Does your insurance rate decrease over time?
Will my rate ever decrease? I'm currently in the military and move a lot. My car insurance can fluctuate depending on where I'm living. I'm with USAA right now.

“There are a variety of factors that go into car insurance rates. This can include:
- your age
- where you live
- your driving record
- type of coverage you require
Moving can cause your rate to fluctuate as every state has different insurance requirements. The types of claims drivers submit in different areas can also vary.
Since you’re in the military, USAA tends to have the best rates for military members.
If you continue to stay with USAA, you may begin to see your rate decrease due to loyalty to the company. If you remain accident free for a long period of time, you should also see your rate decrease.
You can also shop around using the free Jerry periodically to confirm you’re still receiving the best rate.”

Will the collision coverage from my credit card company apply to my rental car if I don't have collision coverage on my regular auto policy?
I am renting a car this weekend to drive out of state. My personal car is a hunk of junk and I only carry liability coverage on it. I know my Visa card will pay for collision coverage for the rental, but is that still the case if my current auto policy doesn't have collision?
