Third Party, Fire and Theft

As the name suggests a third party, fire and theft policy will only cover third parties in the event of an accident so the other parties vehicles, their passengers together with the passengers in your taxi.  Your taxi and associated damage will not be covered with this policy type.  Your taxi will be covered in the event of fire damage or it is stolen and never recovered.

Third Party

Third party taxi insurance offers the legal minimum insurance cover and will only protect other people and their vehicles in the event of an accident where you are found to be at fault.  This policy will not cover the damage to your taxi.  Many people believe this is the cheapest option when insuring your taxi, this is not always the case and it pays to shop around and find the best policy that meets your needs.
