When the driver signs into the app and is trolling for a passenger, Uber limits coverage to only $50,000/$100,000 total for injuries and $25,000 for property damage to others. Beyond those limits, the driver is personally responsible for damages – coverage under their personal auto policy does not apply.


2. Umbrella Policies
