What is taxi breakdown cover?
Taxi breakdown cover is a specialist type of breakdown cover that is designed for taxis and private hire vehicles that are used to carry passengers. If you are a taxi driver, we’re sure that you are well aware that downtime can be costly in terms of time and money.
Specialist taxi cover can help you and your taxi back on the road and back to doing what you do best.
Do you need taxi breakdown cover?
Taxis and private hire vehicles spend much more time on the roads than your standard vehicle, and this can increase their chance of breaking down. Taxis will therefore often require specialist business breakdown policies.
As a taxi driver, your vehicle is your business, which is why it is so important that you find the right level of protection to help keep your business moving in the event of a breakdown.
Private hire taxi breakdown cover
It’s important to remember that even if you are a private hire taxi driver, you still need and will benefit from breakdown cover. Private hire taxi breakdown cover includes all of the same aspects as regular taxi insurance, and it is just important to have.
Private taxi hire does include cover for Uber drivers, since from an insurance perspective they are private hire, even though Uber does not explicitly state this.
