Uber, Rideshare and Insurance

Can you cover my car for ridesharing?

Yes, we can cover you for ridesharing. We've assisted thousands of drivers around Australia with the appropriate insurance. With much misinformation on the internet in regards to cover, it's important you get the right advice. That's where our team can help give you peace of mind.

Why use us and not direct insurers?

We understand that when using your car for business you rely on your car for income. With premiums just as competitive as direct insurers, you'll also get our service and advice in a claim to ensure you're back on the road as soon as possible. We are also able to offer 'unlimited' rideshare cover. This means you can work as little or as much as you want when it comes to ridesharing.

How does insurance work for ridesharing?

We've negotiated policies that will cover you privately and for ridesharing. Simply take out a third party or comprehensive insurance policy and this will replace your current private insurance.

Can I use any insurance company?

Many private car insurance policies will have an exclusion for carrying fare paying passengers, and with any insurance you have a duty of disclosure so it's important to tell your insurance you are performing ridesharing activities.

Is rideshare insurance expensive?

You'll be happy to know that most rideshare friendly policies are similar to a private insurance cost. Like any insurance, location, type of vehicle, age and claims history can affect the premium.

Which rideshare services are covered?

Most rideshare policies will only cover Uber X, however, there are many other services available and these include Uber XL, Select, Uber Black, Uber Eats, Shebah, GoCatch, Lyft and more. When talking to our team, let them know which platforms you'll be operating on so we can ensure you are appropriately covered.

Should I take out Public Liability insurance?

Public Liability insurance is always recommended. Now that Uber is regulated, we recommend at least $5M cover. These policies are inexpensive and will give you protection from financial consequences should you be liable to a third party. You can purchase rideshare public liability online at RideshareLiability.com.au
