Chauffeur Insurance Quotes

Chauffeur Insurance, sometimes called Executive Hire Insurance, is a specialist type of hire and reward insurance. This type of cover considers the unique risks that go hand-in-hand with carrying passengers in executive vehicles. Chauffeur Insurance is designed for higher-value, luxury vehicles and we can arrange cover for you on policies with drivers between 25 and 70.

We provide a range of cover at competitive rates for new startup Chauffeurs who operate one vehicle to established Chauffeur companies that operate large numbers of vehicles (Chauffeur Fleet).

Levels of Chauffeur Insurance Cover that we compare.

We can provide two different levels of cover for our chauffeur drivers


Comprehensive insurance is recommended to all chauffeur drivers as it will provide cover for them in all potential accident scenarios, including damage to their own vehicle.

Third-Party, Fire and Theft

Third-Party, Fire and Theft will cover a chauffeur driver if any damage is made to another vehicle or if another driver claims against them, plus it covers the cost of the vehicle should it be stolen or damaged by fire (minus any excess), however, this level of cover offers no accidental damage cover for the driver’s vehicle.

Third-Party Only

Third-Party Only is the lowest level of cover a chauffeur driver can get, and will cover the driver for damage to any other vehicle or third party,  in the event of a fault accident.
