Do you have adequate rideshare insurance?


SherpaShare and NerdWallet teamed up to survey Uber and Lyft drivers across the country on insurance. In the survey, conducted by SherpaShare (here, on the blog and within the Pulse app), 1,022 responded from the SherpaShare community. SherpaShare and NerdWallet wanted to determine whether drivers were adequately insured and the reasons for doing or not doing so. Here are the results!

Key Survey Outcomes

  • Most of those surveyed did not purchase additional insurance above what their ride share companies provide
  • The cost of additional insurance is an extremely important factor in why people avoid buying it
  • A large number of drivers underestimate the risk of not having adequate insurance
  • Most drivers are looking to buy insurance in the near future
  • Mandatory compliance laws being enacted leads to an increase in additional insurance purchase
