Cutting the costs of Glasgow Taxi Insurance

Whilst cutting the cost of your Glasgow Taxi Insurance is possibly a priority for you, it often comes at a cost in terms of cover. However, there are some other things you can do to help reduce costs, depending on your insurer.

Dash Cam

More and more insurers are discounting policies for those with dash cams. Not only that, but those with CCTV installed inside the vehicle too to help with claims decisions.

Security

Things such as immobilisers fitted to your vehicle and parking your vehicle overnight in an area that is well lit, or even locked can help reduce the costs of taxi insurance.

Higher excess level

If, in the event of a claim, you could afford to pay more towards getting you back on the road, you could opt for a higher voluntary excess level. It would be prudent to make sure you can afford the voluntary and compulsory excesses together if you had to.
