How Geico Military Discount Compares to USAA
In most states, Geico's overall military insurance premiums are comparable to those of USAA, an insurance company that caters to the U.S. military. However, Geico tends to be less expensive for veterans and those not deployed, while USAA offers better deals to active military, especially members on deployment.
For example, Geico's emergency deployment discount of 25% applies only on deployments to imminent danger zones. USAA’s deployment rates apply anywhere overseas. It’s a good idea to get a quote from each to determine which may be best for you. For more information on the differences between Geico and USAA check out WalletHub's Geico vs USAA comparison.

Car Insurance Affiliation Discounts for Teachers
Geico and Farmers offer discounts to members of certain professional and educational associations, which can help teachers save money. Geico provides savings for members of the Association of American Educators and the American Library Association, along with hundreds of other groups. Farmers, on the other hand, includes a discount of approximately 4% for customers who mark their occupation as teacher when getting a quote.
Certain state-wide educator associations have connections to specific insurance companies as well. For example, members of the Massachusetts Teachers Association and their immediate family can receive up to a 10% discount from Educators Insurance. Other insurance companies like Travelers use similar affinity programs, too. However, these companies do not publish the lists of organizations for which they provide discounts, so when in doubt, check with your insurance company to see if your association qualifies. You can also contact your association or union to ask about affiliations with insurance carriers.
Like any other driver, teachers should compare quotes to find the best insurance company for their needs. Teachers should also look for unrelated discounts – like safe driver, multi policy, and customer loyalty discounts – to maximize their savings.
