Earlier this year, Uber Uganda extended their smartphone app with a new Boda option dubbed UberBODA providing the riders a quick commute from one place to another. To continue their commitment to passengers, the Taxi hailing leader has announced a new innovative insurance product designed specifically for UberBoda riders in a time when a lucky group enjoyed the comfort of Flying with UberAIr.
One of Uber’s highest priorities is the safety and security of users, and insurance is a critical part of their safety programme. All over the world, Uber’s ride-sharing option has revolutionised the way in which people move around their cities, ensuring that passengers, whether it’s in the backseat of a vehicle or on the back of a Boda-Boda bike, they can get from A to B in the most convenient, reliable, secure and affordable way possible.
A new insurance policy which is designed to cover uberBODA passengers while on the back of a uberBODA in Kampala will be provided by UAP Old Mutual Life Assurance Uganda, the Market leader in Life Insurance in Uganda and a subsidiary of Old Mutual Africa.
In the unfortunate event of an accident while on a trip, the coverage provides passenger accident insurance, which covers:
- Accidental Death and Permanent Total Disability: The benefit will cover up to UGX 1 800 000 per person. The next of kin or beneficiaries will also receive UGX 550 000 for funeral costs.
- Accident Medical Expense: When injuries as a result of any Accident require treatment, the passenger will be covered up to UGX 600 000
With a new Insurance policy by Uber Uganda, the list of services with such as policy are now 2 including DialJack. As the competition continues to Fasten with Safeboda having the best credit option available. Uber boda riders will enjoy a great option at no cost, but simply the trip fares.
