Rider liability insurance in South Africa

When your account is activated, you are automatically registered for the Rider liability insurance cover. The insurance has been added to make sure that you and your riders are sufficiently covered in the event of an accident.

How much does the insurance cost?

The cost of the policy is R19 per active month, i.e. a month within which you have finished at least one trip on the platform. The sum is automatically deducted from your balance and is reflected in a monthly invoice.

The cost of the policy (R19) is reimbursed if you complete 20 or more trips within a month. The sum will be added to your balance as a bonus.

What does the insurance cover?

The policy covers only Bolt trips. If you do any private trips or operate on other ride-hailing platforms, you will need separate insurance to cover those rides.
