Want the cheapest insurance rates for your Lincoln Town Car? Trying to find the cheapest insurance for a new or used Lincoln Town Car can be difficult, but you can learn the following methods to make it easier.
There are more efficient ways to buy insurance and you need to know the best way to price shop coverage on a Lincoln and locate the lowest price from both online companies and local agents.
Companies that sell car insurance don’t always publicize their entire list of discounts in a way that’s easy to find, so the following is a list of both well-publicized as well as some of the hidden car insurance savings.
It’s important to note that most discounts do not apply to the entire policy premium. Some only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as comprehensive or collision. Despite the appearance that you would end up receiving a 100% discount, companies wouldn’t make money that way.
Popular car insurance companies and their offered discounts are detailed below.
If you need lower rates, check with all companies you are considering which credits you are entitled to. Discounts may not be available in your area. For a list of insurers that provide some of the discounts listed above, follow this link.
Comparing insurance rates can be challenging if you aren’t aware of the fastest way to get free quotes. You could waste a few hours talking to local insurance agents in your area, or you can stay home and use online quoting to achieve your goal.
Most major companies enroll in a system that enables customers to submit their information once, and every company returns a competitive quote. This prevents consumers from doing repetitive form submissions for each company you want a rate for. To access this free quoting program, click here to open in new window.
The one disadvantage to getting quotes like this is you are unable to specify the insurers you want to price. So if you prefer to pick specific insurance companies to request quotes from, we have a page of companies who write insurance in your area. Click here for list of insurance companies.
It’s your choice how you get your quotes, but make sure you are using the exact same quote information on every quote. If you have different deductibles it’s not possible to make an equal comparison.

Knowing the specifics of your policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.
Comprehensive auto coverage – Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from getting keyed, rock chips in glass and vandalism. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Medical payments and PIP coverage – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for short-term medical expenses for things like nursing services, surgery, hospital visits and rehabilitation expenses. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Liability coverage – Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to other’s property or people in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have policy limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as bail bonds, court costs, structural damage and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
Collision – Collision coverage covers damage to your Town Car from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for claims like crashing into a ditch, colliding with another moving vehicle and hitting a mailbox. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Lincoln Town Car.
Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Most of the time these coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.
Affordable 1995 Lincoln Town Car insurance is definitely available online and also from your neighborhood agents, and you should be comparing both to get a complete price analysis. Some companies may not provide internet price quotes and many times these smaller providers prefer to sell through independent insurance agencies.
Consumers change insurance companies for a number of reasons such as extreme rates for teen drivers, delays in responding to claim requests, delays in paying claims or even poor customer service. Regardless of your reason, switching companies is pretty easy and you might even save some money in the process.
When searching for cheap insurance quotes, make sure you don’t buy less coverage just to save a little money. In many cases, an insured dropped full coverage and learned later that it was a big mistake. The ultimate goal is to buy the best coverage you can find at the best price while not skimping on critical coverages.
