What type of car insurance do I need in California if I no longer drive, but I have a friend take me to the doctor's office?
My eyesight has continued to decline, and while I have a driver's license, I no longer drive. However, I want to keep my car to get to appointments and I let my friend drive. What type of policy do I need if I live in California?

Liability CoverageCar InsuranceCalifornia
“For your needs, you probably only need liability coverage. However, you might not want to get the bare-minimum coverage in California, as this probably won’t provide enough protection in most accidents where you (or your friend) is at fault.
But for the sake of saving money while still having adequate coverage, you may want to take out a liability policy with limits of 100/300/100 or 50/100/50. Just make sure to shop for car insurance quotes online to get the most value for your money.”

Why are other car insurance carriers' rates so expensive?
I've been insured with Progressive for the past three years. Every time I shop around with other carriers, the rates are 25% higher than what I'm currently paying. I don't have any tickets or accidents. I can't figure out why anyone would have insurance with another carrier if all their rates are so expensive.

Do I have to take the auto insurance that the rental car companies offer?
I plan on renting a car for about a month during the summer. I don't have my own insurance policy, but I am a really safe driver. I don't want to pay for the rental car insurance. Do I have to buy it?

"Is it a good idea to finance my first car at age 18? "
"I just turned 18 and have been driving a beater for two years. It broke down for the fourth time and I am tired of fixing it. Should I finance a better car? If it matters, I make about $200 per week, I can put $2,000 down, and I have a minimal credit history. "
