Do most big car insurance companies operate nationwide?
I'm talking about the big dogs like GEICO, State Farm, etc. I ask because I'll be moving soon to the South and my small regional provider only operates in the Northeast.

Most of the big-name insurance companies do operate across the country, but there are some exceptions. To sell car insurance in any state, the company has to register with the state’s insurance commissioner.
If you want to be sure, talk to your insurance agent or broker. Or it may be easier to do a quick Google search using the name of an insurance company you’re interested in and your specific state.

Why does the car insurance company care if I want to raise my liability limits?
I was quoting different coverage limit options on my car insurance company’s website to see the price difference, and there was a pop-up asking why I was requesting this amount of coverage. Can’t I get whatever limit I want? Why do they care?

Should I buy collision and liability insurance for a rental car or borrow my parents' car for a road trip?
My partner and I are planning a three-month trip around the US. Neither of us owns a car. I got a good deal for a rental, but the insurance is more than the cost of the rental. Alternatively, my parents have offered to let us borrow their car with 150,000 miles. Which is the better option to cut costs?
