you sign up the documents of the policy.

In order to reduce the costs for insurance, you might want to add some usage restrictions like putting a mileage limitation, driving the vehicle at rallies and shows only and mention how you will be storing the car.

It is recommended that you get in touch with at least three insurers before making a final decision. Try to find one that has previous experience in dealing with sports cars because they’ll understand what you need and will try to offer exactly just that.
