Today’s post comes from reader Tom, who contacted RSG to let us know his experience with Lyft’s insurance agent, Marsh Risk & Insurance Services. His story, outlined below, shows what can happen when you make a claim with Lyft’s insurance agent after an accident.
While Lyft and Uber do offer insurance coverage for drivers, in many cases it’s not sufficient during Period 1 (app on but no passenger in the car), which is why we recommend getting a rideshare endorsement to a regular auto insurance policy. It’s important to find an agent who understands rideshare drivers, which is why we’ve put together the Rideshare Insurance Marketplace.
Here you can find a list of insurance agents by state that are familiar with rideshare insurance and can help you find the best, most comprehensive auto insurance and rideshare coverage.
