8 things to know
- TNC (Transportation Network Company) policy: When a driver is driving for a TNC and a ride is in-progress or a ride has been accepted (the driver has pushed the button to accept a ride), the TNC policy is in effect.
- HyreCar policy: The HyreCar policy serves as primary insurance when a Driver has picked up a vehicle from an Owner and when a Driver has the TNC application turned on (that is, Driver has turned on the TNC application but has not accepted a fare).
- The HyreCar insurance is secondary when the driver is engaged in a ride facilitated by a Transportation Network Company (as soon as a ride is turned on or a fare has been accepted)
- As part of its Services, HyreCar offers limited insurance to Drivers and Owners. Insurance information will be delivered to Driver and Owner at the time of booking. HyreCar insurance is limited to caps of $300,000 in liability insurance and $25,000 in physical damage insurance.
A $2,500 deductible will be applied to the Driver for both liability and physical damage claims.
- The driver is responsible for a $2,500 deductible, regardless of fault/ no-fault in causing the physical damage to the vehicle. If there is a third-party involved, the driver must still pay the deductible first. The driver will then be reimbursed if the third party pays the claim. HyreCar will hold the driver's vehicle deposit and apply it against the deductible.
