USAA Rideshare Endorsement (Spoiler: It SUCKS!)

If you have USAA and their "rideshare endorsement" and think you're covered, think again.

Unlike with Geico "Hybrid" or State Farm rideshare, none of your USAA coverage applies to period 2 (picking up a passenger) or period 3 (driving with a passenger).

That means if you get in an accident while Ubering you have NO TOWING. No, your USAA Roadside service will not tow you if you're in an accident while driving for Uber (I know I tried). It also means no MEDICAL coverage and no RENTAL CAR coverage. Uber doesn't provide towing, medical, or rental either. If your car takes a month to fix then you're just out of luck.

Geico ("Hybrid"), State Farm (ride share), and perhaps others would arrange a tow for you, get you a rental, and cover any medical expenses if you had that coverage. USAA doesn't... I really hope they fix that because they're otherwise a great company.

In my case, a Geico "Hybrid" Commercial policy cost just a few dollars more that USAA for a lot more coverage. I urge everyone to share their opinions... being in a wreck is awful, but being in a wreck while driving for Uber with USAA is even worse.

By the way... "Hybrid" in this case refers to the type of insurance policy, a "hybrid" between personal and commercial. It has nothing to do with hybrid vehicles like Prius.

IDK, I think you have it wrong.

Disclosures: Countrywide average price for policyholders who have $100,000 per person/$300,000 per accident Bodily Injury coverage. Rideshare Gap Protection extends your personal auto policy coverage from the time you turn on the rideshare app until you are matched with a passenger. Rates vary by location and risk and are subject to change.
did you even read what you posted ?

from the time you turn on the rideshare app until you are matched with a passenger.

that is only period 1, which is exactly what the OP was saying
