Allstate to begin offering insurance to drivers and riders

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) - As ridesharing continues to grow in popularity, one insurance company is taking steps to help protect drivers and riders on the road.

Allstate now offers commercial driving insurance for Uber in Utah. Allstate had previously been offering the service only in Illinois, New Jersey, New York, and Wisconsin. Their coverage has now expanded to Utah, Alaska, Idaho, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.

The insurance policies insure the entire trip for the driver, starting from when a driver-partner turns on the Uber app, to rider pick up and during the trip. Riders are protected at no additional cost every time they take an Uber.

The expanded insurance offerings will also apply to Uber Eats drivers.

“We know consumers are embracing the sharing economy,” said Allstate Executive Vice President Tom Troy. “We want to grow by protecting people from life’s uncertainties, including those within this emerging market. We’re excited to expand our partnership with Uber and bring Allstate’s legacy of safety to even more people.”

Something doesn't add up. Allstate already offers a rideshare endorsement in WA. And, why would it cover all three periods as reported?

So, does this supplant James River? Is that the story here?

I wouldn't trust it. I'm in Wisconsin and here's what they sent me. I'm keeping my gap insurance which only costs about $100 a year.

$100.... a year? I’m paying $300 a MONTH.
Checkout Geico's Rideshare Commercial insurance, $143 / month.

I'm moving to Progressive, which uses a rider, so I don't have to pay "extra" for rideshare insurance.

Also have you looked at coverages for James River? $50K when without a passenger, a huge change from $1M (I believe) from before.

Thanks, just got new policy with them here in Denver, so I'll check it out, had travelers insurance and it went up $700, no tickets or accidents in 40 plus years, they would lower $136 a year if I took a driving class! Really after 60k miles last year. BS

Geico wanted to charge me about $400 a month for that to insure one car. I insure two cars with State Farm, including rideshare gap insurance for about $300. Keep in mind, I have a pretty clean driving record. I’m married with kids, and in my 30s. My credit isn’t good, but that’s about it. I told them just where they could stick that commercial policy.
