Alexandria, Virginia, conveniently located a mere 6 miles away from both Arlington, Virginia and Washington, DC, is a stunning city rich with a unique blend of history and modern culture. Originally founded in 1749 as Scottish settlers attempted to take advantage of a growing tobacco industry, the city of Alexandria quickly grew into one of the most prominent port towns in Colonial history. Throughout the Revolutionary and Civil wars, the city acted as one of the largest slave markets in the country and grew to become the site of dozens of significant historic events. George Washington himself regularly visited Alexandria to attend church and keep a second home despite his permanent Mount Vernon residence being located just a few miles away.
The city itself has a relatively small population of around 144,000 people compared to other major cities in the country but it is often frequented by tourists and individuals passing through on their way to Washington and other area destinations. Crime levels in Alexandria are, on average, similar to those experienced throughout the rest of Virginia - hovering at around .23% for violent crime and 2.4% for property related crimes. Despite the city's size and close proximity to other major cities, the average cost of Alexandria car insurance remains relatively low when compared to the national average of approximately $1,800 per year. As of 2009, most drivers in Alexandria were paying, on average, around $1,500 depending on their driving records.
Virginia insurance law will play a huge role in the type of Alexandria auto insurance quotes you receive. The minimum amount of liability coverage you can purchase in Virginia is $25,000 bodily injury liability per person with a maximum of $50,000 per accident (to pay for medical bills the other party might sustain if you cause an accident) and $20,000 for property damage liability (to pay for damage you cause to a car or property owned by another). Virginia also requires drivers to carry uninsured motorist coverage at a limit of $25,000 per person or $50,000 per accident. Uninsured motorist coverage will protect you if you are in an accident with a driver who has no coverage or who has a limit that is not sufficient enough to pay for your medical bills. You must also purchase uninsured motorist property damage coverage at a $20,000 limit to pay for damage to your own vehicle if the other party can't pay.
