When buying insurance for your vehicle, there are many things to think about. One of the big things is to think about your deductible amount. Deductible is the amount that you pay if you have an accident, theft or etc. with your car. The insurance company kicks in after the deductible is paid. Choosing a higher deductible can reduce the amount of your premium considerably. For example, if you choose a $500 deductible instead of a $200 deductible, you can lower the cost of your premium by as much as 30%. You have to consider that you are going to have to pay the amount of your deductible, say it's $500 before your insurance kicks in, so be prepared for that. But think about having even a $1,000 deductible that could reduce your premium by as much as 40%. That's pretty huge.
