Other customers who have taken out taxi insurance have opted for one or more of the following optional extras:

Taxi Breakdown Cover
We offer a range of roadside assistance covers aimed at getting you back on the road at the scene of your breakdown. If the vehicle can't be fixed at the side of the road, you will be recovered to a local garage. Prices start from as little as £19.75 per year.

Excess Protection
Excess protection insurance provides you with an opportunity to safeguard yourself against the cost of your motor insurance excess, should you need to make a claim as a result of a fault accident.

Liability Insurance
Even a basic liability insurance policy is essential to avoid the possibility of putting your business in jeopardy. We understand this necessity, and we work with the nation's leading insurers to ensure that you get the perfect policy for you.

Your taxi insurance questions answered

Can I drive other vehicles if I take out comprehensive taxi insurance?
Sorry, no. Due to the circumstances under which taxis are used, and the significant difference in vehicle types, this extension is not available for taxi insurance policies.
Which types of vehicle can I cover?
If you are carrying passengers for hire or reward, we can provide taxi insurance cover for most types of vehicle. More specifically, we can provide minicab insurance, black cab insurance or minibus insurance – just let us know what taxi insurance quotes you need.
Can I use my taxi for social use as well as public or private hire?
Your taxi insurance policy will allow social, domestic and pleasure use in addition to hire and reward.
However, many local authorities forbid a plated vehicle to be used by an unregistered driver, so it’s always best to check first.
Do you offer short-term policies?
Currently all of our taxi insurance policies are for 12-month periods only.
Do I have to pay in full?
No. All of our taxi insurance policies are available with a handy monthly instalment option.
Within how long do I need to declare any previous claims or convictions?
We need to know about all previous claims within the last five years (whether your fault or not). All motoring offences within the last five years, or those still endorsed on your driving licence, must be disclosed when taking out your taxi insurance policy.

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.

Although the staff are very helpful, the menu driven telephone system and time spent waiting to be connected is not acceptable
Have phoned on several occasions and given up the last time I was disconnected after a 15 minute wait !

I been waiting for post but when phone last moment I know that I got cover note by email !

Being a taxi driver is a serious commitment. You have to invest in your vehicle as well as fuel, your license, keeping it on the road and keeping it nice and clean. And that’s before you spend endless hours working hard and dealing with people from all walks of life.

After all that, the last thing you want to do is get home and spend hours in front of a computer screen trying to compare taxi insurance deals (and cheap taxi insurance doesn’t mean it’s the best taxi insurance). But with Staveley Head, you only need to call our specialist taxi insurance team to make sure you’re getting the most competitive prices.

Or our online quote system can compare taxi insurance rates in minutes. And if we require any additional details, we’ll call you back as soon as we can.
