Let our specialist team help find you cover
As a chauffeur, we understand that your insurance needs, like your vehicle, are very special indeed and are very different to other private hire drivers. With much of your work on contract hire, you'll always know where you're going and who you'll be
with - and with that comes lower risk.
Swinton's specialist taxi team can save you a lot of time and effort by comparing quotes from a panel of insurers to give you the lowest price we get back from them.
You also have the option of separate Taxi Liability which can be bought with your Taxi policy.

- 24-hour UK-based claims service
At Swinton, we understand that as a chauffeur, your vehicle and clientele are likely to be different to those of standard taxi drivers. That’s why we offer Chauffeur Insurance, to ensure you’re sufficiently covered when you’re driving your customers from A to B.
Whether you’re taking a bride to her wedding, or carrying executives to a big board meeting, we know your job as a chauffeur entails a lot of responsibility.
We also know that you will be driving an executive, high-spec vehicle, such as a BMW Seven Series or a Mercedes S Class, so ensuring you have the right cover for your needs is imperative.
Also, as a chauffeur, you’ll be driving more miles than a regular motorist, and spending more hours on the road. We know just how challenging it can be if your vehicle is out of action – not to mention how frustrating it can be for your high-status customers!
What’s the difference between Chauffeur Insurance and Private Hire Insurance?
As a chauffeur, you’re likely to be transporting customers, for example wedding guests, probably in a luxury vehicle. The main differences from Private Hire Insurance are:
- Usually, there will not be a two-way radio in a chauffeur vehicle
- Payments will be settled by an accounts invoice – no cash will be exchanged within the vehicle
- Chauffeur Insurance will only cover executive vehicles
