New integration expands Roamly's insurtech offerings, providing car sharing marketplaces competitive insurance protection

AUSTIN, Texas, May 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Roamly, the leading API-enabled digital insurance platform, today announced the launch of its proprietary Carshare Insurance product designed specifically for commercial fleet vehicle operators. Through Roamly Carshare, carsharing marketplace companies can cover the specific needs of carsharing users during both rental and non-rental periods, offering modernized insurance protection to reward car-sharers while also removing premiums for features they aren't using, thereby helping car-sharer's safeguard their profits.

The first integration of Roamly Carshare is currently live on Getaround, the world’s first connected car-sharing marketplace and its wholly-owned subsidiary for gig carsharing, HyreCar, where the product extends protection to their Power User communities.

The significance of this launch comes at a time when the global car sharing market is projected to reach $51.7B by 2030.

Roamly's commercial coverage is designed for individuals and fleet owners who carshare through rental platforms to protect their assets in between rentals — whether they're parked on the lot or being driven for routine maintenance, gas fill-ups, car washes, and more.

"From day one, Roamly was designed as an open API platform to power the global marketplace economy," said Jeff Cavins, Roamly's CEO & Founder. "The peer-to-peer car sharing market is growing rapidly across the globe, and we're proud to support this shift toward environmentally-friendly transportation and mobility-on-demand options."
