Prices based on single female driver age 50, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $250 deductibles, and Wisconsin minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, multi-policy, multi-vehicle, homeowner, and safe-driver. Rates do not factor in garaging location in Milwaukee which can lower or raise premiums significantly.
Comparison of policy deductibles
The chart below demonstrates how deductible levels and can impact Audi A5 yearly insurance costs for different age groups of insureds. The premiums assume a single female driver, full coverage, and no discounts are factored in.
Does it make sense to buy full coverage?
The diagram below visualizes the comparison of Audi A5 insurance rates with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying liability only. Data assumes a clean driving record, no at-fault accidents, $100 deductibles, single female driver, and no discounts are taken into consideration.
Should you buy full coverage or liability only?
There is no exact rule for eliminating comp and collision coverage, but there is a general guideline. If the annual cost of having full coverage is 10% or more of the replacement cost minus the deductible, then you may want to consider only buying liability coverage.
For example, let's assume your Audi A5 settlement value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most you would receive is $5,000 after the deductible is paid. If you are currently paying more than $500 annually for comprehensive and collision coverage, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.
There are some cases where removing full coverage is not a good idea. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you have to carry full coverage to protect the lienholder's interest in the vehicle. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not eliminate full coverage.
The largest companies are not always cheapest
Consumers in Wisconsin can't escape the ads for the lowest price car insurance from companies such as State Farm, Allstate and GEICO. All the ads advertise claims that people will save if you just switch your policy.
But how can every company give you a lower rate on Audi A5 insurance in Milwaukee? It's all in how they say it.
All the different companies have an ideal profile for the type of insured that makes them money. A good example of a profitable customer might be described as a married male, carries high limits, and chooses high deductibles. Someone who matches those parameters will get low auto insurance rates as well as cut their rates substantially.
Potential customers who fall outside the ideal profile will have to pay higher premium rates which results in the customer not buying. If you listen to the ad wording, they say "drivers who switch" not "all people who quote" save money. That's why insurance companies can make the claims of big savings. Because of the profiling, you really need to compare price quotes frequently. It's just too difficult to predict with any certainty which company will have the lowest rates for your situation.
Auto insurance is not optional but you don't have to overpay
Despite the high insurance cost for a Audi A5 in Milwaukee, maintaining insurance may be required for several reasons.
- Most states have minimum mandated liability insurance limits which means state laws require specific minimum amounts of liability coverage in order to license the vehicle. In Wisconsin 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 took out a loan on your A5, more than likely the lender will force you to have comprehensive coverage to guarantee their interest in the vehicle. If you default on your policy, the bank will be required to insure your Audi at a more expensive rate and make you pay the higher price.
- Insurance safeguards not only your Audi but also your financial assets. It will also cover hospital and medical expenses incurred in an accident. One policy coverage, liability insurance, also pays expenses related to your legal defense if you are sued as the result of an accident. If your car is damaged in a storm or accident, your policy will pay to have it repaired.
The benefits of buying auto insurance are without a doubt worth the cost, particularly for liability claims. Unknowingly, the average driver is currently overpaying as much as $865 each year so compare rates once a year at a minimum to be sure current rates are still competitive.

Learn about auto insurance coverages for an Audi A5
Learning about specific coverages of a auto insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Below you'll find the usual coverages available from auto insurance companies.
Collision coverages - Collision coverage covers damage to your A5 resulting from a collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against things such as backing into a parked car, scraping a guard rail and driving through your garage door. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible on your A5 to bring the cost down.
Liability coverages - Liability insurance can cover damage or injury you incur to other's property or people by causing an accident. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show limits of 25/50/10 which means $25,000 bodily injury coverage, $50,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $10,000.
Liability insurance covers claims such as court costs, funeral expenses and legal defense fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy higher limits if possible. Wisconsin requires minimum liability limits of 25/50/10 but drivers should carry higher limits.
Uninsured and underinsured coverage - Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle's occupants and also any damage incurred to your Audi A5.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (25/50/10), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.
Comprehensive coverages - Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, damage from getting keyed, fire damage and vandalism. The maximum amount your auto insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Coverage for medical payments - Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for bills like pain medications, funeral costs and prosthetic devices. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
