Starting Today, Farmers Insurance(R) to Begin Offering Rideshare Insurance Coverage for Ride-Hailing Drivers in Idaho

The new Farmers Rideshare Insurance Coverage can provide Farmers customers coverage when a driver turns on the ride-hailing application and during the time the driver is awaiting a match. The Farmers Rideshare Insurance Coverage will extend a driver’s Farmers auto insurance coverage until they accept a ride, at which point their TNC affiliate’s commercial insurance coverage would apply.

Farmers Rideshare Insurance Coverage enables a driver to select the coverage that fits their needs; including comprehensive and collision coverage that can pay for damages to their own vehicle, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (in case they are hit by a driver who isn’t insured or is underinsured) and Medical Payments coverage.

Farmers is making it simple for existing customers, and others interested in a Farmers policy, who are rideshare drivers to quickly and easily select this new coverage by calling their local agent or the following toll-free number, 855-808-6599. Consumers may also visit farmers.com/rideshare to find a local agent.
