A non-owner (non-owner) policy only covers a person for liability which means it provides you with coverage if you cause injury or property damage to others in a car accident while you are operating a vehicle you do not own.

- Frequently rent cars.
- Frequently borrow cars.
Remember, non-owner liability only covers damages and injuries you cause to others. This coverage does not extend to damages or injuries you might suffer in a car accident. Depending on the state you are in, it also may not cover a vehicle owned, nor frequently used by, the convicted driver.
