What is taxi fleet insurance?
Taxi fleet insurance provides cover for multiple vehicles under one policy. It can be renewed annually and includes cover for as many vehicles as you require. You can add or remove vehicles throughout the year and still receive pro-rata coverage. Having all your vehicles insured through the same company also offers financial incentives.
What is the minimum number of vehicles I need to qualify?
With taxi fleets, it's not just about the vehicle—it's about the drivers and passengers you transport. That's why we offer a variety of coverage options for fleets of 3 to 500 vehicles, so you can get exactly what you need from our taxi fleet insurance. From comprehensive physical damage coverage to public liability protection, we've got an option for any size taxi fleet so that your business is always protected.
What types of taxi fleet insurance are available?
There are three levels of protection for your business and drivers:
- Third-party only (TPO)
If an accident occurs, this coverage covers all third-party liabilities. Vehicle damage caused by your negligence is not covered by this policy.
- Third-party, fire and theft (TPFT)
In addition to TPO, this insurance provides fire and theft coverage.
The most popular level of taxi fleet insurance available. As well as the above protection, it provides coverage for any accidental damage to your vehicle.
With our comprehensive policy, you can be sure that your drivers are protected while they're working—and that you'll be covered if they're in an accident. Plus if you find yourself in the unfortunate event that one of your taxis is stolen or vandalised, we’ll get you up and running again with ease.
Your drivers are your most important assets, so make sure they have the right coverage when they need it most.
How much does taxi fleet insurance cost?
It is difficult to estimate your insurance premium since each quote is tailored to your specific business needs.
However, to help you understand what effects the cost it is important to know that we will consider a number of factors, including:
- The number of vehicles that you own and operate
- Your type of vehicle
- The nature of your business
- The history of your trading
- Age, experience, and background of the driver
- Your location
How can I save money on my fleet insurance?
Besides saving time and administration by managing only one fleet taxi insurance policy, there are other ways to save money:
- Limit the age of drivers to over 25.
- Ensure that your policy is paid annually.
- Consider installing speed limiters.
- Install sufficient security measures in taxis, such as immobilisers and alarms.
- Consider bundling your taxi fleet insurance with commercial and breakdown coverage.
- Consider a limited mileage policy if this is appropriate for your business.
- Be careful when choosing your taxi fleet. Taxis with low emissions are cheaper to insure.
