Taxi & Private Hire Breakdown Cover

What is taxi breakdown cover?

Taxi Breakdown Cover is specialist breakdown cover designed for taxis or private hire vehicles that are used to carry passengers. Any taxi driver will know vehicle downtime can be costly in terms of both time and money. Specialised taxi breakdown cover can help get you, your taxi and your passengers back on the road.

Managing your taxi fleet

Your drivers will build up high mileage and often drive during rush hour traffic. Part of successfully managing your taxi fleet is having a responsive breakdown service on hand, so drivers can get moving again as quickly as possible if they do have a problem at the roadside.

Spending more time on the road means you can pick up more passengers and increase your profits. But it also increases the chances of your taxi breaking down. You can rely on our expert Patrols and their state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to do everything possible to fix your vehicle at the roadside if you break down.

Often taxis and private hire vehicles spend more time on the road than most other vehicles, and this can increase these vehicles' chance of a break down. Taxis and private hire vehicles often require specialist business breakdown policies, and not all providers will offer these. As a taxi or private hire vehicle driver, your vehicle is your business, finding the right cover can help you keep your business moving even in the event of a break down. 

With RAC Taxi breakdown cover, you can choose between Roadside and At Home cover only, or Roadside, Recovery and At Home. By adding Recovery you can have complete peace of mind that if we can't fix your vehicle at the roadside, we'll tow it, you and your passengers anywhere in the UK.
