Aon offers Ontario Uber drivers insurance policies through streamlined mobile submission

TORONTO, July 7, 2016 /CNW/ - Aon Risk Solutions, the global risk management business of Aon plc, today announced it is now offering personal ridesharing insurance policies designed specifically for Ontario Uber drivers.

As Uber's insurance broker, Aon has developed a comprehensive understanding of the business, driver tendencies and coverage requirements, resulting in a personal insurance product unlike others available in the marketplace. The solution, developed in partnership with Intact Insurance Company, is not restricted by driver age, years licensed or number of weekly ridesharing hours.

Uber is known for the ease with which its drivers and riders are connected via a mobile app. Aon created an online quoting tool for Uber drivers. Drivers of the ridesharing company can now go to uber.aon.ca and receive a quote instantly by simply taking a photo of their licence or entering their driver's licence number. The process can be completed in seconds.

"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 Ontario."

For more information, Uber drivers based in Ontario can now access an online quote at uber.aon.ca or by calling +1.800.448.2539.
