Car2Go - Understand What You're Getting

Car2Go is a very interesting service.

Convenient. Cheaper than owning your own car, etc.

But what happens if you get into an accident while driving a Car2Go and hurt someone?

What type of insurance coverage does your Car2Go membership provide you with?

I'll tell you.

Section 13.1 ( page 13) of the Car2Go "terms and conditions" indicates that your membership provides:

" liability insurance coverage for bodily injury and property damage to a maximum limit of $100,000 per person/$300,000 per accident or such amount as car2go may elect to provide, in accordance with minimum statutory financial responsibility limits..."

In British Columbia the minimum liability coverage for bodily injury you can carry is $200,000.

So what does this mean to you?

If you're a Car2Go member and you injury someone in a car accident you may not have adequate insurance coverage.

And if you seriously injury one or more people in a car accident you might really be up the creek.

Am I saying Car2Go isn't a good service?

Absolutely not.

What I am saying is that you'd be taking a serious risk if you only relied on the third party liability coverage provided through your membership.
