Most auto insurance carriers offer military discounts and the ability to “pause” your coverage during deployment. What you need to know is how that insurance carrier views you as a driver. The company you are considering might target drivers with tickets (non standard) or prefer someone with a clean record (preferred). They may also might be competitive in one state but have higher cost in another.
The best way to find out is to enter your zip code in the box above to start the process of getting prices. Because the quotes you are given are real time rates based on the info you provide, you will be sure you are not wasting your time.
Many on other auto insurance web sites people are given average surveys prices or estimates, not rates specific to them. Or a thank you for coming page, and assurances someone will call them. Not what someone on active duty has time to play around with.
The two large players in auto insurance for military or government personnel are USAA (United Services Automobile Association) and Geico (Government Employees Insurance Company).
