Answer one more question to help decide if you need ridesharing insurance:
Transportation Network Company (TNC)
A Transportation Network Company is a ridesharing company like Uber and Lyft.
If you use a mobile app to give people rides or deliver items, you likely work for a TNC. Answer one more question to help decide if you need ridesharing insurance:
Did you know that most personal auto policies exclude, "drive for hire"? Also, the insurance you get through your TNC doesn't cover you while you're not working. That means if you only have one or the other you may be at risk of:
- Voiding your personal auto coverage
- Having limited or no coverage when you need it
- Having to pay out of pocket for repairs
With GEICO's Ridesharing Insurance, you're covered whether you're working or not.
If you drive a car most states require some form of auto insurance, and if you drive for a TNC you will want to have coverage specifically for ridesharing. When you choose GEICO you'll get access to:
- Licensed insurance agents to get you properly insured
- Multiple coverage options, such as liability, uninsured motorist, rental reimbursement coverage, and more

Liability? What's that?
Liability coverages are typically required by the state and help protect you in the event that you are in an at fault car accident. Basically they cover the other people and their property. Whether it's damages your car causes to property or injuries to other people, make sure you are covered. These include:
Property damage coverage pays for damages caused by your vehicle to someone else's property. It also provides you with a legal defense if another party files a lawsuit against you.
This covers you in the event that you injure or kill another person while using your car. It can also provide a legal defense if another party in the accident files a lawsuit against you.
First party coverage: It's your party, choose what you want to.
First party coverage's are usually optional (unless you have a lienholder). Basically these coverages protect you, your vehicle, and your passengers. These coverages include:
Pays for damage to your car when your car hits, or is hit by another vehicle or object regardless of fault.
Comprehensive Physical Damage Coverage:
This pays for losses resulting from incidents other than collision. For example, damage to your car if it is stolen; or damaged by flood, fire, or animals.
Medical payments, no-fault or personal injury protection:
Depending on the state, this coverage goes by different names. No matter the name, this coverage typically pays for medical expenses of injured people inside of your vehicle. This coverage could also apply if you are injured as a pedestrian.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage:
Pays for injuries to you caused by an uninsured driver or in some states, a hit-and-run driver. Some states also have uninsured motorist coverage for damage to your vehicle.
