Public hire taxi insurance is a more comprehensive policy than private hire cover. This is due to the nature of picking people up without a pre-booking process. You will need this type of robust taxi insurance if you have a public hire badge, if you operate outside a train station or within a city centre or if you are available to hire from the street.Get a Quote
Private hire insurance is specifically designed for those who take bookings in advance while on the move. Insurance of this kind covers the person who has booked the taxi while in transit.
If you’re an Uber driver you’ll need private hire taxi insurance as standard car insurance does not include the level of cover you need to operate legally. Uber takes no responsibility for the insurance a driver has and therefore it’s your obligation to find the right cover.
