Do any US auto insurance companies offer auto insurance coverage in Canada?

Many insurance policies may cover you in Canada — if it is for short term trips. I would check with your current carrier, but it is likely you'll need to select a Canadian insurance provider if you'll be living there for two years.

If I'm Canadian, can I purchase a 4-month temporary car insurance policy in California?

Thank you for the question. It's likely that you'll be able to get coverage in California with a foreign license.

Can insurance be temporarily suspended without it being canceled?

I do not know any insurer that offers a temporary suspension of insurance coverage. You could lower all coverages to the state minimum to make it cheaper, but if it is going to be more than a few months you may want to consider suspending the tags and discontinuing insurance. If you discontinue insurance, it will cost more when you get coverage again.

Eligibility

How do I get temporary insurance for an RV if I have a foreign license?

As a foreign driver, you can get insurance pretty easily in most cases. However, it makes it a little bit trickier because it's RV insurance that you need.

Eligibility

Can you insure a right-hand import vehicle for four weeks?

Not all car insurance companies in the US will be willing to cover an imported right-hand vehicle, so be prepared to shop around. In addition, temporary car insurance doesn't really exist.

A friend is purchasing a car for me tomorrow, I'm wondering if there is a temporary policy I can get through the dealership until I can shop for my own policy?

Temporary car insurance doesn't really exist. You will likely have to get a Texas auto insurance plan before they let you leave with the vehicle.

Is there a temporary insurance policy while I'm test driving a used car to protect me before I actually buy it?

There really isn't a global policy that can be used for what you are needing, nor does "temporary insurance" exist. The good news is most insurance plans are paid month-to-month and have very minimal penalties for canceling — if any penalty at all.

RV Insurance

Where can I get short term insurance for an RV?

Whether you're insuring your car or RV, temporary insurance is not really an option — most policies are for 6-12 months. You can typically cancel at any time but be aware of any fees for canceling early.

General Insurance

Is there any type of temporary insurance that would cover me driving my mom's car for a week?

Insurance companies don't offer temporary car insurance since policy lengths are typically six months to a year. If you will only be driving the vehicle for one week out of the year and you do not live with your mother, her policy should cover you to drive under permissive use.

Eligibility

Is there a temporary non-owners car insurance for foreign drivers?

As an international student, you do have some options. The Zebra can offer Non-Owner's policies for drivers with a foreign license. We can't quote that online because a car is required, but you can give us a call at 888-807-3823.

Eligibility

I need a 5-day car insurance

If you've already found a company that will insure your vehicle considering it is not operable (which can be tricky), I would just recommend contacting that insurance company and see if you can start the policy early. There are no companies that will insure your vehicle for 5 days, unfortunately.
