Farmers Insurance will be one of the first major companies to offer this coverage.  By adding this coverage you can avoid a potential gap in coverage.  The endorsement will provide coverage between rides and ride requests, once you become available for accepting requests. Come into our office or call us to learn more about this new coverage and about your options as a ridesharing driver.
