Everybody knows that GEICO can save you 15 percent or more on your car insurance.
But did you know that GEICO has served the unique needs of military personnel and their families for over 75 years?
Since opening its doors in 1936, GEICO -- that's short for Government Employment Insurance Company -- has supported and provided auto insurance to the Military and Federal segments.
That tradition continues today thanks to the GEICO Military Center. Staffed with current and former military family members, the department proudly gives back to Active duty, guard, reserve, and retired military personnel, offering discounts of up to 15 percent on total insurance premiums.
But the auto assistance doesn't stop there. GEICO understands that military life comes with a unique set of rewards and challenges; therefore, they're committed to offering special benefits to all military members, such as:
Storage Protection Plan: If your military duties require you to store your vehicle for 30 days or more, GEICO can suspend or reduce your insurance coverage and help you save money.
Emergency Deployment Discount: GEICO offers Emergency Deployment Discounts to Military members when they deploy into imminent danger pay areas.
Overseas Insurance: GEICO's 12-month overseas auto policies offer competitive rates and come with all of the documents you will need to register your vehicle. They even offer marine insurance on vehicle shipments over $20,000.
Beyond auto insurance, GEICO can help you with products covering all your insurance needs, from Homeowners to Renters to Cycle insurance.
GEICO is also saying thanks to all military personnel by sponsoring NBC 7's 5th Annual Salute to Service Festival. Taking place this Veterans Day -- Wednesday, November 11 -- aboard the flight deck of the USS Midway Museum, the annual tribute will feature live music from local bands, delicious free food, exciting giveaways, Kidzone activities and vintage war plane flybys. Military members and their families will receive free admission with ID.
