Aon commends Alberta's decision to embrace ridesharing insurance

CALGARY, July 4, 2016 /CNW/ - Aon Risk Solutions, the global risk management business of Aon plc, today announced it is offering tailor-made personal line insurance policies that recognize ridesharing to the hundreds of Uber drivers requiring coverage in Alberta. Unlike other personal line policies available in the market, the solutions offered by Aon have no restrictions related to driver age, years licensed or the amount of weekly ridesharing hours.

As Uber's insurance broker, Aon worked directly with the transportation facilitator and insurers to build a customized personal line insurance solution. The coverage meets the needs of Uber drivers, passengers and the Superintendent of Insurance of Alberta's mandate to provide access to insurance protection and help ensure the safety of all parties.

"Ridesharing continues to grow at a rapid pace and is changing how we travel," said Caroline Mills-White, senior vice president of personal lines for Aon Risk Solutions in Canada. "As a result, insurance must evolve to meet the changing needs of drivers and passengers alike in Alberta."

For more information, Uber drivers based in Alberta can now access an online quote at or by calling +1.800.448.2539.  Aon is excited about offering Uber drivers this new product through Intact and Pembridge.
