The chart below demonstrates how deductibles can increase or decrease premium costs when trying to find cheap insurance for uninsured drivers. Data assumes a married female driver, comp and collision included, and no other discounts are factored in.
In the chart above, a 50-year-old driver could lower rates by $268 a year by switching their comprehensive and collision coverages from a $100 deductible to a $500 deductible, or save $406 by choosing a $1,000 deductible. Even younger insureds, like the 20-year-old, could potentially save $666 or more just by using higher deductibles.
