Non-Owner Liability Insurance

You recognize that even behind the wheel of your friend's car or a truck rental, you should have liability coverage in case you are the cause of an accident. What exactly does Non Owner Liability Insurance Cover?

Non Owner Liability Insurance covers:

  • Bodily Injury: Covers the medical costs of the other driver and passengers involved in an accident caused by your negligence.
  • Property Damage: Covers the repair costs of the other car or cars involved in an accident caused by your negligence.

Because it's liability insurance, it only covers damage to others and their property, not to yourself or the vehicle you are in. This means if your mistake causes a car accident, your non-owner liability coverage will pay the other driver's medical and vehicle repair costs (up to the policy's limits, of course). It does not, however, repair the damages for the rented or borrowed vehicle you're driving.

Vehicles Covered Under Non-Owner Liability

Non-owner liability insurance covers all rental cars and borrowed vehicles driven by you and only you. With this protection, you do not need to buy rental car insurance when renting a car -- you are covered.

Non owner liability does NOT protect:

  •     Any vehicle registered under your name.
  •     Any vehicle titled to you.
  •     Work-related vehicles.
  •     Non-private passenger type vehicles.
  •     Any vehicle owned by a resident of your household; say, for example, you daughter's car.
  •     Any vehicle that's loaned to you on a regular basis.

If you buy a vehicle while carrying non-owner liability coverage, you will need to upgrade your insurance to meet your state's mandated liability insurance requirements.

Quotes From Members

  • "Also, I'm really pleased that I found Better World; it really suits the values of my family and, by the way, my congregation and my grad students. I don't know how many in either group belong to any auto club or travel club, but they surely would be ashamed not to join up with BW if they ever join any. :)"
  • "Thanks again for your prompt and courteous and helpful support."
  • "This claim was the only time so far that we've needed to use our BWC coverage, but it was exactly what we needed in that situation, so we'll definitely keep our memberships active in case we run into issues on future rides!"
  • "You serve your market with intelligence and humor. I didn't feel like I was a family member when I had AAA, but I feel like an important part of a socially-conscious family with you. Keep the newsletters coming."
  • "Thanks very much! I switched to BWC because I believe you share my values and concern for sustainability. The hybrid discount is a great added bonus. It's great to see businesses thrive on a positive progressive message."
  • "My alternator gave out suddenly one night. I was stranded on a frontage road near the freeway, in the dark, in the rain, a couple hundred miles from home late on a weekend night. When I called BWC, your representative asked if I was in a safe place, dispatched a tow truck, and asked if I needed help finding a hotel for the night. Needless to say, I was impressed. It's good to know folks like you have my back!"
  • "Your newsletter is full of stimulating information--not only revealing the truth about companies/regulations that are unfair, unconscious, or downright despicable, but also highlighting positive efforts and developments for a better world. Really appreciate it. And also enjoy your sense of humor."
