Driver-partners using the Uber App can now receive a daily payment benefit

March 1, 2019 / Nigeria

We’re excited to announce a further commitment to driver-partner protection in Nigeria, by updating our Partner Injury Protection provided by AXA Mansard, for added peace of mind when using Uber.  

Partner Injury protection applies to all driver-partners when On-Trip – and at no additional cost to you. All driver-partners will benefit from this updated cover from the moment they accept a trip, while driving to pick up a rider, and until the trip ends.

In the unfortunate event of an accident or a crime-related incident resulting in an injury during a trip, driver-partners will have access to the following benefits:

  • Medical cover: If an accident happens On-Trip, this cover reimburses driver-partners and riders for necessary medical treatment costs up to NGN 600,000. In addition, this cover reimburses ambulance service costs up to NGN 20,000
  • Death and Funeral payment: In the unfortunate event that a driver-partner or rider dies as a result of an accident On-Trip, their dependents or heirs will benefit from a lump sum payment of NGN 2,000,000 and NGN 100,000 to cover burial expenses will be reimbursed
  • Permanent Disability: In the unfortunate event that a user suffers a permanent disability as a result of an accident On-Trip, they will benefit from a lump sum payment of up to NGN 2,000,000  (the amount depends on the severity of the disability)
  • Daily Payment Benefit (injury): If a driver-partner is hospitalized for more than 24 hours as a result of an accident that happened On-Trip and are thereafter unable to drive because of those injuries, they will receive a daily payment of NGN 1,000 for up to 30 days whilst they are medically certified by a doctor as unfit to work.

Injury Protection in Nigeria has been tailored specifically for those on the road, and builds on Uber’s existing security structure while ensuring a safer ride during every journey booked through the Uber app. This is just part of our ongoing efforts to support driver-partners and riders on the road, and we will continue to do our best to provide them with more peace of mind going forward.
