My car is garaged in Tijuana. What insurance company will insure me for California only?

I'm sorry but since your car is garaged in Mexico, you will not be able to get insurance in California. Your insurance has to be in the state where the vehicle is registered.

Car Insurance Costs

Companies that provide rideshare coverage for Uber

Yes, there are insurance companies that will insure you if you drive for a rideshare company. You will need to have a special endorsement on the policy that allows you to drive for rideshare and you are usually required to have higher limits.

Coverage & Claims

Do I claim my stolen vehicle with Lyft or Geico?

This can depend. Most car insurance companies work together with Lyft/Uber in order to provide coverage as long as you have a rideshare endorsement. Below is a break down of how the coverage works.

General Insurance

I was in a zip car and got into a not-at-fault accident

If you have a police report with the at-fault party information on it, it's very likely Zipcar will contact them for the damage. However, I would check the insurance information you signed up for to see how you could be charged.

General Insurance

I didn't tell my insurance company I was ridesharing and got into an accident

If you do not have a rideshare endorsement on your policy, they might deny the claim. Insurance companies like to know all the risks they could potentially be exposed to and ridesharing presents a big one.

General Insurance

Will my Farmers insurance roadside assistance provide towing up to 250 miles?

Roadside assistance varies by insurance company. From my understanding, most towing and roadside assistance coverage offered as part of an auto policy either has a set dollar amount to cover a tow, covers towing up to 15 miles from your breakdown, or covers towing to the nearest repair facility.

Will my auto insurance cover me to drive for Uber?

Unfortunately most insurance companies are taking a wait-and-see approach to ridesharing coverage so the answer isn't exactly clear. Each insurance company also differs in how they operate so your best bet would be to ask your existing insurance company about this specific question before you start driving for Uber.
