How to reduce the costs of taxi fleet running costs insurance

Providing insurance coverage for a large or small fleet of taxis is expensive. As such it is prudent to look at approaches to reducing costs. The good news is that hire for reward premium insurance costs can be reduced by taking some or all of the following steps

  • Any fleet that is serviced on a regular basis and maintained to a high standard will spend less time off the road. In reducing the number of breakdowns or road accidents your taxi fleet will be busy providing a paid service, rather that in a garage for repair.
  • Reduce both insurance and running costs by keeping to vehicles categories that are both cheap to buy and cheap to repair
  • Introduce limiters, this technology has been around for a long time and involves adding a governor to prevent speeding. This has many obvious advantages. However, it is not widely used within the taxi industry. Rejection by the taxi drivers is normally cited as the reason for the low uptake.   
  • Driver training should be ongoing. Well trained drivers are more confident and knowledgeable and are less likely to be involved in driving accidents.  Training will ensure they understand the important of daily safety checks and other measures to reduce risk. They can also carry out daily safety checks at the start of their shift.
  • Select only drivers with a clean record and over 25. These two factors will help in reducing your annual or monthly policy costs. Incidentally annual payments should also reduce the cost of your premium. For more details on hire for reward and private hire best practice please read this governmental document
