What is my liability in case of an accident?

Rest assured knowing that we have full insurance coverage (including $1,000,000 in liability coverage – more than double the recommended amount) which is included in our usage rates. We have a $500 deductible on all our vehicles, so if you are in an accident, that would be the limit of your financial liability. However, if you violate any of the rules of membership and you are cited for a DUI or reckless driving, etc., all bets are off and you could be held legally responsible for much more than the $500 deductible.

You may also enroll in our Damage Fee Waiver Program, which provides peace of mind by reducing your out-of-pocket cost for damage that occurs during your use of an eGo CarShare vehicle. You can reduce your prospective liability from a $500 deductible to $0. By enrolling in our Damage Fee Waiver Program, you pay $45 annually per driver and if an incident occurs, your deductible is reduced to $0 instead of $500. Please see the FAQs below for more information. All drivers under the age of 21, or those who have NOT held a US issued drivers license for at least two years, are required to enroll.
