Can I drive a car in the US on my UK insurance?

I'm going to the U.S. for a couple of weeks and a relative has said I can use their car while I'm there. How do I make sure I'm fully insured while using it? Can I drive on their insurance or will my own comprehensive insurance on my U.K. car cover me?

Your UK insurance will not cover you. You must ensure you have an American insurance policy in place for the vehicle. See if your relative's insurance policy will cover you.
