How do I insure a borrowed car?

I don’t have my own car, but often borrow friend's and family’s cars when I need to. How do I insure a borrowed car?

“While most car insurance policies cover permissive use, it never hurts to have extra protection.
To insure a borrowed car, you want to look into non-owner car insurance. Non-owner car insurance is for those who’d like insurance, but don’t own a car.
Non-owner insurance covers you in any car you drive. But keep in mind non-owner insurance is liability coverage, meaning it only covers other’s damages and injuries in an accident.
If you’re looking for the best coverage for yourself while borrowing cars, it’ll be best to shop around and get quotes. An easy way to do this is with Jerry. Jerry’s friendly agents can help you find the right non-owner policy through call or text.”
