What insurance do I need for Uber Eats?

If you’re considering working as an Uber Eats driver in New Zealand, it’s important to understand the insurance requirements and challenges associated with this line of work.

In contrast to regular car insurance, most general insurers will refuse to insure Uber Eats drivers due to the higher risks associated with food delivery. As a result, you’ll need to look for alternative insurance options to ensure you’re fully covered while working for Uber Eats.

To find the best insurance policy for your needs, your best bet is to speak with a commercial insurance broker like us. We specialize in providing insurance for Uber or Uber Eats drivers in New Zealand. You can contact us now or for a quote or read more on Uber Eats Insurance here.

As an Uber Eats driver, you’re effectively operating a small business. Therefore, to be covered for damage to your vehicle and other third parties, you’ll need commercial insurance. It’s important to inform your insurer of the type of work you’ll be doing to ensure you’re adequately covered.

It’s crucial to understand that personal or domestic insurance policies typically won’t cover you for Uber driving. This means that if you have an incident while driving for Uber Eats, your insurer may not pay out, and your policy may be canceled.

In summary, as an Uber Eats driver in New Zealand, it’s essential to speak with a commercial insurance broker to find the right insurance policy for your needs. Personal or domestic insurance policies usually won’t provide adequate coverage, so it’s crucial to find the right commercial insurance policy to stay protected while on the job.
