I am planning to travel to the US for 2 months and was hoping to buy a car in California and drive it to New York. I have been trying to find out if will be possible to get insurance since I am not a resident of the US and it is looking increasingly difficult. I contacted Progressive Insurance company in the US and they said that I would have to have an address plus they would be unable to write a policy as the laws change between states and I would be travelling between states. Is there anything I can do to get around this?

    YOU WOULD HAVE TO HAVE YOUR INS. CO IN THE U K TO INSURE THE CAR . WHEN I RENTED A CAR FOR A MONTH IN ITALY MY INS. CO. HERE IN N.J. INSURED THE CAR RENTAL .
