Is a non-owner policy a better option than paying for the insurance at a rental car agency?
I don't own a car, but I do rent cars regularly. I get a good deal on the car itself, but the insurance cost really adds up! Would a non-owner policy save me money?

“Great question! It really depends on how often you rent and how much a non owners car insurance policy would cost you. You may need to do a little research and get some car insurance quotes online.
The typical non-owner policy only provides coverage for bodily injury liability and property damage liability. To have comprehensive insurance and collision insurance would cost extra, if they are available.
Like a standard car insurance policy, the cost of the non owners car insurance will depend on many things like your driving history and amount of coverage. If you rent vehicles often enough, this could be the best option for you. “
