Taxi Owner Driver insurance

Every Taxi operator has to have insurance to protect themselves and others from the high costs involved if they have a collision.

The minimum a good Taxi insurance policy should be able to provide, would be:

  • Vehicle repairs that are fully guaranteed

  • Quickly deliver a replacement plated/equipped Taxi that is of a similar type to your own

  • Assistance with legal issues, such as the recovery of lost earnings and compensation for the driver if they are injured

This is fine for collisions where you are at-fault, but do you really want to add non-fault claims to your insurance record and have those claims potentially increase the cost of your insurance?

The advantages of keeping your non-fault claims separate from your Owner Driver Taxi insurance

Car Call have been providing independent non-fault claims assistance for Taxi operators of all sizes for more than a decade.

The reasons why our Taxi customers choose to resolve their accident claims independently using our service are shown below:-

  • They don’t want non-fault claims to increase the cost of their insurance

  • They don’t want to have to pay their excess up-front and wait to have it recovered back again

  • They want same day delivery of a replacement plated/equipped Taxi that is similar to their own

  • They want to have the option to choose who repairs their vehicle

  • They want the reassurance that they will get legal assistance with loss recovery and personal injury claims

  • They want the insurer responsible to cover all accident costs.

As you can see, it’s pretty obvious why they choose our service.

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.

We and our partners help thousands of people make independent accident claims. Our service enables motorists to get the help and assistance they need to resolve their accident related issues, with the costs being recovered directly from the at-fault driver on your behalf.

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 comparable 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.

Car Call and its partners will provide a comparable replacement vehicle as part of our service. This means we will endeavour to supply a hire-vehicle that similar to your own in terms of its type, make and engine size.

So whether you drive a small hatchback or a prestige sports car, we will look to provide a similar hire-vehicle that suits your needs.
