US laws vary by state, but in general you will be required to have a minimum of liability insurance. I'm not sure exactly how to get US liability insurance for a foreign vehicle, but I would check with the major insurance carriers (GEICO, Progressive, State Farm, etc) I know that the US allows Mexican vehicles, but I don't know the procedure. I don't know ...

Travel health insurance is not mandatory for people who do not need a visa to enter the Schengen area (including people from annex II countries like Brazil and people from other countries who hold a residence permit from a Schengen country). The travel medical insurance requirement is defined in article 15 of the Schengen Visa code and then mentioned again ...

The French embassy site in Brazil in it's portuguese version states: All foreigners, required or not to obtain a short stay visa, who wish to enter France must have a 30.000 Euros health insurance that covers all Schengen territory."

As a Brazilian citizen you don't need a Schengen visa (see Regulation 539/2001) and therefore don't need to prove you are insured to enter the Schengen area.

In Germany and Austria the drivers insurance will always(1) cover you, no matter if the driver is making profit from the ride or not. I guess this will be similar in other EU countries, though the amount of cover might differ.

I can comment a bit on the other side of the equation, namely what drivers see when offering a ride on the website. But before that note that Rome2rio's estimate apparently only covers the price of petrol whereas Blablacar's computations are based on a total costs estimate including depreciation, maintenance, insurance, etc. That's a huge difference. ...

There will be requirements re drivers licence that he must meet (not only will he need to have one but will probably need ...
