Cargo and parcel insurance

How does insurance work for “Cargo”, “Delivery” and “Courier” service classes?

Your property is insured from when the driver or courier arrives (taps Arrived) to when they complete cargo transport or delivery (driver or courier taps Finish). If the user cancels their request, the insurance is no longer valid.

If you ordered a vehicle with cargo handlers as part of the Yandex Go “Cargo” service class, the insurance also covers loading and unloading.

Note that in the “Cargo” service class, cargo transport is carried out by Yandex.Taxi partners under a vehicle charter contract strictly in your presence.

Insurance coverage

Insurance covers the damage, destruction or loss of the cargo or parcel. Not all cargo types are covered.

Insurance price
