Uber and Lyft Drivers: Do you have Gaps in your Coverage?

Uber, Lyft and other ride-share companies have become increasingly popular over the last couple of years. Not only are these services used by thousands, many have begun to seek employment as drivers for a transportation network company (TNC). It is no secret why: Ride-share drivers have flexible schedules, meet a diverse array of interesting people, and get to know the cities they call home.

There is one downside, however- A coverage gap. When drivers turn their TNC app on, personal auto policies are immediately suspended. The TNC you work for does provide coverage but ONLY upon accepting a passenger and dropping them off. If there is no passenger in the car and your TNC app is on, you are not covered.

Safeco now offers Ride-sharing Coverage that can effectively close this gap. Learn more about Ride-share Coverage below or click here to learn more! If you are in need of this coverage please call our agency at (360)-514-9550.
