Rideshare Insurance for Uber & Lyft Drivers in Utah
If you’re using your Camry to deliver people to and from locations in exchange for money, your normal insurance policy will not provide you coverage while you’re working. To be sure you’re covered, you will need a specialized insurance policy geared towards ridesharing. This insurance policy provides coverage while driving for any Transportation Network Company, such as Uber or Lyft, while the App is turned on even if a rider has not been accepted.
This endorsement provides coverage for drivers who participate in ride sharing activities. A ride sharing activity can be described as someone who uses his or her own vehicle to drive passengers or property for a fee on behalf of companies like Uber or Lyft. This endorsement applies to the stated coverages during the period of time when the driver is available for hire until the driver accepts a request for transportation of persons or property for a fee.
Basically, these insurance policies will cover the driver on a personal auto policy whenever the Ride Sharing Companies’ insurance does not cover them. Typically, those policies will cover their drivers once they are on the app and accept a ride.
