Should I buy supplemental liability insurance on a rental car for my trip to Tennessee?
I'm visiting Tennessee for a few days and I want to rent a car. My credit card offers a collision damage waiver, so I'm declining that insurance. But do I still need to get supplemental liability insurance?

“The answer lies in whether you have your own liability insurance. If you don’t, you’ll definitely want to get the supplemental liability insurance for your trip to Tennessee.
Just make sure to ask how much coverage the rental car company’s liability insurance offers. If possible, get as much coverage as you can, as they may just offer the state-minimum insurance if you don’t ask.”

Can my car insurance company cancel my coverage for not adding my husband to the policy?
I got married and GEICO wants to cancel my insurance because I refuse to add my husband to the policy. He has his own policy with a different company. I do not want to add him because he had a DWI last fall. Can they cancel my policy for this?
