What is Taxi Insurance?
Taxi insurance is a complete policy that protects drivers and business owners from the risks of operating as a taxi. Being a taxi driver can be risky business. Taxis transport a higher number of passengers than a standard car. They work unsociable hours. Do a very high mileage and work in rush hours, often in city centres. These factors can all contribute to more costly insurance cover than a standard car policy.

Who Needs Taxi Insurance?
If you have three or more vehicles and operate a taxi business, then purchasing taxi insurance is the ideal situation for you. It doesn’t matter what type of vehicles you have; the cover will be solid. We provide insurance for:
Public Hire taxi Companies: These are taxis that do not require pre-booking. You can hail them in the street, so they will require a different insurance coverage than private hire taxis. The most recognisable type of public hire taxi vehicle is the traditional black cab or hackney carriages. These usually have a ‘taxi’ sign on top of the vehicle.
Private Hire Taxi Companies: On the other side, you have Private hire taxi insurance. These vehicles have to be pre-booked by the customer. They do not display a ‘taxi’ sign (although vehicle advertising signage is common) and you cannot hail a private hire taxi on the street.
Taxi Company Insurance: We can also provide low-cost insurance that covers all of your fleet, cars, drivers, liabilities, taxi office, stock, and more when you build a bespoke taxi company insurance via our commercial combined policy.
Types of Taxi Insurance
Third-party only: This is the minimum level of insurance required by law. This will cover third-party liabilities in the event of an accident.
Third-party, fire & theft: This offers the same level of insurance Third Party Only, but also covered things like fire or the theft of your vehicle.
Comprehensive: This provides the same level of protection as Third Party Fire & Theft, but it will also cover you and your vehicle in the event of an accident, such as hospital fees or replacement of a vehicle.
What are the benefits of Taxi Insurance?
Security: When you take out insurance, the risks associated with being a taxi are dramatically reduced. That’s got to be great news for any driver or a business owner.
Save money: When you insure all of your vehicles under one taxi insurance policy you can make big savings. As you gain claim-free years, you will see your premium fall and save you even more money.
Less hassle: Ensuring your whole business under one taxi company insurance policy makes everything easier and faster to deal with. You deal with one company, one claims number, and one person in most cases, saving time, hassle and money!
