Is non-owner car insurance cheaper than regular liability insurance?
I have a 17-year-old son who needs non-owner car insurance. How would such a plan compare to a policy with standard liability coverage?

A non-owner car insurance policy would provide your son with liability coverage so he can operate a non-owned car. Because there isn’t a specific car to insure, this type of plan will be cheaper.
Be aware that non owner insurance comes with more restrictions. If your son drives a specific car fairly regularly, he should probably get a standard liability policy instead.
