What’s the difference between taxi insurance and rideshare insurance?
There are a few differences between taxi insurance and rideshare insurance. First, Taxi Cab drivers in NYC are required to have a Class A-E commercial license (CDL), while most rideshares only require a ‘regular’ class D license. However, New York has unique laws that govern rideshare drivers, so many rideshare drivers in NYC have a CDL. Commercial licenses are harder to get, and require additional driving knowledge. This makes drivers with a CDL easier (and often cheaper) to insure.
Another difference between rideshare and taxi insurance is the value of the vehicle that needs to be insured. Because many Rideshare apps have luxury options (like Uber Lux), the valuation of rideshare vehicles is often a little higher than the average taxi cab. The more valuable the vehicle is, the more it costs to insure.
In NYC, luxury rideshare drivers with a Class D license may be subject to a higher premium. To make sure you get the best deal on your rideshare insurance, it pays to shop with DCAP Insurance.
