Insurance For Manchester Taxis
Outside of London, Manchester has the highest number of licensed taxi drivers with approximately 14,000 licensed vehicles, second only to the West Midlands with 21,000. This is perhaps why there are at least 16 Manchester taxi insurance brokers in the city.
With so much choice when it comes to picking a Manchester taxi insurance broker, who do you go to? You may decide to try a handful of taxi insurance providers and gather quotes manually or you may try just one broker and take your chances. However, neither of these are good solutions as they’ll potentially cost you unnecessary time, money or both.

How Does Taxi Insurance Work?
Just like car insurance, a taxi insurance policy comes with three main options, namely third party only, third party, fire and theft and comprehensive.
Third Party Only – the minimum level of insurance legally required. In the event of an at fault accident, third party insurance will cover the cost of any damage to a third party and their vehicle.
Third Party, Fire and Theft – covering the above as well as any damage to your taxi as a result of theft or fire.
Fully Comprehensive – the highest level of cover, but not necessarily the most expensive, also covers the cost of repairing or replacing your taxi.
As noted above, fully comprehensive insurance is often assumed to be the most expensive insurance of the three options available, however this is often not the case so do not immediately dismiss fully comp cover as you may just find that it offers the most protection at the best price. Equally, if you were to have an accident deemed to be your fault and you do not have fully comprehensive insurance for your cab, you have to think whether you could afford to replace/repair it – after all your taxi is your source of income.
