Can I get car insurance for a few days?

What are my options for short-term insurance? I'm going on vacation and planning on renting a car with friends. I don't normally have car insurance.

“When renting a car without your own car insurance, purchasing temporary car insurance is an option. You should be aware, though, that it’s not sold by most major providers.
You may also consider rental car insurance, or, if you’re going to be driving more frequently in the future, non-owners car insurance.
All of these are viable options for temporary driving or if you don’t own a car.”
