Chauffeur Insurance

Ready to make a difference

Comprehensive coverage. Personal service

We offer chauffeurs and executive private hire drivers comprehensive insurance cover at a competitive price. 

We have delegated authority with an A-rated insurer, which means we have the ability to underwrite your policy in-house. This allows us to arrange cover quickly, getting you on the road faster.

Our chauffeur insurance specialists have extensive industry knowledge and always provide a personal level of service.

Should you need to make a claim, you will have access to a dedicated claims handler, who will work hard to get you back on the road as quickly as possible.
