This will depend largely on whether your insurer has access to specialist hire-vehicles like plated taxi cabs - and also the type of cover you have.
The law entitles you to receive a suitable replacement for your vehicle in the event of an accident that is not your fault, but that does not necessarily mean your insurer will be able to provide one.
