Personal Injury Protection
The state of Alaska is not a “no-fault” state and thus the state does not require drivers to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP), comprehensive, collision, or uninsured motorist protection.
Alaska is also known for its rugged terrain and your average driver normally has a vehicle which is able to handle such terrain. Since 4 x 4 trucks and similar vehicles cost more to insure, along with the climate insurance rates are going to be higher than average.
Like any other state, Alaska requires its drivers to carry a minimum amount of liability protection and even though the state’s insurance rates are higher than average it is a good idea to think about carrying uninsured motorist protection in the event you are in accident with another driver that is not carrying sufficient coverage.
Also, comprehensive coverage would be another option since moose, deer, and other animals are commonly hit by drivers in the state of Alaska.
After comparing quotes be sure to contact an insurance broker to be sure you have the correct amount of coverage for your vehicle.
