Finding economical car insurance for a Jeep Grand Cherokee in Alaska is pretty easy to do, but it depends on a large number of rating criteria such as age of the vehicle, your profession, and your choice of deductibles. Alaska drivers will pay on average $1,130 each year for Grand Cherokee insurance, but that figure is an approximation based upon a 30-year-old single female driver with full comprehensive and collision coverage and $100 deductibles.
The issue with using an average estimated rate is the likelihood you may not be 30 years old (or even female), possibly married instead of single, or maybe you rent instead of own your home. Having what appears to be a very minor change in the rating criteria used to formulate rates can make a big difference in the cost of insurance for a Jeep Grand Cherokee.
This demonstrates why the way we recommend to find cheap insurance prices for your Jeep is to just take the time to compare rates yourself. In just a few minutes you will be able to compare rates from the best companies available.

Should you buy full coverage?
Paying a lower price for car insurance is important to the majority of drivers, and a good way to reduce the cost of insurance for a Jeep Grand Cherokee is to only buy liability coverage. The illustration below shows the comparison of car insurance costs when comparing full coverage to liability only. The price estimates are based on no driving violations, no at-fault accidents, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no policy discounts are applied.
As an average for all age groups, full coverage costs an additional $1,357 per year over and above liability coverage. That is a large expense and it proposes the question if you should buy full coverage at all. There is no written rule of when to phase out comp and collision coverage, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the yearly cost of full coverage is 10% or more of the settlement you would receive from your company, then you may want to consider only buying liability coverage.
There are some circumstances where only buying liability is not advised. If you haven’t satisfied your loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage to protect the lienholder’s interest in the vehicle. Also, if you can’t afford to buy a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should keep full coverage on your policy.
