What are Alaska's car insurance requirements?

Alaska's minimum car insurance requirements include liability coverage limits of at least:

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

These are just the minimum liability coverage limits that Alaska drivers must have. If you really want to cover your assets, you should increase your liability limits, or obtain umbrella insurance, rather than purchase other car insurance coverages.

Consider comprehensive and collision coverage

Most lenders require comprehensive coverage and collision coverage if you're financing or leasing your vehicle. But even if you own your vehicle outright, these coverages may be worth adding to your policy. If your car is stolen or damaged in a collision or other covered event, these coverages will help pay to repair or replace your vehicle.

Interesting facts about driving in Alaska

  1. Keep your headlights on in the Land of the Midnight Sun. Motorists in Alaska are required to use headlights on certain state highways where signs are posted requiring the use of headlights to help avoid head-on collisions, and police advise drivers to use them no matter where or when they hit the road.

  2. There are 15,718 miles of public roads in Alaska, but only 31% of those roads are paved. Rough terrain means drivers need to drive defensively and be prepared for accidents or damage on the road. Always travel with a spare tire and emergency supplies and consider adding comprehensive coverage to your auto policy.

  3. Moose and vehicle collisions happen every year in Alaska. One of the best ways to avoid them is to slow down whenever you're driving in low-visibility conditions. Learn more about car accidents with animals.
