Florida Rideshare Insurance FAQs
Why do I need special insurance because I drive for a rideshare program? Insurance is based on risk and insurance carriers see rideshare drivers as high risk because they drive more. Rideshare operators also transport people so this can lead to an increase in risk.
Will my current insurance carrier cover me if I drive for a rideshare service? Not all insurance companies offer this type of coverage. It is important that you talk to your insurance carrier to make sure you are properly covered in the event of a claim. Many insurance companies will non-renew or cancel your coverage if you operate for a rideshare service.
What would an auto policy with the rideshare endorsement cover? Typically companies like Uber and Lyft provide coverage for you when you “accept” a ride. During the ride the rideshare company’s commercial auto insurance applies. Then, when the rider exits the vehicle, and you are waiting for another rider, your personal policy applies. When you are not logged into the app or transporting people, it is just like a normal auto policy and all of the coverage you selected applies. Below you will see a diagram that will help you understand how this coverage works.
How much does insurance cost for rideshare operators in Florida? Insurance rates vary greatly throughout the State of Florida and are based on many factors. Some of the major factors that determine insurance rates include your age, driving record, credit and claims history. If you are operating for a rideshare company such as Uber or Lyft you will also need to add the “rideshare” endorsement and this can increase the premium.
Is this considered commercial insurance? No, this is a personal auto policy the rideshare endorsement. This type of policy would provide coverage while you are using the vehicle for personal use and in between rides when the rideshare company’s commercial auto insurance does not apply.
