One way to lower your annual premium is by choosing a higher deductible. If you do pick a high deductible, you will need to make sure you have the deductible amount ready when you file a claim. Here's what you can expect as a deductible for various average annual premiums:

If you choose to increase your deductible from $1,000 to $2,000, you would need to remain claim free for six years to save money.
