Recent QuestionsAre some insurance providers better suited to my needs than others to get the best rate?
Because most coverage options can be matched across insurance companies, I think what you are really looking for is the best customer service/claims support for the best cost. Right off the bat, I know Geico probably wouldn't be an option for you with a leased vehicle.

While they are some company-specific deductibles, the standard ones are $500 and $1000. So it's unlikely you won't be able to get the desired amount for your collision or comprehensive deductible.
