Does my liability insurance cover me when I'm driving overseas?

I travel quite a bit during the year and I rent cars to get around. Does my liability insurance cover me when I drive overseas?

“Most insurance companies will cover you in all states, U.S. territories, and sometimes Canada.
If you’re visiting countries outside of these areas, you’ll need to take the liability coverage offered by the rental company.
Your credit card may have a collision damage waiver for international rentals, but make sure. If not, you might also want to take the rental car company’s collision insurance.”
