Searching for lower insurance rates? Consumers have a choice when looking for affordable Lincoln Navigator insurance. You can either spend your time calling around to compare prices or use the internet to find the lowest rates. There is a better way to shop for insurance so you’re going to learn the proper way to compare rates for your Lincoln and find the lowest possible price from local insurance agents and online providers.
It’s a good habit to compare premium rates quite often since insurance prices are rarely the same from one policy term to another. Even if you got the best price for Navigator insurance at your last renewal you may be paying too much now. Forget anything you know (or think you know) about insurance because you’re about to find out the best methods to eliminate unnecessary coverages and save money.
There are a variety of methods to shop for auto insurance, but there is one way that is more efficient than others. You could waste a few hours driving to insurance companies in your area, or you can utilize online quotes to get rate comparisons in just a few minutes.
Many companies participate in a marketplace where prospective buyers complete one form, and every company then returns a price quote for coverage. This system prevents you from having to do quotation requests to each company. To compare rates using this form now click here (opens in new window).
One minor caviat to using this type of system is you can’t choose which companies to get quotes from. So if you prefer to pick individual companies to request quotes from, we have a listing of companies who write auto insurance in your area. Click here to view list.
You can choose any of those ways to find more affodable coverage, but compare the exact same information with every price quote. If you are comparing different values for each quote you will not be able to make a fair comparison for your Lincoln Navigator.
Insurance coverage can be pricey, but there could be significant discounts that can dramatically reduce your bill. Most are applied at the time you complete a quote, but a few must be manually applied in order for you to get them.
A little note about advertised discounts, some of the credits will not apply to the overall cost of the policy. The majority will only reduce individual premiums such as comprehensive or collision. Despite the fact that it seems like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, you won’t be that lucky. Any qualifying discounts will reduce your overall premium however.

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but a few of them apply, then you may want to think about talking to an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form. It is quick, free and can help protect your family.
Learning about specific coverages of your insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Insurance terms can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Auto liability – This provides protection from damage or injury you incur to a person or their property by causing an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see limits of 50/100/50 which means a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and property damage coverage for $50,000.
Liability coverage protects against claims like emergency aid, medical expenses and funeral expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.
Collision coverages – This will pay to fix damage to your Navigator resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against claims like backing into a parked car, crashing into a ditch, crashing into a building and rolling your car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Uninsured and underinsured coverage – This gives you protection from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Comprehensive coverages – Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, fire damage and vandalism. The maximum amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
Coverage for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for short-term medical expenses such as ambulance fees, nursing services, EMT expenses, dental work and X-ray expenses. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
