Your taxi insurance questions answered

Can I drive other vehicles if I take out comprehensive taxi insurance?

Unfortunately, we can’t offer this due to the circumstances under which taxis are used. And because of the considerable difference in vehicle types.
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 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. Terms and conditions apply.
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.

TYPES OF TAXI INSURANCE

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.

 

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PUBLIC AND PRIVATE HIRE TAXI INSURANCE?

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.

We can help you get the private hire insurance you need for your taxi, at a competitive price.

 

WHAT OPTIONAL TAXI INSURANCE SHOULD I CONSIDER?

Because of the unpredictable nature of the job, it can be useful to take out optional taxi insurance coverage, such as:

  • Motor legal insurance: We know accidents can happen at any time. Protect yourself with up to £100,000 of motor legal cover including recovery of uninsured losses, personal injury cover and a guaranteed replacement vehicle regardless of fault.
  • Taxi breakdown insurance: We know your vehicle is your livelihood. We aim to get you back out on the road as quickly as possible. If repairs can’t be made at the roadside, we’ll work to get you to a local garage.
  • Excess protection: If you’re required to pay excess, such as if you’re hit by an uninsured driver or you’re at fault for an accident, you’ll be covered.
  • Public liability insurance: You interact with dozens of customers every week. Make sure you, your passengers, and your business are protected against motoring accidents and claims. Exclusions apply. Learn more about public liability insurance.

 

WHAT TYPES OF VEHICLES CAN I COVER WITH MY TAXI INSURANCE?

We provide taxi insurance for most licensed vehicles that carry passengers for hire or reward. This includes private hire taxicabs, such as Uber drivers and taxi fleets.

 

OTHER COVER YOU MAY BE INTERESTED IN

Chauffeur insurance: A range of coverage options specifically for chauffeurs and limousine drivers, along with extra coverage such as chauffeur and private hire breakdown cover.

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.
