Black cabs are as much a part of London as Big Ben and The Tube, and are world renowned for their design, the quality of service and of course the drivers who offer so much more than simply a lift from A to B.
Training to be a black cab driver takes years, and you have to pass a rigorous test before you are rewarded with the coveted Hackney Carriage Driver’s License.
Whether you are a working London cabbie, or own one of these delightful vehicles purely for personal use, we can find a policy catered to your own unique needs.
We understand just how stressful a job this can be; dealing with aggressive drivers, unwitting pedestrians and difficult customers day in day out. That is why we have gone to great lengths to ensure our partners can provide you with specialist black cab insurance and exactly the cover you want, with a payment plan that suits you and a 24/7 expert customer care service. If you do have an accident, we know you want to get back on the road and earning as quickly as possible, which is why you should seek out a policy which provides replacement vehicles and covers any rental costs you incur.
Due to the nature of the job and the fact you can pick people up from the roadside, coupled with the unusualness of the vehicle itself, and the higher than average mileage a black cab does, insurers often try to massively inflate the price of premiums. One way to help keep prices down is by customizing your policy so that you are only paying for the cover you need.
There are flexible payment systems available, either monthly, quarterly or annually depending on what works best for you.
Lots of people choose black cabs as their own personal vehicle, due to their size, reliability and unique look; Stephen Fry is perhaps the most famous example of a recreational black cab owner.
We know what you require from your insurance policy will be different to a working London black cab driver. A London cabbie is using his black cab to make a living, and cannot afford to be off the road any longer than is absolutely necessary.
