What is Public Hire taxi insurance?
General taxi insurance is often what we call public hire insurance. This is the type of insurance required for taxis that are hailed in the street, rather than by prior arrangement. As a taxi vehicle, which is licensed by the Local Authority, you need to be able to prove that you have the correct taxi insurance cover and documentation. Public hire vehicles are also sometimes known as black cabs or hackney cabs, and the same public hire insurance applies to them.
Some of the main risks for public hire taxis are:
- Risk of damage by customers to your taxi (third party insurance will cover this)
- Risk of theft and fire, which will usually be added to public hire taxi insurance policies
