Do I need a non owners policy if I borrow my friend's cars?
I borrow cars from different friends all the time. I don't have my own policy, but I think their policies may cover me. Should I get my own policy?

“In most cases, your friends’ car insurance policy will cover you. If you are a regular operator for one particular car, they really should add you as a driver to their policy.
Many people get peace of mind by buying non owners car insurance. This policy provides you with liability coverage for vehicles that you may rent or borrow.
In the case of borrowing a car, the policy your friend carries on the car would pay out first in the event of a claim, and then your policy would handle the overages.
You can get car insurance quotes online for non owners policies with many of the big-name carriers like Progressive, Allstate, and Nationwide.
