Types of Hire and Reward Insurance
The UK has only two different types of Taxi policy, both of which can be applied to a fleet if you are running or plan on running a taxi fleet:
- Public hire taxi insurance - this cover allows you to pick up customers on the street immediately without any pre-booking. As a black cab driver follow, both you and your vehicle represent one of the UK's most iconic figures; the hackney carriage - known the world over not only for their bold design but also their charismatic drivers... Be a smart driver too and speak to us about your public hire taxi insurance. We cover all cities in the UK, unlike many other insurers who cherry pick the major cities. We are as happy insuring a public hire taxi driver in London as we are in Preston or Chester.
- Private hire taxi insurance - this allows customers to be picked up when booked, typically through your taxi operator. This insurance is often referred to as mini cab insurance which does not allow you to simply pick up people from the street. We have a huge number of London minicab drivers who have purchased insurance through us on this basis. In most cases, peoples private hire taxis are central to their lives. Without it, many would not have a source of income and so it is imperative that you cover your vehicle with the correct private hire taxi insurance policy. Having the right cover in place means that should your private hire taxi get damaged or stolen, you will not lose out on this important source of income.
- Temporary taxi insurance - for those of you that wish to fit in your taxiing around other things going on in your life.
- Fleet taxi insurance - for your taxi company with 3 or more cars.
- Minibus insurance - ideal for carrying more than your standard fares worth of passengers.
- Public liability cover - this bolt on gives you the extra protection you need, especially for drivers doing work for the local council.
Both of the above types are available for drivers looking for comprehensive, third party fire and theft and third party only taxi insurance cover. This is also true of fleet insurance too.
What geographical areas do Acorn quote for?
We have insured many taxis in Liverpool (obviously as it's our hometown), London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Luton and many more - in fact, we've got policies that will cover pretty much any postcode in the UK. At this time, however, we can not provide cover in Ireland. Sorry about that.
