Getting car insurance can be quite complicated for foreign drivers
, especially with short-term
car rentals. Since you are renting the car from your host I assume that you will be living at their address. The easiest option would be to see if your host can add you to their current insurance policy as a named driver. Adding a driver may impact their insurance rates, but that might be something that you could work out with your host in your rental agreement.
Outside of this, you could get an insurance policy and cancel when you leave. If this is the case, you would need to add your host's information as an additional interest as they actually own the vehicle. Once you give the vehicle back, you would need to cancel the policy. Depending on the company, you might get a fee for canceling a policy so early on. Because of this, I greatly recommend option one: asking your host to add you to their policy temporarily.
