What We Offer

Taxi Direct offer a range of services to help our customers.


Private Hire

Private hire is when your passengers have pre-booked a taxi journey. Usually via a ride-hailing app or via the taxi office. Private hire drivers are not able to pick up passengers from a taxi rank.

Public Hire

Public hire drivers can work from the rank and pick passengers up from off the street, they can also carry passengers who have arranged pre-booked journeys via the taxi office or app such as Uber.

Executive Hire

Executive Hire Insurance can be complex, one of the reasons being that this could be interpreted as Chauffeur Insurance or Private Hire Insurance for prestige vehicles.



We have dedicated Private Hire insurance specialists to help you get the policy you need.
