Protect Yourself and Your Business with Taxi Business Insurance

With over 40 years’ experience, securing public liability cover for UK taxi drivers, we know what cab drivers need for an effective public liability insurance policy. Public liability insurance is an important part of any business which involves the public. Without the correct public liability taxi cover in place, you risk being held liable – both financially and legally – for any accidents or damage that your passengers may suffer while under your care.

Why Is Additional Public Liability Taxi Insurance Important?

Standard motor-trade or taxi insurance may not protect you legally if, for example, you regularly take young children to school. In this instance, by law you are responsible for the child’s well-being and safety, from the moment they get into your taxi until you see them safely through the school gates. This means, in the unfortunate event that a child was to be involved in an accident after getting out of your vehicle, you may still be liable for that particular accident. Public liability taxi insurance protects you and your business from any unforeseen circumstances in which you could be held liable for another’s well-being.

If you currently have, or are looking to take on, work that would benefit from public liability cover, it is your legal responsibility to take out public liability insurance for your taxi. This means you may require a public liability cover policy in addition to your standard taxi insurance. Regardless of whether you have any council contract work, in this era of public liability and compensation claims, it pays to be covered.
