“Car insurance typically follows the vehicle and not the driver. If you are giving someone permission to use your vehicle, they should be covered by your insurance.
If you are on a pay per mile plan with Liberty Mutual, you would still be charged for their mileage. As the ByMiles program is attached to your vehicle, any miles driven on it are counted.
Before letting someone borrow your vehicle, you should ensure that permissive use is covered by your insurance policy. You can reach out to Liberty Mutual directly to confirm what is covered.
If your vehicle is damaged while someone is borrowing it, you want to make sure it’s protected.”

Do you have to tell your car insurance about any modifications you make to your vehicle?
Do I need to tell my insurance if I modify my car? I want to install a new sound system in my car. Would my regular coverage protect it?
