    What you don’t know about rideshare insurance could hurt you!

    Why Delivery, Uber and Lyft Drivers Need Rideshare Insurance

    Uber and Lyft only cover rideshare drivers during Periods 2 and 3. Period 2 starts once you accept a ride request and are en route to your passenger, and Period 3 starts once your passenger gets into your car.

    However, when you’re online and waiting for a request during Period 1, you have no collision coverage from Uber or Lyft and much lower liability limits.

    This means as a rideshare driver, you’re most at risk during Period 1 since you won’t get any collision coverage from rideshare companies and your personal insurer likely won’t cover you during this time either.

    How Rideshare Insurance Works for Uber & Lyft Drivers

    Getting a rideshare insurance quote and rideshare insurance solves this gap by covering drivers during Period 1, and additionally, they won’t drop you for being a rideshare driver.  Some policies will even cover you during Periods 2 and 3 so you won’t be subject to Uber’s $1,000 collision deductible and Lyft’s $2,500 collision deductible.

    Rideshare insurance really should be part of Uber driver requirements and Lyft driver requirements. When you drive for Via, you’ll need proper commercial auto insurance.

    Finally, you will also want insurance even if you only plan on driving for food delivery services (not Uber or Lyft). You can find a full list of insurance companies offering delivery insurance here.

    You may be able to deduct your rideshare insurance from your tax bill.  Use the Stride Tax App to maximize your deductions to keep more of your income.

    What is Uber and Lyft Insurance?: Rideshare Insurance Explained

    I’ve covered this issue extensively, so if you want to brush up on the current state of insurance for rideshare, here are some of the best rideshare insurance resources for you to review:

    What’s the difference between rideshare and commercial insurance?

    Insurance Options for Delivery App Drivers

    With the rising popularity of on-demand food and package delivery services, it’s no surprise that there’s a huge demand for new drivers. Companies like Uber Eats, Postmates, DoorDash, Amazon Flex and Instacart are constantly looking for new workers to come on board and deliver for them.

    But which one of these food delivery companies offers insurance for drivers? You can find the full list of delivery insurance options, but we’ve also broken it down for you below:

    • Amazon Flex – offers an Amazon Flex Auto Policy that applies while couriers are delivering, picking up, and returning undelivered packages back to a designated location
    • DoorDash – provides a $1 million contingent liability policy “when you are in possession of goods to be delivered,” meaning only from restaurant to delivery, not driving TO a restaurant
    • Postmates – Postmates also provides $1 million in excess liability coverage for couriers in vehicles. This coverage would only kick in after you’ve exhausted your personal policy’s coverage. For couriers who deliver on foot or bicycle, Postmates provides a $1 million general liability policy for third party injuries and third party property damage.
    • Uber Eats – Uber Eats provides similar coverage to couriers as it does to drivers, “$1 million of liability coverage per incident. Uber holds a commercial insurance policy with $1 million of coverage per incident. Drivers’ liability to third parties is covered from the moment a driver accepts the request to deliver meals or goods to the time the delivery is complete.”

    Instacart currently not does not offer any kind of vehicle insurance to their full-service shoppers or drivers. You will definitely want to add on an insurance policy for delivery if you choose to drive for Instacart.

    What if my area doesn’t have any rideshare insurance options?

    Over the past year, almost all of the major carriers have begun offering rideshare insurance policies for drivers.  This is great news since we no longer need to worry about being dropped by our insurance company if we insure with a rideshare-friendly insurance company. This is why it pays to get multiple rideshare insurance quotes!

    But changing insurance is obviously not a simple matter since many of us have policies across our homes, other cars, etc.  My hope is that one day all major carriers will offer rideshare-friendly policies but, until then, drivers will have to either switch insurers or assume the risk of going without a rideshare friendly policy.

    Rideshare Insurance Companies: Rideshare Insurance Cost

    Rideshare insurance is widely available these days and even some of the most well-known insurance providers are offering competitive coverage levels for drivers. Here’s what some of the top 4 big names in the industry offer.

    GEICO Rideshare Insurance

    Geico offers rideshare insurance in most states and they offer a hybrid coverage option which covers you when you drive rideshare along with when you drive for personal reasons. Geico’s rideshare insurance is comprehensive and covers you for all three periods of Uber and Lyft driving including when the app is on and you are waiting for a passenger (Period 1) when you’re en route to a passenger (Period 2), and when passengers are in your car (Period 3).

    This hybrid insurance also covers you when you’re doing food delivery (Uber Eats for example) and there are no strict mileage restrictions.

    You will have to contact GEICO for costs, as it varies by state.

    Allstate Rideshare Insurance

    Allstate offers a rideshare endorsement to your regular auto insurance policy which will help cover your vehicle while you’re rideshare driving. Allstate’s rideshare endorsement helps close the infamous  Period 1 coverage gap when Uber and Lyft’s insurance won’t cover you if you get into an accident when the app is on and you’re waiting for a trip.

