Can you purchase temporary car insurance in Alaska?

I'm going on a trip and planning on borrowing a friend's car. I don't have my own vehicle or insurance. To ensure that I'm covered (and to not rely on my friend's policy), can I purchase my own temporary insurance as well?

Temporary car insurance is a type of car insurance not offered by most major companies.
While it may seem like an easy solution, beware that the coverage may not offer much protection for the price.
A better solution in your situation might be to ask the friend to temporarily add you as a driver to their insurance.
Or, if you’re going to be driving more frequently, consider purchasing non-owners car insurance.
In some cases, you may also be covered by your friend’s insurance under a permissive-use basis. Just make sure your friend calls his/her insurance company to find out what permissive use covers.”
