Minimum Car Insurance Requirements in Alaska

All motor vehicles operated or parked on Alaska[1] roadways are required to be insured. Proof of insurance must be carried in your car at all times and must be available when:

  • Requested by law enforcement
  • Renewing vehicle registration
  • The vehicle is involved in a car accident

The minimum liability insurance requirements for private passenger vehicles in Alaska are:

  • $50,000 per person for bodily injury
  • $100,000 per accident for bodily injury

As a major part of your liability insurance, bodily injury coverage covers medical bills for people other than the policyholder who are injured during an accident. Alaska is an at-fault state, meaning the driver who is responsible for the collision is also responsible for paying for any resulting expenses, either through their car insurance provider or out of pocket.

  • $25,000 per accident for property damage

If it’s determined that an insured driver is at fault for an accident, this coverage pays for repairs to the property of the other involved parties. Additionally, property damage coverage can cover legal costs if the insured driver is involved in a lawsuit following the accident.

Anchorage Car Insurance Rates by Driver Age

As the average car insurance rates in Anchorage demonstrate, younger drivers cost more to insure—even in the Last Frontier! Premiums for Anchorage teen drivers average out to $362, over four times as much as the average cost for drivers in their 50s. Since older drivers also tend to have more accidents than drivers in their prime, Anchorage drivers in their 60s and 70s pay higher premiums on average than younger motorists, with average rates of $103 and $153, respectively.

Anchorage Car Insurance Rates by Driving and Accident History

In Anchorage, smart drivers are safe drivers. And safe drivers get all the best rewards from insurance companies, including the “good driver” and “accident-free” discounts. If so, why do people with a failure-to-stop ticket pay less than those with no violations? Often, drivers with violations cut their policies to make them affordable and opt for liability only, skipping costlier comprehensive and collision coverage. An at-fault accident kicks up the price by over $60 per month. But drivers are not stuck paying more forever; three years of careful driving, and tickets and accidents stop affecting insurance rates.

Anchorage Car Insurance Rates by Credit Tier

Alaskans are a tad confused on just how credit changes their ability to drive. But the state’s insurance companies tell a different story, and the law says it’s perfectly okay for them to use credit as a rating factor for drivers. Generally, those with worse credit pay more for car insurance. Those with poor and average credit pay about the same. The biggest decrease goes from moving from average to excellent credit, translating to saving over $25 per month, or $300 per year.
