Insurance is included in eGo CarShare’s hourly and daily rates. We have $1,000,000 in liability coverage and a $500 deductible for at fault accidents. If you’re interested in further reducing your risk, please look at our Damage Fee Waiver Program which reduces the $500 deductible to $0.
The long version*
eGo’s Liability coverage is $1,000,000. This coverage pays for any bodily injury or property damage that is caused by an eGo driver’s negligence. This would pay for injuries to someone in another vehicle or damage to their property – as long as eGo’s driver is legally liable for the damages.
Damage to eGo vehicles caused by an accident would be paid for by our Collision coverage (Physical Damage). This coverage is subject to a $500 deductible. Collision coverage pays for any collision with our vehicles (including damage while parked) – regardless of who is at fault in the accident. If another party causes the damage to an eGo vehicle, and they are found legally liable for the damage – our insurance carrier would pay for the damage, but attempt to recover the amount paid (plus our deductible) from the party who caused the damage.
Comprehensive Coverage pays for damage to eGo vehicles caused by something other than a collision. (ie: theft, vandalism, hail damage, etc). Collision with an animal is also covered under Comprehensive. This coverage is also subject to a $500 deductible.
eGo’s policy also has a $5,000 Medical Payments limit. This pays for medical bills incurred by the driver and any passengers in eGo vehicles – regardless of fault. After the $5,000 limit is reached, if the other driver is legally liable, their liability policy pays for the injuries to an eGo driver. If they have no insurance, or it is a hit and run – then eGo’s Uninsured Motorist coverage pays for the injuries.
If eGo’s driver is legally liable for the accident, after the $5,000 in Medical Payments is exhausted, their personal medical insurance coverage would pay for their medical bills. Other than the $5,000 in Medical Payments, eGo’s insurance does not cover injuries to one of eGo drivers if they have no medical insurance and their negligence causes the accident.
