With the rideshare companies growing internationally, it isn’t farfetched for anyone looking for new car insurance to be asked by an agent will you be driving for UBER or LYFT? Most insurance companies do not cover rideshare drivers, and if they find out you are driving for one without them knowing, you will likely be dropped from their policy.
In California we are lucky to have 8 different options for rideshare insurance. Everyone’s background is different, and we recommend that you spend sometime calling each company, getting a quote, and asking any questions that you may have.
To better understand Rideshare insurance before contacting each company understand the three stages of driving:
Stage 1: Driving online waiting for a passenger.
Stage 2: Driving to pick up a passenger.
Stage 3: Driving to drop off a passenger.
