MoneyGeek found out that car insurance rates in Alaska can vary by as much as $455 per year for the same driver across different insurers. Since it doesn’t take long to compare quotes, you should shop around and compare rates to find the cheapest policies.


Car Insurance Laws in Alaska

MoneyGeek’s resources will help you understand the car insurance laws and requirements in Alaska. State law requires every driver to have a policy with the following liability coverage:

  • $50,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $100,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $25,000 property damage liability per accident

However, the insurance coverage you need might be different from the state minimum policy because the law doesn’t require you to add comprehensive and collision coverage and only mandates low liability limits.
