Being a private hire (aka minicab) or a taxi driver isn’t easy. Long hours spent in traffic jams. Drunk and demanding customers and no fixed working hours… then the commercial taxi or minicab car insurance which often cost double or more what average ‘John Smith’ pays.

So what to do save some money and to find that cheap minicab insurance?

I have recently came accross a great resource for taxi and minicab drivers registered with the PCO London looking to renew their car insurance policies. The website is called Cheap Minicab Insurance and provides information dedicated to (mainly) London drivers, both hackney carriage licensed taxi and private hire (ie. minicab). There are companies listed there as well as a forum- a discussion board (however it looks pretty empty to me).

I wish there was a comparison website which would give an instant quote after filling in your details, but there isn’t at the moment. Or perhaps you know one and if you do share it with us please.
