Rideshare Insurance

What is ridesharing?

Ridesharing is when the owner of a car, or a driver listed on the insurance policy, uses the car to provide trips or journeys for passengers for a fee. The arrangement must be made with the car owner or listed driver via a ridesharing platform, website or app.

Taxis, hire cars, and cars used in car sharing schemes are not treated as ridesharing.

How can I get rideshare insurance?

It depends on your coverage needs. You can get coverage for ridesharing with all levels of Suncorp Car Insurance, and all will cover damage caused to other people’s cars or property in an accident. If you choose Comprehensive Car Insurance, you can get cover for your own car as well.
