IMPORTANT NOTICE: Ridesharing should not generate a profit
Please note that BlaBlaCar is intended to allow drivers to share their costs with passengers, without making a profit. By taking a large number of passengers at once, drivers could potentially make a profit from a journey. Therefore, the number of seats you can offer is limited.
We remind drivers that making a profit from their journey could mean that:
i) in case of an accident, and should drivers be found to be making a profit, their insurer could refuse to cover both driver and passengers, as normal insurance does not extend to the transport of passengers for profit,
ii) in case of a police check, and should drivers be found to be making a profit, they could face sanctions for not meeting the regulatory requirements related to the transport of passengers for profit.

Personal accident cover
