Price data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Georgia minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, safe-driver, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and claim-free. Premium costs do not factor in Atlanta location which can impact price quotes significantly.

Based on these figures, using a $100 deductible costs roughly $23 more each month or $276 each year than selecting the higher $500 deductible. Because you would pay $400 more if you file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you have at a minimum 17 months between claims, you would probably be better off if you choose the higher deductible. The numbers below show an example of how you can perform this determination yourself.

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $110
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $87
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $23
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $100): $400
Divide difference by monthly savings: $400 / $23
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 17 months

One big caveat is that increasing deductibles to save money means you will have to pay more at claim time. That will force you to have a higher level of savings in the event you need to pay more for the deductible.
