Uber announced that local passengers will be provided with an updated insurance policy designed to cover injury or death while on an Uber trip.
Although Uber has existing insurance for passengers, it is partnering with local providers to extend its coverage.
The new policy is provided by Chubb insurance South Africa and will cover passenger accident insurance and compensation for serious injury or accidental death suffered during a trip.
Uber has also partnered with Road Cover which will provide assistance to riders and third parties with their submission of claims to Road Accident Fund (RAF).
Road Cover removes the complicated process that users face when processing a claim with Road Accident Fund.
