Other Uber benefits
Uber offers rideshare services. This means you can split your fare with other passengers. If they are Discovery Insure clients with Vitality drive and existing Uber users, they'll receive the 25% discount too.
Car hire Uber benefits
At claims stage, you can choose to exchange your car hire for R1 500 for the use of Uber services. If you have up to 60 days' car hire and your vehicle repair extends past 30 days, you will receive another R1 500.
If you have a valid vehicle claim and car hire cover, but are unable to drive a car following an accident due to injury, you will get an Uber DriveMe package to the value of R5 000 over 60 days as an alternative to the car hire benefit. You will have a choice of either car hire or the Uber package, but not both.
If you have car hire cover, you can only choose one of the three benefit options:
- Car hire benefit or
- Uber benefit or
- If you're unable to drive after an accident, the R5 000 Uber benefit.
These benefits are not available for motor glass claims.
