The Taxi Insurance Insurance Specialists

Taxi Insurance

Hail us for a 'fare' deal on your taxi insurance!

If you're a public or private hire taxi driver then affordable minicab or taxi insurance is essential.

You need choose your cover with care.

So when you see a cheap taxi insurance quote, check the detail.

Make sure it provides the cover you need because not all taxi and minicab insurance is the same.

"Policy only" cover is typically the cheapest taxi insurance. This is because it offers limited cover.

A "named driver" policy will specifically cover you as a taxi or minicab driver.

There is also "any driver" insurance which will cover any legally qualified taxi driver to drive your taxi.*

Taxi insurance benefits

Watch out too for benefits that might make your life easier.

These could include things like flexible payment schemes which let you spread the cost of cover.**

We'll take our time - with no meter running! - to make sure we know what you need and want before steering you through the policies offered by our panel of insurers,*** to help you find the most appropriate and effective taxi insurance available.

Very professional approach by Joe who took my call. I was concerned over an email I’d had inviting me to click on a link. He understood and we sorted everything out. Good people for customer service which is sadly lacking these days by other companies. Will use Principal again. Thanks
