Partner Protection

IMPORTANT NOTE: Partner Protection Insurance will be removed in Ireland from the 1st of January 2023. Eligible drivers who make a claim for the period within 2022, will still be covered, even if they submit their claim after December 31st 2022.

Partner Protection: You’re independent, but you’re not on your own

Life-changing events like injury, sickness, or having a baby don’t have to come with all the additional financial stress.

If you’re an eligible independent driver or delivery partner who uses an Uber App in some parts of Europe, from June 1st you will have insurance from the Partner Protection insurance to help protect you and your loved ones from the financial cost of accidents or life events. This insurance is provided at no cost to you.

How to make a claim:

If you would like to make a claim for an On-Trip accident, or for an Off-Trip life event, please use the Partner Protection insurance online claims form found on the Partner Protection site.

Covers include:
- Daily Inconvenience payment while you cannot work, because of an On-Trip Injury
- Reimbursement of rehabilitation or medical costs
- Hospitalisation inconvenience one-off payment
- Disability and death compensation
- Severe Sickness or injury daily inconvenience payments
- Maternity/Paternity one-off payment

Eligibility applies to the Off-Trip covers and simply requires:
- Driver-partners to complete at least 150 trips in the 8 weeks prior to a loss.
- Delivery Partners to complete at least 30 trips in the 8 weeks prior to a loss.
