OUT OF STATE COVERAGE
When the policy applies to the operation of a motor vehicle outside of your state, and the limits are higher in that state, your insurance will increase your limits to the extent of the limits required by the local law. As long as you possess those coverages in your own policy. For example, if you live in a state that requires PIP and the state you are driving in requires bodily injury, than your insurance will not provide bodily injury since you have not purchased this coverage.You must purchase bodily injury protection to have this coverage. If your PIP is $10,000/$20,000 and the state in which you are driving has a limit of $15,000/$30,000 than your limit will be increased to meet the higher limits required for that particular state.
