“If you want to drive for Postmates, you’re required to have the state-minimum liability insurance on your vehicle.
If you’re in the process of delivering an order and you get in an accident, Postmates will provide up to $1 million in liability coverage for both bodily injury and property damage to the other person. However, it provides no insurance for damage to your vehicle.
If you want to drive for them, you should ask your insurance company about getting a delivery driver insurance add-on. This will likely only cost a few extra dollars a month and provide more adequate protection.”

What kind of car insurance coverage should I get when renting through Turo?

As a teenager who just got my license, how much can I expect to pay for insurance in Connecticut?
I've had my learner's permit for two years and have been driving with my dad. I want to purchase insurance for a Mitsubishi 3000GT SL. How much will it cost? Will the fact that I've been driving for two years (even with a learner's permit) give me a better rate?
