Car insurance if the vehicle you're driving isn't in your name

Answered by Car Insurance Expert Jessica on December 28, 2020

I pretty regularly drive a car that I didn't buy — all the paperwork and stuff is in someone else's name. How do I make sure I have insurance?

If you are looking to insure a vehicle that is not in your name, you can add the owner of the vehicle to your insurance policy as an additional interest. When you do this, you’re just demonstrating that there is another party with insurable interest. This should not raise your premiums at all.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
