July 9, 2016 - Toronto Intact Insurance has debuted a new ridesharing car insurance policy in Ontario that gives Uber a dynamic solution for protecting their vehicle and passengers while working for the company.

Uber drivers in Ontario are now able to operate with full commercial coverage thanks to the interim product from Intact Insurance.

Ridesharing coverage through Intact Insurance
Intact's Uber-oriented insurance product protects all aspects of the ridesharing experience, covering both drivers, passengers, and third parties. The commercial auto policy is attached to a normal personal auto line from any carrier, and is only activated when an Uber driver begins work.

To make the process simple to understand, Intact has broken it down into four phases (see figure for detail). Essentially, protection starts the moment the driver activates the Uber app to look for a fare, continues all through the passenger process, and ends when the passenger is dropped off. When a driver is not working for Uber, they are covered under the terms of their regular personal auto insurance policy.

"By working directly with Uber we've developed products made for the ridesharing industry that will safeguard consumers who use these services," said Jean-Francois Blais, President, Intact Insurance, adding, "As the popularity of the sharing economy grows, we recognize the changing market that brokers are operating in and we will continue our efforts to deliver products that help meet the evolving needs of your customers."

As well as providing near-instant quotes on ridesharing solutions from Intact Insurance, Ridesharing Car Insurance Canada is also a one-stop shop for information regarding Uber, ridesharing insurance, and news about the ridesharing industry.
