Our taxicab insurance guides will help you decide which is the best taxi insurance for you, providing in-depth advice on everything from private hire insurance for your minicab to your taxi insurance policy explained.
If you’re a private hire (mini cab) taxi driver, it’s important that you have the right level of insurance to make sure that you, your passengers and vehicle are all protected.
Public liability insurance is essential cover for anyone who deals with the general public, although you won’t usually find this type of cover as part of your taxi insurance policy.
This guide should provide you with all the information you may need when taking out a taxi insurance policy where named drivers will be driving your taxi.
Whether it’s on a school run, transporting holiday makers to the airport or taking groups of party goers into town, large taxi vehicles such as MPVs have a wide range of uses.

What is the difference between private and public hire taxi insurance?
We're not the kind of people to try and pull the wool over our customer's eyes. So, we use Feefo, an entirely independent third party company, to collect feedback on every policy we sell.
We value your feedback and will always act upon it. If you'd like to make a suggestion as to how we could improve our products or customer service please use our contact us form.

Third party only (TPO): This is the minimum cover required by law. This will cover third party liabilities in the event of an accident.
Third party, fire & theft (TPFT): The cover is the same as TPO but also for fire and theft of your vehicle.
Comprehensive: This provides the same as TPFT but also covers you and your vehicle.
Public hire taxi insurance is for public taxis, such as hackney carriages, which can be hailed in the street, hired from a taxi rank, or booked in advance.
Private hire taxi insurance is for private vehicles that can’t be flagged down and must be booked in advance, like Ubers, or cabs that work from a designated private taxi base.
Because of the difference between public hire and private hire services, each requires a different kind of coverage to ensure you and your passengers are protected. We can help you get the exact insurance you need for your public or private hire taxi, at a competitive price.
Because of the unpredictable nature of the job, it can be useful to take out optional taxi insurance coverage, such as:
We provide taxi insurance for most licensed vehicles that carry passengers for hire or reward. This includes both public and private hire taxicabs, such as Uber drivers, taxi fleets, black cabs, hackney cabs, and London taxis.

Minibus insurance: Coverage available for vehicles with 8-16 passenger seats. Protection for both business and personal use, along with extra options such as liability insurance.
Private hire insurance: For minicabs and taxis that are pre-booked, to ensure the vehicle, driver and passengers are protected.
