Average Car Insurance Costs in Alaska by Credit Score

Car insurance companies utilize credit history as a way of determining the reliability of a prospective customer. Historical data demonstrate drivers with solid credit are more dependable auto insurance customers: they're less likely to file claims insurance companies have to reimburse.

In Alaska, a driver boasting excellent credit saves $952.84 each year on car insurance, versus a driver with a less-favorable credit score. Read more about how credit history affects auto insurance expenditures:
