When a covered accident occurs while en route to pick up a passenger or on a trip, you’ll pay a $1,000 deductible toward insurance for physical damage to your vehicle. Lyft’s deductible for similar insurance can be as high as $2,500 while driving your own car.*
While Lyft requires drivers to have $5.50 available to cash out, there’s no minimum for Uber driver-partners who have signed up with Instant Pay to cash out.
