Many people become a taxi driver and this can either be as their main profession or to make some extra money on the side as they can easily work nights and weekends. Indeed, with the invention and accessibility of satellite navigation systems it is not even a requirement that you know the area that you are working in off by heart and many people simply consult their sat nav to take them to a destination but it is important that you are properly insured though.
Just your average vehicle and car insurance is not enough to legally allow you to carry people around for business and you will need a special kind of insurance that allows you to do this and remain insured. Taxi insurance is used to extend the insurance policy to the driver of the vehicle but also to the passengers as well as it will be your insurance that will ultimately be held liable should anything go wrong. Taxi insurance is higher than normal vehicle insurance for a couple of reasons; firstly you are insuring the people that you are carrying around in your vehicle and also you car is likely to be on the road for a much longer period of time than a private car and therefore the possibility of an accident – even if you are a very safe and careful driver – is increased.
