Taxi Insurance FAQs

What is the difference between a Public Hire and Private Hire Taxi?

There are two kinds of taxis in the UK – Public and Private Hire.

Public Hire Taxis are able to pick up passengers from the street, for example Black Cabs.

Private Hire taxis can only pick up pre-arranged passengers.

Why is taxi insurance more expensive than standard car insurance?

Taxi insurance is more expensive than standard car insurance because they are seen to be a higher risk. This is because they are on the roads more than a usual driver, so more likely to be in an accident. As a result they price the policies to reflect this.

Can I use my taxi for personal use?

Yes – this is possible to add to your policy. Speak to our advisers when getting a quote and they can make sure you are covered for personal use too.

Do I need public liability insurance as a taxi driver?

Public Liability Insurance is not a legal requirement for taxi drivers. However, it is strongly recommended. This is because it protects you if any damage occurs to third parties or their property where the liability lies with you, the taxi driver. This will help to protect you and your business should anything happen against any unexpected costs.

Public Liability Insurance shouldn’t be confused with Passenger Liability Insurance which only covers your customers while they are in the vehicle in the event of an accident or crash.

Do you offer taxi insurance for convicted drivers?

We cannot currently offer cover for a taxi to convicted drivers.
