Do I need continued coverage if I've sold my car?
I sold my car and tried to cancel my GEICO policy. The customer service agent told me that it was wise to keep "continued coverage" insurance. Do I really need this type of car insurance?

“Also known as non owners car insurance, a continued coverage policy provides liability insurance to drivers who rent or borrow cars from time to time, but don’t own a vehicle of their own.
If you don’t plan to buy another car, you probably won’t need it. However, if you occasionally want to rent a car or borrow a friend’s vehicle to run errands, it’s probably a good idea to have it.
Like with any other type of car insurance, you should shop for car insurance quotes online to find the best and most competitive rates for non owners coverage.”

What can I do if another driver totaled my car but only has $5,000 in property damage liability?
My car was parked in my driveway when a motorist left the road and hit it. The car is totaled. However, the driver's insurance company will only provide $5,000 for property damage. That's not nearly enough to cover my damages. What are my options?
