Lost income after an accident in your Uber Taxi


As an Uber Taxi driver you will need your vehicle to be available 24/7 to operate your business. So if you lose work due to the actions of a careless driver in an accident, you will need to get this money back.

If you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault, we can independently help you recover your lost income, as well as resolve your accident repairs and provide a like-for-like replacement plated private hire Taxi.


Why avoid a non-fault insurance claim?

Making any type of claim on your Taxi’s insurance will inevitably mean an increase in the annual cost of your insurance.

Our independent accident assistance enables you to keep the number of claims on your own insurance policy to the minimum and avoid these increases.

As we will be resolving your accident issues instead of your insurer, it also means you will have no excess to pay.


How much will this cost me?

We operate completely independently of any insurer, which means we and our partners recover the costs associated with your accident directly from the at-fault drivers insurer.

No need to claim on your insurance

Anyone who has been involved in a road accident has the right to choose who repairs their vehicle. If you were responsible for the accident you were involved in, the company that insures your vehicle would normally deal with your accident claim.

However if you were not at-fault for the accident, you can choose to either claim on your own insurance policy or make a claim independently of your insurer. To find out more call 02392 484 244 and we will be happy to help.

No excess to pay

Unfortunately even if an accident was not your fault, your insurer will almost certainly require you to pay your excess before any repair is started on your car.

This money should of course be recovered by an insurer at a later date, but with our service - you do not have to pay it at all.

By using our independent claims service, you are not making a claim on your insurance policy and so you will have no excess to pay.

Receive a like-for-like replacement hire vehicle

Not all insurance policies will include a replacement hire-car for you to use if yours is damaged and unroadworthy. In fact it is typically an 'optional extra' on your policy.

Other policies may offer a 'courtesy car' but this is often just a 'basic' saloon or hatchback which may not be suitable for your needs.
