What drives up car insurance rates in Anchorage?

Where you live in Anchorage affects your car insurance rates. Besides your driving history and credit score, where you live is one of the biggest contributing factors to the car insurance rates you'll pay. The reason? Crime, theft and uninsured motorists vary by zip code. So if you find yourself in a neighborhood that doesn’t play well with others, car insurance companies may consider you a high risk to insure, meaning: your rates could be higher than those of a pal who lives just around the block. And, unfortunately Anchorage is no exception to the rule. From zip code 99506 to 99504, premiums rise by 5 percent—that’s $58.

Expensive Anchorage Zip Codes: 99529, 99508, 99518, 99517, 99504

Cheap Anchorage Zip Codes: 99506, 99505, 99577, 99540, 99587
