It is our understanding that Danish-based insurer, Alpha Insurance, has been declared bankrupt on 8th May 2018 and as a result all current Policyholders have been urged to seek new insurance cover immediately, given all existing cover has been terminated. We are unsure of the exact date this takes effect but we would urge any affected customer to arrange alternative cover without further delay.
Alpha Insurance provide Public and Private Hire insurance throughout the UK, predominantly under the J&M Insurance, Protector Policies, Cover My Cab and My Taxi brands.
For the latest information, please see our blog post on Alpha Insurance.
We would like to confirm that NONE of our customers are affected by this event, given no customers of Patons Insurance are covered by this insurer.
However, if you are an existing Alpha Insurance customer insured elsewhere and require assistance, then give us a call and we’ll do our best to get you back on the road.
