Ridesharing continues to be a hot trend in transportation with millions of rides being provided daily and drivers using privately owned cars to offer Uber, Lyft or similar services.
If you’ve joined the rideshare community as a driver, you may not realize that the insurance coverage provided by the different ridesharing services can vary greatly. Some companies may not provide coverage during the time when the phone app is running but no passenger has requested a ride.
That’s why ERIE offers auto insurance with ridesharing coverage that ensures drivers have coverage during every part of the trip. It’s available by putting a “business use” designation on your personal car insurance policy. It doesn’t cost a lot and your ERIE agent will walk you through the details.
To make sure you’re adequately covered, ask your Miller’s Insurance agent for information and a quote for an ERIE auto policy with rideshare coverage.
ERIE’s rideshare coverage is excess to other available coverage. It will provide liability if there is no other coverage. Comprehensive and collision coverage are provided if purchased on the policy. Coverage is subject to limitations and exclusions. See the policy or a Miller’s Insurance agent for details.
