Now, with new Rideshare Insurance, it’s easy and affordable for drivers to get one policy for both personal and rideshare use.

Auto Insurance Specialists (“AIS”) today announces the availability of affordable Rideshare Insurance for drivers of Uber, Lyft, Sidecar and other Transportation Network Companies (“TNC’s”).

Without this insurance, drivers of TNC’s are at risk because there is a critical gap where neither the driver’s personal auto policy or the TNC company’s insurance fully covers them. This gap is when the driver has a rideshare app on but has not yet accepted a fare. Were an accident to occur during this gap period, the driver would be responsible “out-of-pocket” for costly damages, or even liability claims that could arise.

Rideshare Insurance through AIS is currently available in Arizona, California, Illinois, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas. It can be conveniently added to a personal auto insurance policy for as little as 20 cents a day. With AIS offering highly competitive car insurance rates, it’s easy and affordable for drivers to get one policy for both personal and rideshare use.

“Rideshare services offer a great benefit to consumers and a flexible job option for drivers. We’re happy to see insurance companies responding and offering new coverage options that protect drivers and are simple and economical to obtain,” said Mark Ribisi, president and CEO of Auto Insurance Specialists. “AIS is pleased to be among the first national agencies offering this coverage.”
