Egypt - Uber extends insurance to drivers
Thursday, 08 02 2018, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Egypt
Uber has today announced it will provide all drivers with an insurance product, Injury Protection’ across Egypt in partnership with AXA Egypt, one of the world’s most trusted insurers. Key to the product is the ability for drivers to be protected from the financial cost of injury, including medical expenses or lost earning opportunities when an accident takes place while driving on the Uber app, up to certain limits. This announcement forms part of Uber’s global commitment to driver protection and the safety and security of its customers, and will be funded by Uber at no cost to drivers and delivery partners.
Uber driver-partners and Uber Eats delivery-partners are automatically enrolled via an in-app message; from the moment they accept a trip or delivery request, while driving to pick up a rider or on the way to a restaurant, and until the trip ends or delivery is completed. All passengers are also automatically protected by the injury protection insurance, but can decline coverage if they so choose.
