Anchorage, AK Driving Facts


Minimum Car Insurance Requirements in AK

The state of Alaska requires all motor vehicle operators to have proof of insurance available in the car at all times. The minimum bodily injury liability insurance requirements in Alaska are:

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

Bodily injury coverage protects you by paying for the injuries of anyone you harm in an accident. The minimum coverage limits that Alaska state law requires are $50,000 for the injury or death of a single person involved in a car accident and $100,000 for the injury or death of multiple persons. Insurance providers list this coverage at 50/100, stating the limitations of each minimum. In an accident, liability coverage protects you up to the policy limit. Damages above the policy limit of $100,000 are your responsibility.

The minimum property damage liability insurance requirements in Alaska are:

  • $25,000 property damage liability per accident

Property damage liability coverage pays for any property that you damage in an accident. The state of Alaska requires $25,000 for the minimum. You’ll see the collective state minimum listed at 100/50/25. The 25 refers to the property damage liability. Once again, any damages above the $25,000 are your responsibility.

Anchorage Car Insurance Rates by Driver Age

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.
