Common Taxi Insurance Questions:
Why do I need taxi insurance?
If you drive a taxi or other For-Hire Vehicle (FHV), you legally need to have taxi insurance. Taxi insurance is designed to provide you with financial assistance should an accident or another incident occur. As a result, you won’t face financial setbacks throughout the recovery process.
What insurance do I need for a taxi?
The average taxi insurance policy can offer numerous benefits, each of which can apply to different loss scenarios. These include:
Liability Insurance: When an accident is deemed your fault, this coverage helps you pay for the damage you do to others (like other drivers) who weren’t in the car with you.
Bodily Injury Liability Coverage: This plan pays for third-party medical bills and sometimes for death benefits.
Property Damage Liability Coverage: This pays for damage to the other party’s property.
Collision Insurance: This covers damage to your own vehicle that you sustained in a wreck.
Comprehensive Insurance: This coverage pays for damage from nonaccident mishaps, such as weather damage, fires, theft, vandalism or similar accidents.
Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: If you get hurt in an accident, this coverage can pay for your medical bills. Sometimes, it will cover other losses, such as lost income.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Insurance: This insures you against damage caused by someone else who doesn’t have appropriate liability coverage. If you are the victim of a hit-and-run, for example, then this coverage can pay for your car’s damage.
Additionally, other policies and endorsements might help you expand your benefits, such as:
What coverage is required for taxi insurance?
Because your uses of vehicles are unique, you must customize your commercial auto plan to make it work specifically for you.
New York State law requires that motorists carry a minimum amount of liability insurance of:
$25,000 for bodily injury to one person,
$50,000 for bodily injury to all persons, and
$10,000 for property damage in any one accident.
Mandatory "no-fault" coverage of $50,000 is also required.
Many motorists carry higher liability limits and additional personal injury protection beyond these minimum benefits required by law. The law also requires all auto insurance policies to provide uninsured motorists coverage (for bodily injury), subject to the same minimums. In addition, SUM (Supplementary Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists) coverage can also be purchased, in amounts up to the bodily injury liability limits of an insured's own policy. An insurer must offer SUM limits of $250,000 per person per accident and $500,000 per accident ($250,000/$500,000) if a person has bodily injury liability limits of that amount or higher. Insurers may offer higher SUM limits if they wish.
Regardless of any coverage requirements, the benefits you will receive by investing in higher levels of coverage (even when it is optional) will ensure you have a high degree of protection available in the event of any particularly challenging vehicle mishap.
How much does taxi insurance cost?
Numerous factors can influence commercial auto insurance costs, including the types and amounts of coverage you buy, the location of your business, the value of the vehicles to be insured and your driving record.
Our agents are committed to working with you to optimize benefits in ways that will still keep them affordable, even as you build upon your coverage to ensure you receive the highest level of protection.
