What kind of car insurance coverage should I get when renting through Turo?
I don't drive often living in San Francisco, so I want to use Turo to get out of town and run errands. However, the company only offers minimum state liability, which isn't enough to make me feel secure. How can I get car insurance to cover me?

“You may want to consider getting non-owner car insurance from a carrier. It’s a type of liability insurance that can cover you if you drive but don’t own a car.
Your other option is to opt for one of Turo’s car insurance plans. Contrary to what you might have heard, they actually offer more than state-minimum liability insurance. They have three plans to choose from, but you should almost certainly take the Standard or Premier package, both of which offer $1 million of liability protection.”

Can I switch my car insurance to a new vehicle without a lapse in policy?
I recently traded in my vehicle to a dealership and got a new ride. But I totally forgot to switch the policy until days later. Can I switch my car insurance to the new vehicle or will it cause a lapse in coverage?
