Should I take out a supplemental liability insurance policy if I don't have car insurance and I'm renting through Hertz?

I was planning on taking a three-week trip, but I'm worried about insurance coverage. Should I take the supplemental liability insurance from Hertz, or do I have other options?

Answer
“You basically have two options in this case.
The first option is to take Hertz’s supplemental liability coverage, as it covers you for up to $1 million in both property damage and bodily injury.
The second option is to get non owners car insurance with the same coverage limits as the Hertz policy. This can be a good option if you rent or borrow cars on a semi-regular basis.
You’ll have to do some math to find out which you’ll pay less for, but to help you decide, always check car insurance quotes online to get the best rates.”
