Why taxi insurance?

There are two main types: private and public hire. Private hire relates to cars that are restricted to pre-booking only and cannot use taxi ranks. Public hire taxi insurance allows the driver to collect passengers at the side of the road and display a taxi sign on the top of the car.

In order to save money, drivers should try to use a car from a low insurance group, have minimal convictions on their licence and build up as much no claims bonus as possible. Taxi drivers should also consider public liability insurance as they will be transporting public persons and therefore subject to personal injury claims.
