From a retired California Insurance Broker. The question is not clear as to the issue. When you have a US car insurance policy and you drive a car not owned by the policy holder you are automatically protected as to Liabality unless excluded. Most policy does not exclude such coverage. The phycial damage to the non owned car will not be coverd under your US policy. In commercial auto policy you may add non owned cars but not in personal auto policy. If you have a US auto policy you may decline when renting a car the liabily portion whic is the most expensive. Again check with your Broker to be certain that your policy does not exclude car rental, if not then only accept to buy physical damage only. Some credit card offers Insurance when the rental is charge to the card. A word of caution please call the credit card company and ask them if such insurance covers Liability and physical damage. Car insurance is divided into two major area 1. Liabilty. 2. Physical camage to the car which includes theft.

Non Owned car policy is also when you dont own a vehicle but you want a policy in force so you dont have a lapse in insurance coveage for when you go and buy a car. This policy is good for when a person is between cars fora period of time.

A single pay whole life insurance policy is a permanent life insurance policy that requires a one time payment/premium. The policy is guaranteed to stay in force until age 121 (in USA) and no additional premiums need to be paid.

It depends on the policy in the USA. In most European countries only named drivers can drive a car regardless of insurance policy - rental cars are the exception for obvious reasons.

It just depends on the type of policy, the policy limits and whether or not the policy has coverage for a dog attack. Most companies in the USA automatically exclude coverage for damage and injuries resulting from our choice of pets. In this case the home insurance policy would pay nothing at all. If the homeowners insurance policy does provide coverage for pet related injuries and damages then they would pay up to the policy liability limits chosen by the homeowner at the time they purchased the policy.
