The data above shows the average cost of a car insurance policy per year with no violations or accidents is $1,366. Receive one speeding ticket and the average cost increases to $1,588, an increase of $222 each year. Next add two accidents along with the one speeding ticket and the 12-month cost of insurance for active military increases to an average of $3,457.

The example below illustrates how choosing a deductible can increase or decrease insurance rates when searching for cheap insurance for active military. The premiums are based on a married female driver, comp and collision included, and no discounts are applied to the premium.
As shown above, a 40-year-old driver could save $252 a year by switching their comprehensive and collision coverages from a $100 deductible to a $500 deductible, or save $380 by changing to a $1,000 deductible. Younger drivers, like the 20-year-old example, could save as much as $624 or more just by choosing higher deductibles. When insureds make the decision to increase the deductibles on their policy, it is a good idea to have plenty of discretionary funds to offset the extra out-of-pocket expense, which is the one shortcoming of high deductibles.
