We are pleased to announce that we are now the recommended insurance supplier of the United Cabbies Group.

As a result UCG members will receive preferential rates and a free additional benefit when they purchase one of our great value black cab policies.

Marketing Director Grant Georgiades commented,

It’s great to have established an official link up with one of the London black taxi trade’s leading unions. It came about after we held positive discussions with the UCG in regards to our proposal to tackle the issue of taxi insurance fraud. We’re looking forward to working on other projects together that will benefit their members.

Len Martin, UCG Chairman explained why Plan was selected,

We’ve appreciated their efforts to try and support London’s black taxi industry. The deal that they’ve put together for the UCG is another benefit to our membership in addition to all the campaigning they do on the trade’s behalf. Insurance is a significant overhead for owner drivers. So it’s a strong incentive for cabbies to sign up.

The United Cabbies Group was formed by Licensed London Taxi drivers who were concerned by the state that the taxi trade found itself in. As a democratically run organisation the UCG  operates under a ‘One badge – One vote’ system. Every member of its committee is an active Taxi driver and is passionate about achieving positive results for hard working cabbies.

Membership costs just £15 per month (which is fully tax deductible.) Any monies received is used to benefit the taxi trade by representing its best interests.

UCG membership also provides 24 hour comprehensive legal protection with accompanying policy document, membership card, rule book and a welcome gift pack as well as the latest offers from Plan on their insurance costs.