    However, Allstate’s endorsement won’t cover you during Periods 2 and 3 when Uber and Lyft’s insurance would cover you. With this policy, you’d also get deductible gap coverage so if you did need to file a claim through Uber or Lyft, Allstate would reimburse you for a portion of that deductible, so that it matches the deductible on your personal policy. For example, if you have to pay Lyft’s high deductible of $2,500 and your Allstate insurance deductible is only $500, you’d get reimbursed the difference.

    Adding a rideshare endorsement to an existing policy can only cost you an extra $10 – $20 per month.

    State Farm

    State Farm is another company that offers ‘gap coverage’ for rideshare drivers that extends to your personal policy to include Period 1 coverage. In fact, State Farm’s rideshare insurance can provide you with some amount of coverage during all 3 periods for rideshare drivers.

    According to State Farm reps, adding a rideshare coverage endorsement “typically adds about 15–20 percent to your current premium.”

    Here’s how State Farm rideshare insurance works:

    State Farm coverage graphicFarmers

    Farmers was one of the first insurers to offer rideshare endorsements. Like many other companies thy offer ‘gap coverage’ for rideshare drivers which can be added to a standard personal policy. While Farmer’s rideshare insurance is not a commercial policy, it does extend coverage through Period 1 so you’re completely covered when rideshare driving.

    You can expect to pay about 25% more for your Farmers policy with a rideshare endorsement, but you won’t have to worry about getting dropped for driving for companies like Uber or Lyft. Another perk is that Farmer’s offers a rental car/loss of use option where they will provide you with a rental car or a set amount per day each day that your car is out of commission. There are caps for this of course, but it’s a nice benefit to have overall.

    USAA Rideshare Insurance

    USAA offers rideshare insurance as an add-on option to an existing USAA auto policy. Because of this setup, the total cost will be only slightly more than a regular policy – and USAA policies themselves are some of the most affordable policies anywhere, making it an extremely good deal.

    One of our readers reported that USAA’s rideshare addendum cost them an extra $16 per month. For some drivers, it’s as low as $6. Another reader and Uber driver reported that her total 6-month cost to insure a 2015 Nissan Sentra through USAA came to just $385 – including the rideshare add-on. You’d be hard-pressed to find a cheaper policy anywhere.

    USAA has a pretty good reputation as an insurer, and although their rideshare coverage isn’t the most thorough, it does offer what’s known as “gap coverage” or “period one coverage.”

    As you know, insurance costs vary by company vastly. They also vary based on the services you want included in them and also on your own driving record. The best advice is to shop around. Find all of your options available in your area and choose the insurance company that works best for you.

    After doing some shopping around in California, I found that there was a range of $113 to $205 a month for rideshare insurance, which is in line with what I’ve found for most other drivers.

    If you have a better driving record or you live in an area that is cheaper to insure, you may be on the lower end. But for a lot of drivers, the average quote may come in at around $150/month.

    One thing to keep in mind is what all is covered by each insurance company. For instance, in my research for the price range, I found that State Farm was the only company that offered coverage for all three periods instead of just period one so you can fully process your claim through State Farm instead of going through the TNC.

    On the other hand, if you have Allstate and get into an accident during period 2 or 3, Allstate will pay part of Uber’s $1000 deductible (or Lyft’s $2,500 deductible, etc) to make it match the deductible on your policy.

    What are deductibles and why do auto insurance companies charge them?

    Here’s the author’s coverage, showing how much his payments would change if he decreased his deductible to $500.

    Your deductible is the out-of-pocket portion of damages paid by you, the policy holder. What? It’s insurance!

    Why should you have to pay for any of it? The reason insurance companies charge a deductible is to discourage very small claims that would drive up administrative expenses. In exchange for having to pay a deductible in the event of a mishap, the policy holder gets a reduced premium (the amount you pay to get the coverage) depending on how large that deductible is.

    In most cases, consumers pay something like $250-1000 dollars.

    Which companies can help you avoid high deductibles?

    Allstate and State Farm are your best bets to avoid high deductibles as an Uber or Lyft driver. 

    Allstate’s program helps pay the difference of the deductible you have with them, and what you would owe in period 2 and 3.

    For example:  If you have a $500 deductible on your policy with Allstate, Allstate could pay the difference if you have an accident in period 2 and 3 to Uber and Lyft, in this case $500 to Uber and $2,000 to Lyft.

    State Farm’s rideshare endorsement is more extensive than most other options since they extend their coverage limits during period 1, 2 and 3.  This means that your personal deductible will be in effect any time you are behind the wheel, even when you are driving for Uber or Lyft.

    Also, if you have other coverages such as medical, towing and rental car coverage, those will also be in affect even when driving for Uber and Lyft.

    Shopping around and knowing what you want while comparing what each company offers is the best way to go about finding the right rideshare insurance for you. 

