Car sharing and insurance

The ABI is supportive of car sharing platforms such as BlaBlaCar, Liftshare, GoCarShare. ABI motor insurers have agreed that your insurance cover will not be affected if your passengers contribute towards your journey costs (including fuel, vehicle depreciation and associated vehicle running costs), as long as lifts are given in a vehicle seating eight passengers or less. This does not apply if you make a profit from payments received or if carrying passengers is your business.

However, we recommend that if you are part of a car-sharing scheme, you check the terms and conditions carefully and speak to your insurer to check you have the right level of cover.
