Taxi Breakdown Cover

In the event of a breakdown, make sure you are back on the road and back to business as quick as possible.

Keeping you on the road.

Staying on the road is essential to being a taxi driver. If you can’t drive your taxi, you can’t pick up fares, which means you can’t make any money. So, breaking down is not only inconvenient, but it can be a huge financial hit. Taking out breakdown insurance will give you peace of mind whilst out on the road. 

Depending on the level of cover that you take, you can be protected against both mechanical and electrical breakdowns, which is handy if you’re in a shiny, new electric taxi. The policy can also cover misfueling, losing your keys, and flat batteries. 

Breakdown insurance can offer roadside assistance to get you back to work as quickly as possible. If the mechanic can’t get you going again at the side of the road, you could be covered to be taken to a local garage. If the garage can’t fix your car on the same day, you and your passengers could be provided with onward travel to your destination. We also offer nationwide recovery and home assistance, making sure that you and your passengers are covered from your front door to the end of your longest fare. 

You can take out our breakdown insurance with or without taking out one of our taxi insurance policies. For added flexibility you can pay all in one go, or if you prefer you can pay monthly (additional charges may apply).

My first application for taxi driver insurance and Joel made the process quick, simple and worthwhile for me. She has a great phone manner and it really was a pleasure to deal with her. She gives me the best price as its my first time purchasing be a taxi driver. Thank you very much 🙏🙏
I have just taken out my first taxi insurance with insure and must say a massive thank you to Zak Velasco He is a credit to the company and to be totally honest I probably wouldn't of used Insure if it wasn't for Zak. From day one he was brilliant and answered any questions I had and completely put me at ease. So to the Insure bosses Zak is brilliant at his job and deserves a pay rise I will be recommending all my taxi mates (I have loads lol 😆) To take the taxi insurance out with Insure and that's all because of Zak 10 out of 10 for me.

Private Hire

Public Hire



If you operate a taxi business or own a private or public hire vehicle, having breakdown cover for your taxis is vital to ensure the smooth running of your business.

Often taxis and private hire vehicles spend more time on the roads in comparison to other cars and motor vehicles. Therefore, this can increase the vehicles’ chance of a breakdown.
