Even if you don’t own a car, you can still purchase auto insurance and this coverage is known as non-owner auto insurance. However you might ask yourself why would I consider buying this type of auto insurance since I don’t have a car?
If an accident occurs while you are driving a rented vehicle, you will be the one responsible to pay for the damages and losses brought by the accident. Your car insurance policy will cover the cost of the damages owing over the policy limits. Purchasing a non-owner auto insurance will protect your assets. If you are the driver when the accident happens, the owner of the rented car may probably file legal action against you to recover some money paid out caused by the accident.
