How much is insurance to drive any car?

I don't own a vehicle, but I still want to be protected if I'm ever behind the wheel, since I have a license and I enjoy road trips. How much does insurance that would allow me to drive any car cost?

Great question! You are usually covered by the vehicle owner’s insurance when driving someone else’s car—but if you rent cars or drive frequently, you can also look into non-owner insurance.
Whether you’re handling an emergency or taking shifts on a road trip, there are many times in your life when you may need to drive someone else’s car. Thankfully, the driver’s car insurance will most likely cover you in an emergency or road trip. Have the driver check with their insurance provider if you want to confirm.
There are also non-owner policies if you’d like even more protection, or if you drive frequently. These policies are usually less expensive than typical insurance, and usually cover personal injury and liability.
If you want to get the best deal on the non-owner policy that you need, check out the Jerry app to make the process easy! We’ll get you customized quotes from top providers, so all you need to do is choose the plan that works best for you.
