According to Liam Croy – The West Austalian, WA UberX drivers could be exposing themselves to significant financial risks despite assurances from the ride-hailing business that they are covered.
Prospective drivers, such as Queens Park man Liam Ducey, have been told by Uber representatives their insurers will honour claims, only to find that was not the case.
Only one insurer contacted by The West Australian – SGIO – said they had made a “discretionary decision” to cover members who revealed they drove for UberX.
The rest, including RAC, AAMI and QBE, said driving for UberX would void their private and commercial policies.
