What is Public Hire insurance?

Public hire insurance is for drivers who are licensed to pick up customers at a rank, on the street or by being pre-booked.

Public Hire drivers could store cash in their vehicle which would need insuring. They are also more likely to be driven at antisocial hours. Vehicles might have been modified to become accessible. All these factors mean that a specific public hire policy is required.

Who needs Public Hire Insurance?

If you work on the ranks and pick up customers who have not pre-booked their journey with you, you need tailored public hire insurance.
