How does a vanishing deductible work?
Your car insurance deductible is the amount you pay when you file a claim before your insurance coverage kicks in. When you select a disappearing deductible option, your insurer will typically reduce your deductible for each policy period that you don’t have an accident or violation. This decrease can either be a percentage or a set dollar amount. Every time you renew your policy without having an accident or a violation, your deductible decreases until you get to $0.
