We want you to have peace of mind even when the unexpected happens, which is why Uber partners with four leading auto insurance companies to help protect every rideshare trip on the Uber app throughout the United States. By teaming up with Allstate, Farmers, Liberty Mutual, and Progressive, we are continuing our commitment to helping ensure drivers and riders have a sense of security.
Based on your state, effective March 1, 2020, the auto insurance that Uber maintains on behalf of drivers operating on the Uber app may have changed to a different insurance carrier. Please refer to the map below to see which carrier insures drivers operating on the Uber app in your state if you drive under the Transportation Network Company model using your personal vehicle.
Every driver is insured while operating on the Uber app; from the moment a driver taps “Go” to wait for a trip request, while driving to pick up a rider, and until the trip ends. Riders are also protected during an Uber trip. Below is a detailed outline of that auto insurance coverage:
Once a driver has accepted a trip on the Uber app, Uber maintains the following auto insurance on their behalf in case of a covered accident:
- Third-party liability coverage
This Insures bodily injuries or damages a driver has caused to riders, people in other vehicles, pedestrians, or property. Coverage limits vary by state but are at least $1,000,000.
- Uninsured or underinsured motorist bodily injury coverage
This insures driver and riders if an accident occurs on a passenger trip and another driver is at fault and doesn’t have sufficient insurance. Additionally, this insures hit and runs where the at-fault driver cannot be identified. Coverage limits vary by state but are at least $250,000 once a passenger is present.
- Contingent comprehensive and collision coverage
As long as a driver maintains comprehensive and collision coverage on his/her personal auto insurance, the insurance that Uber maintains will kick in and provide physical damage coverage for the driver’s car up to its actual cash value, regardless of who is at fault. There is a $1,000 deductible that the driver must pay first before this coverage applies.
A low deductible
When a covered accident occurs causing damage to your vehicle, you are responsible for a $1,000 comprehensive/collision deductible. This is typically lower than Lyft’s comprehensive and collision deductible, which can be as high as $2,500 while driving your own car.*
This means that you would pay less out of pocket if your car is damaged while driving with us.
