Developed in collaboration with Uber, we are the first insurer in Canada to offer extensive coverage for all drivers and passengers who use Uber ridesharing services in Ontario. With the growing popularity of the sharing and on-demand economy, we’re excited to offer innovative solutions that meet consumer’s changing needs.
How are drivers and passengers protected?
Intact Insurance provides commercial insurance coverage from the moment drivers make themselves available to accept a ride request, to the moment passengers exit the vehicle. This coverage automatically applies to all Uber drivers (regardless of their personal auto insurance provider) and passengers.
When Uber drivers are using their vehicle for personal use, Intact Insurance, Novex, Jevco and belairdirect customers are protected as usual under their personal auto insurance policy at no additional cost.
What should drivers do next?
All Uber drivers must contact their broker or insurance provider to advise that they are participating in ridesharing activity.
If you are an Uber driver or are considering becoming one, talk to your broker or insurance provider directly, to learn more.
