Rideshare Insurance Offered Through AIS

Ridesharing companies only covers their drivers, under their commercial insurance policy, when a fare has been accepted and when a customer is being transported. Your personal auto insurance policy only covers you when your ride-share app is turned off. That leaves you exposed to paying for accidents out of your own pocket for the period where you are waiting to accept a far.
With the specially designed rideshare insurance policy, you will be protected when your app is turned off and during the period in which you are waiting to accept a fare.

Frequently Asked Questions
- Why do I need Ridesharing Insurance?
- Will my personal auto insurance be enough?
- When is the ride-sharing coverage applicable?
- How much will it cost me?
The TNC coverage from ridesharing companies are limited and don’t fully cover you during your work hours. Most companies’ Transportation Network Companies (TNC) coverage doesn’t become effective until a ride has been accepted on your app. That leaves you exposed to being uninsured or underinsured during Period 1, which is when you are waiting to accept a fare. In addition, the limited coverage does not cover repairs to your own car if you get into an accident during this period.
Your Personal Auto Insurance is effective only when your ride-sharing app is turned off. When you app is turned on, your time becomes classified as business hours and the personal auto insurance becomes inapplicable. Most auto insurance carriers exclude Period 1 from coverage, so you are left uninsured in that time. Personal auto insurance is not the proper coverage if you drive for ridesharing companies.
This coverage is an extension to a driver’s personal auto insurance policy. The coverage extends through Period 1 when you are waiting to accept a ride. When you have the ridesharing insurance coupled with the companies’ TNC coverage, you will have complete protection throughout the entire ridesharing drive cycle.
Depending on the amount and type of coverage that you choose, the cost can be as little as $.20 cents per day.