    Other Insurance Companies that Offer Rideshare Insurance:

    • Erie Insurance
    • Liberty Mutual
    • Mercury
    • Quoteasy/Bristol West

    How to Buy Rideshare Insurance

    It’s crucial to work with an insurance agent familiar with rideshare driving (and delivery, if you want to drive for delivery).

    That’s why here at The Rideshare Guy, we interview every rideshare insurance agent before we add them to our list of agents – there’s nothing worse than buying insurance from an agent that ends up not covering you because your agent doesn’t understand Uber or Lyft!

    Here’s what you need to know before buying rideshare insurance:

    • Will you be adding other policies, like homeowners or renters, to your auto policy? If so, that could save you money.
    • Reach out to all the insurance agents in your state (check out our by-state resources below). Compare rates and options.
    • Decide what you must have when it comes to coverage.
    • Understand any gaps in your policy or any benefits that distinguish companies from each other.
    • Make sure to tell your agent you’re a rideshare driver – let them know RSG sent you!

    What Happens If You Get Into an Accident While Driving for Uber, Lyft or a Delivery App?

    This is a very common question among rideshare drivers, unfortunately, given how much we are all on the road. You can read more about how to handle rideshare insurance when you get into an accident or chat with a Lawyer, and here are more tips:

    If You Are At Fault

    This means that you and your insurance company bear the brunt of the financial responsibility.  Here are the different pieces of the insurance policy and what they apply to:

    • Liability – This part of your policy will cover damage to other cars, property and people that were involved in the accident.  Any injured persons that were in your car that are not direct family members are covered by liability as well. There is no deductible for any liability claims.
    • Collision – This part of your policy covers damages to your own vehicle.  There is usually a deductible associated with collision insurance and varies policy to policy.
    • Medical – This is one of the most misunderstood parts of insurance.  Medical insurance covers yourself and anyone else in your car for medical expenses prior to assignment of fault.

    If the Other Driver is At Fault

    This is certainly a better situation than the first example, but this is where most people get confused.  Coverages are used differently.

    • Liability – Not used here since you were not at fault.
    • Collision – This coverage is used temporarily until your insurance coverage can get payment from the other insurance company.  With most insurance companies, you will be subject to a deductible until the other insurance company pays.
    • Uninsured/Underinsured – This coverage is to protect you and your passengers should you get into an accident with an uninsured driver.  This coverage will pay out in the case the other person is at fault but does not have insurance.
    • Medical – This covers you and your passengers until the other insurance company pays.

    If the other driver is at fault, your insurance company should pay for the damages (mostly) and has a legal right and responsibility to collect from the insurance company of the at-fault party.  This is a valuable service that insurance companies perform if you allow them to, if the damages are higher than your collision deductible and/or if there are injuries.

    What Happens If I Get Into an Accident Driving for Uber or Lyft with a Rental Car?

    Bryant Greening of Legal Rideshare encourages drivers to move swiftly and avoid keeping the rented vehicle in their possession for an extended time after an accident.

    “It does get pretty complicated with rentals, as it’s tough to know who to call. Generally, you want to get the car out of your hands as quickly as possible to avoid being charged the rental fee.

    It may be best to go directly to the facility/dealership where you picked up the car. You should be able to return the car, or get instructions on how to do so.

    If you need to make an insurance claim, contact the at-fault driver’s insurance company and explain that you need repairs based on an accident their insured caused. Being a rental car, this is the last option.”

    You can read more specifically about how to handle a rental car accident with Uber and Lyft here.

    What About Uber’s Driver Injury Protection Program?

    Uber announced a 5 cent per mile pay increase in order to fund Driver Injury Protection insurance. Uber announced they are doing this in partnership with Aon as a program for drivers to sign up for injury protection and pay into a fund OR simply collect an extra $0.05/mile. That’s obviously not a huge pay increase, but every little bit counts.

    Specifically, benefits include:

    • Disability Payments: earnings replacement to a maximum of $500/week.
    • Medical Expenses: medical expenses to a maximum of $1,000,000 with no deductible or co pay.
    • Survivor Benefits: to a maximum of $150,000 for your family.

    Basically, If an Uber driver is injured or hurt on the job, they will have their medical expenses covered with an earnings reimbursement of up to $500/week depending on their previous driver pay history. According to an Uber spokesman, this will include up to $1,000,000 in protection.

    This type of insurance can be valuable for a full-time driver who spends between 40 and 60 hours a week on the road because driving is inherently a dangerous job. The more time one spends on the road, the more likely they are to get into an accident or experience a situation where their back gives out while lugging Larry’s luggage at the airport.

    GEICO Rideshare Insurance + Lyft

    Lyft is offering a special discount with GEICO for Lyft drivers (only) – with a GEICO rideshare insurance policy, you’ll save 25 cents extra on each Lyft ride you give, up to $500 every six months.

    In addition, you can also get a lower deductible (as low as $250) with this policy. As of now, this policy is not available for Express Drive rentals.

    Here’s how it works:
