Rideshare Insurance

GEICO Rideshare Insurance can protect you 24/7.

Driving to pay off student loans? Supporting your family? Saving up for something? You can't afford to depend only on Uber or Lyft for coverage. If you don't have rideshare insurance, you run the risk of:

  • Losing your personal auto coverage
  • Falling into coverage gaps for accidents that occur while you're ridesharing or driving for on-demand deliveries
  • Paying out of pocket for repairs, injuries, and more

Why risk it? GEICO Rideshare Insurance covers you all the time, so you can focus on making money, not worry about losing it.

What is GEICO's rideshare insurance?

  • GEICO Rideshare Insurance takes the place of your personal auto policy.
  • App on or app off, you're covered by the same insurance.
  • You only have to manage one auto policy.
  • GEICO does not offer add-on rideshare policies or extensions.

Who is ridesharing insurance for?

You need rideshare insurance if you drive for a ridesharing or on-demand delivery company, such as:

  • Uber
  • Lyft
  • Amazon Flex
  • Grubhub
  • DoorDash
  • Instacart
  • Postmates
  • Uber Eats

You're not limited to one company. You can drive for several.

You're at risk without rideshare insurance.

Insurance from Uber or Lyft on top of a personal car insurance policy isn't best for covering all situations, as this chart shows.

Personal use Waiting for a rider (Phase 1) Going to pick up a rider (Phase 2) Driving with a rider on board (Phase 3)
App off App on App on App on
GEICO Rideshare Insurance Covered Covered Covered Covered
Most Personal Auto Insurance Covered Not typically covered Not typically covered Not typically covered
Uber's Insurance* Not covered Limited coverage Covered with $1,000 deductible for damage to your vehicle Covered with $1,000 deductible for damage to your vehicle
Lyft's Insurance* Not covered Limited coverage Covered with $2,500 deductible for damage to your vehicle Covered with $2,500 deductible for damage to your vehicle

Example: You're waiting with the app on (phase 1) when you're involved in an accident. Your car is damaged and you're hurt. Neither your personal auto policy nor your rideshare company would necessarily pay for all your medical bills and repairs. But with GEICO Rideshare Insurance you'd be covered.
