Allstate disclosed that its coverage for Uber drivers is now offered in 11 additional states. Travelers’ Canadian arm is launching new services for specialty insurance corporate customers that come packaged with their insurance policy.
Allstate has expanded its coverage for Uber Technologies’ driver/partners into 11 more states.
Coverage now expands to Alaska, Idaho, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. For the past year, Allstate has partnered with Uber to provide commercial insurance protection to riders and drivers in Illinois, New Jersey, New York and Wisconsin.
The policies, managed by Allstate Business Insurance, insure the entire cycle of an Uber trip, from when a driver-partner turns on the Uber app to rider pick up and during the trip. Riders are protected under the Allstate policies at no additional cost every time they take an Uber.
Allstate’s expanded commercial coverage for Uber also includes its fast-growing food delivery service in certain states.
