Auto insurance can be complicated for veterans and military personnel.  We face unique situations that require special insurance, whether that’s insuring your stored vehicles or making sure your cars are covered during your PCS move.  In addition, there are many companies that offer special discounts for both veterans and active duty service members.

The good news is that with the advances in technology you can now get free auto insurance quotes from multiple companies based on your specific needs. You can even download your new ID cards, right to your cell phone or tablet. Gone are the days where you must wait two weeks or more for your policy and ID cards to arrive in the mail. This allows you to obtain new insurance coverage almost instantly!

Military Discounts

Many auto insurance companies offer discounts for active duty military personnel, veterans and members of the National Guard.  Companies like Geico offer up to 15% off your auto insurance policy.  The state of Louisiana offers a special insurance discount for service members. There are discounts offered by a few agencies when you store your vehicle while you are on active duty.  Some companies also offer a discount if your car is kept on a military base. Are you enrolled in a service academy like West Point?  There are discounts for you, too. In addition, many agencies offer a discount for federal employees, so there are a few additional ways you can save on your car insurance.

Non-Military Discounts

In addition to military discounts, you might also be eligible for discounts based on other factors.  Teenage drivers can save a small percentage at some companies by earning good grades.  Non-smokers, driving low annual miles, having a good driving record, maintaining a good credit score, using anti-theft devices in your car…even going accident-free for an extended period of time can save you additional money on your car insurance. Get credit for your good driving record and save money.  Request a quote now.

Deployments and Auto Insurance

Are you about to be deployed and not sure what to do with your car? Several companies offer rate assistance for stored vehicles.  Ask your agency for a storage protection plan to make sure your car is protected while you’re away.  Some insurance companies will also allow you to cancel your policy and reinstate it when you return without a lapse in coverage penalty.  It’s also a good idea to leave a spare set of keys with someone you trust while overseas as well in case there’s an emergency.  Most insurance companies are very accommodating for emergency coverage changes, especially if you are headed to a region defined as an “imminent danger pay area” by the U.S. Department of Defense. Don’t forget to change your registration, see our rules and guidelines for military vehicle registration.

International Auto Insurance Coverage

Are you heading overseas and need special coverage for your vehicles in another country?  Several insurance agencies offer full protection while your car is outside of the United States.  Some companies will also assist with physically shipping your car, motorcycle, van or other personal property. They’ll take care of all the registration and paperwork too.  Overseas car insurance is typically more expensive than domestic coverage but the peace of mind is well worth the extra cost.

Bundling Insurance

Don’t forget by combining your insurance policies you can save even more with multiple-policy discounts. Having all of your coverage in one place can keep hundreds of dollars a year in your pocket.
