I'm from rhode island and I want to start driving for uber. I was wondering if I need full coverage insurance or if liabity is fine?

I have "gap" insurance from USAA ($34/6-months) for the time I'm logged into the app until I get a ride. After that Uber/Lyft insurance kicks in from the time you accept a ride to drop off. After that you go back to "gap" if you keep the app on, or personal if you turn the app off.

Dont drive for $.80 a mile.

Your car cost about $.30 per mile (gas, tires,oil change)

If you drive to pick up a pax
5 miles $.30x5=$1.50 cost
Pax goes 5 miles at the minimum $4
You drop the Pax drive back 5 miles

$4-20%=$3.20
$3.20-$4.50= -$1.30 loss

If you want you can save the miles, wear, tear and send me the $1.30

So they have no issues being a ride share driver? Wawaneesa covers me as long as I am not transporting goods or people for hire in my car, basically period 3. So, I am standing pat with their contract details of liability exclusions. Good rate for the coverage gap with uber. Let me know if no issues with primary coverage rates on your personal policy.
