Uber and AXA are happy to announce today the signing of a partnership in view of strengthening the protection of independent workers using Uber technology in France.

As part of this innovative partnership, the AXA Group, a world leader in insurance, will bring its experience in the protection of independent workers, notably on coverage of medical expenses, disability indemnities, and survivor benefits in case of an accident. For its part, Uber will offer a new protection for free that will enable these independent workers to work flexibly with peace of mind. This new system of protection is expected to be implemented as of autumn. At that time, more specific details on the offer will be provided.
