Taxi and rideshare liability coverage is intended to protect you in the event of injuries or damages that your services or car cause. Liability insurance compensates others as a form of third-party coverage, meaning it doesn’t cover you or your employees. Taxi and rideshare liability insurance may compensate victims, such as covering their medical bills or the cost of replacing or repairing their property, giving you true peace of mind.
Your taxi and rideshare liability insurance may cover medical bills if a third-party person, such as a passenger or another driver, sustains an injury relating to your services. If your vehicle causes property damage, your policy may cover the costs of repairing the damage.
If an injured party files a covered claim, your insurance may keep you from paying thousands of dollars for damages. Your coverage may apply to medical, repair and legal expenses, depending on the court’s decision and your term’s limit.
We provide specialty customized insurance coverage through an all-in-one approach to fit your needs.

A policyholder with XINSURANCE may receive coverage for more than one vehicle, as long as they are scheduled. Personal auto insurance would be required for those cars too.
A policyholder should list all vehicles driven with hired services on the taxi and rideshare policy to ensure coverage. A vehicle driven for paid transportation with the taxi and rideshare liability insurance must also have personal auto coverage.
