Will RACT cover all Rideshare drivers?

RACT Insurance will cover any vehicles used for a ridesharing service up to 20 hours per week.

I want to become a Rideshare Driver, but I'm unsure if my current policy will cover me. What should I do?

Anyone thinking of becoming a Rideshare Driver should get in touch with their insurer before commencing any rideshares. Some insurance companies will not extend their services to cover ridesharing, so it's important to check in and ensure you've got adequate coverage.​

What happens if I get in an accident while offering a rideshare service?

In the unfortunate event that you get into an accident while offering a rideshare, contact us at your earliest convenience to lodge a claim and we'll guide you through the entire process making it as simple and stress-free as possible.

What if I don't disclose to my insurer that I'm offering ride-sharing?​

Our decision to insure you is based on the information you provide when entering into and during the contract of insurance. If you don't disclose and update this information upfront (before you commence ridesharing services) and you get into a car accident it may result in your claim being reduced or refused and/or your policy being cancelled. 

How do I find out what's included or excluded on my policy?

When you take out an insurance policy of any kind, it's important to read the relevant Product Disclosure Statement to find out what's covered and what's not.​ Click Here to view the PDS​
