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.

How much does home owners insurance pay for when their dog knocks you down and you need extensive oral care?

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.

What is the best term insurance policy?

The best term insurance policy is the one that meets your needs and fits your budget. In 2003, the most popular type of term insurance policy purchased in the USA was Level Term Life Insurance (97%). Level term life insurance provides premiums and coverage that remain level for the entire term of your policy - usually up to 30 years. You may purchase level term life insurance for 10, 15, 20 or 30 years. You want to consider how long you need the coverage, how much you can afford to pay, what type of coverage you need, how much coverage you need, and then compare free quotes for term life insurance. The best term life insurance policy would include these factors: • A term policy that suits your needs appropriately • It offers you the best policy (which may include riders, waiver factors, etc.) at the most affordable price • It is from a life insurance company that is rated as having excellent financial strength and integrity, with a proven track record for paying up claims. The only way you can get the best policy is to shop around. Insurance rates vary considerably so the best savings are had when you compare quotes from a number of insurance companies.

If you have an insurance policy to drive any vehicle would you still be insured to drive a car that is not insured by the owner?

The answer is "it depends." I know of no insurance companies that issue policies "to drive any vehicle" ... automobile insurance, at least in the USA, is based on the car being driven. In that case, the insurance is actually on the automobile, not on the driver. Therefore, an uninsured car would not be insured regardless of the driver. There may be exceptions, depending on the underwriter and the particular policy involved.
