What is hired and non-owned auto insurance (HNOA)?
Hired and non-owned auto insurance
This policy provides liability coverage for accidents involving personal, leased, or rented vehicles used for business purposes.
When do small businesses need hired and non-owned auto insurance?
If your small business regularly uses vehicles that it doesn't own, you may benefit from hired and non-owned auto insurance. For example, employees might run business errands in their personal vehicles or rent a car for a business trip.
This policy provides liability protection, which means it will pay for your legal costs if someone sues over an accident. However, it will not pay for vehicle repairs.
Many businesses add hired and non-owned auto insurance to their general liability insurance. You can also purchase this policy separately, but sometimes buying policies together can lower your insurance rates.
