Do You Need Rideshare Insurance?

If you use your personal car when you drive for a ridesharing company like Uber or Lyft, the answer may be yes.

That’s because the insurance offered by transportation network companies (TNC) like these may not cover what you expect or need. If you’re involved in an accident – especially if you’re injured – you could find yourself paying for damages out of your own pocket.

At State Farm®, we offer competitively priced insurance for rideshare drivers that takes away the uncertainty around coverage when you drive for a TNC.

How Does Rideshare Insurance Work?

If you’re a State Farm customer and you’re considering becoming a driver for a rideshare company, first talk with your agent about adding rideshare coverage to your policy.

When you buy rideshare insurance from State Farm, you’re purchasing an add-on to your existing personal auto insurance policy. It extends the coverage you’ve already purchased to the time you spend driving for a TNC.

State Farm’s rideshare insurance provides protection by:

  • Ensuring that medical, emergency roadside assistance and rental car reimbursement in your personal auto policy remains in effect when you’re working for a ridesharing company (requirements may vary by state).
  • Putting your personal policy deductible into effect, even if you’re driving for a TNC. If your personal policy deductible is less than your TNC’s deductible, you pay the lower amount.
  • When you have a claim, you communicate directly with State Farm – not through your ridesharing company.

How Much Does It Cost to Add Rideshare Insurance to My Policy?

State Farm rideshare driver coverage generally adds about 15 to 20 percent to your current auto insurance premium, depending on the coverages you've chosen, any discounts that may apply, and other rating factors.

So if you pay a premium of $300 every 6 months for your auto insurance, our rideshare coverage would add approximately $45 to $60 to your premium.
