Canada is a tipping friendly country. We tip our waitresses/waiters, our baristas, our valets. It’s common practice to tip our taxi drivers. But what about an Uber driver? Are we expected to tip them? Is the tip included in the price?
With the blessing of Alberta's Superintendant of Insurance, Uber is back and its drivers will be properly insured. Uber announced their July 1 return to Edmonton today as new rules will allow for Intact's proposed new Ride Sharing Insurance coverage to become a reality under Alberta's SPF 9 insurance code.
Uber announced earlier this month that they are working with Intact Insurance to develop a new car insurance plan for ridesharing in Canada. Uber, who maintains that their Canadian rides are covered by $5 million in liability insurance, believes that this insurance plan will be the first of its kind in Canada.
