As a taxi insurance broker, Patons Insurance does more than find good deals for customers.

We provide a personal service and support customers with taking out the right policy for their needs. Our 4.8 Stars, platinum Feefo award is a testament to how our existing customers feel about the service we provide.

Patons Insurance is a family business that was started by taxi drivers in Glasgow. With 65 years of first-hand experience of what matters to drivers, we know what is important to customers and we go out of our way to deliver a personal service that protects themselves and their business.

As well as finding the best policies from our panel of insurers for individual drivers looking for public hire insurance or private hire insurance, we also offer fleet insurance and cover for all professional drivers, from wedding cars and chauffeurs to HGV and delivery drivers.

Taxi trade

But looking after the taxi industry will always be at the heart of what we do, which is why our Partner with Patons scheme is ideal for taxi operators as well as drivers.

We are looking to form partnerships with taxi base operators and owners, who will receive £50 for every driver they refer, who takes out their taxi insurance through us.

To become a partner, operators just need to fill in a short form with their contact details and once agreed, they can begin referring drivers. The referral process is simple and uses a unique link that operators can share on their website, in newsletters or in a text or WhatsApp message.

All drivers need to do is click on the link and take out a taxi insurance policy with us, and the referral commission will be paid to the operator.

Peace of mind

As well as getting £50, operators are reassured with the knowledge that their drivers will be offered the right cover for their vehicle. We understand the unique challenges that come with being a taxi driver and operator and our dedicated staff offer a personal service to each customer.

We have access to a range of specialist insurers, as well as additional policies such as breakdown and public liability insurance to give each driver the best possible protection.

In addition to finding the right insurance at the right price for thousands of public hire, private hire and chauffeur drivers across England, Scotland and Wales, we have dedicated support teams who can help with any queries or changes to policies, as well as claims teams who will support you.

This is particularly important for operators when situations change, such as taking on extra vehicles or drivers, or for those looking to expand their business.
We also offer commercial property cover, which is ideal protection for taxi offices and bases, as well as business insurance, employers liability insurance, and business property insurance for owned premises.
