Insurance

Alberta has approved an insurance policy from Intact Insurance designed specifically for rideshare drivers. You can see our policy here. All drivers are also required to maintain a personal insurance policy. We recommend you speak with your provider to discuss ride sharing. For a ride-share friendly insurance quote, please visit www.uber.aon.ca.

Your name must be visible on the insurance pink slip. If you’re the secondary driver, you must show proof of the policy document with your name on it. Learn more about insurance
