Taxi Fleet Insurance – 5 very important considerations

If you are searching for the best quality taxi fleet insurance at the lowest price, then the following information should come in useful.

By understanding what components a provider examines, you will be able to learn what modifications you can make to your taxi fleet management so that it develops into a better insurance possibility.

The cost of taxi fleet insurance is determined by the following factors;

The number of vehicles you wish to insure

The more vehicles you insure under your taxi fleet insurance policy, the more money you are likely to save. Having lots of taxis insured under different policies can be extremely costly and the administration can be hard work!

Engine kind and model of each vehicle

As with private car insurance, the larger the engine and the faster the taxi you drive, the more expensive your annual premium will be. The amount of passengers you carry will also increase taxi fleet insurance too. Companies transporting larger numbers may need to consider fleet insurance for PSV’s.

The driving experience & age of your employees

A taxi driver that is over thirty, relatively experienced and with a good driving history, is highly likely to save you money on your taxi fleet insurance. However, a reputable broker like insureTAXI Fleet will strive to find you the most competitive rates for your circumstances.

Where the taxi fleet vehicles are kept overnight

Taxis kept outside overnight encounter risks such as vandalism and theft. To reduce your insurance, make sure all your taxi fleet vehicles are stored under a shelter or in a garage.

Extra security features

Despite the initial investment, you are likely to pay less for your taxi fleet insurance if your vehicles are fitted with security features like immobilisers, security alarms, anti-thefts gadgets and tracking equipment. Cabbies operating in high crime areas should definitely seek more information on this.

Looking for the cheapest taxi fleet insurance?

Taxi fleet insurance doesn’t have to be expensive. Aside from the obvious of building up a descent track record and subsequent no claims discount, there are many ways to reduce your premium.

The experience of your drivers is one thing that determines the price of your policy. Experienced taxi drivers are much less likely to cause an accident and therefore providers will reward them with the cheapest taxi fleet insurance.  When it comes to recruitment, taking on a long serving cab driver who is familiar with your city (preferably holding a badge) always pays off.

Naming the drivers can also allow you to get cheaper taxi fleet insurance for your company. Most providers offer the cheapest rates to customers who reduce or restrict the amount of drivers on their policy.

Increasing voluntary excess is another way of keeping costs low. Even though this can reduce your annual premium significantly, always make sure you could realistically cover this sum in the event of a claim.

Ideally, we all want the cheapest taxi fleet insurance but this doesn’t mean we should have to compromise on cover. A reputable broker like insureTAXI fleet aim to give you the best of both worlds. We will compare the market on your behalf to bring you our cheapest taxi fleet insurance quotes whilst ensuring the policy you select meets all your requirements.

Our tailored packages can include;

  • Windscreen and glass cover
  • Protected no claims bonus
  • Complete accident management & legal expenses cover
  • Breakdown cover & roadside assistance
  • Replacement vehicles so you can carry on earning

Taxi fleet insurance rates softening

Here at insureTAXI Fleet we have noticed in the last 6 months a distinct softening of taxi fleet insurance rates.

Generally speaking (although dependent on area and claims history), underwriters are hungrier for business and willing to discount more (within reason) to win / retain the business.

Our fleet specialists have superb relationships with our panel of underwriters and are working with them daily to ensure we offer the most competitive rates and flexible fleet insurance polices for our valued customers.
