Partner Injury Protection
Accident insurance from UAP-Old Mutual Insurance in Uganda
Sometimes accidents happen. So it’s good to know that from 21st December 2018 in Kampala, you are protected against medical treatment costs and lost earning opportunities.
From the launch date
Partner Injury Protection starts on 21st December 2018.
Protected while On-Trip
You are protected from the moment you accept a trip request, through to when the trip ends.
Who is protected?
All Uber driver partners are protected, subject to conditions and limits.
What this means for you
Get help with medical treatment costs if you’re injured in an accident while on an Uber trip. If your injuries stop you from driving, you can also get help with lost earning opportunities.
Protection for medical treatment costs and lost earning opportunities
If you’re an Uber driver partner in Uganda, Partner Injury Protection can help you with emergency medical treatment expenses and other costs.
You pay nothing
As part of our global commitment to safety we have partnered with UAP-Old Mutual Insurance to provide as many driver partners as possible with protection under this program. That’s why Uber is paying for this program.
Your customers are protected too
While on an Uber trip in Uganda, your passengers are also automatically protected by the injury protection insurance.
