What levels of cover does Zego offer?

Your level of cover determines how much protection you get from your policy. The greater your level of cover, the more your policy will cost. However, it’s important to make sure you’re protected for what matters to you.

We offer both Fully Comprehensive and Third Party Only Private Hire insurance, so you can get as much protection as you need to feel safe on the road.

How does Zego’s cover work?

When you set up a Private Hire insurance policy with Zego, you can choose to take out cover with or without Sense - the technology that powers our most intelligent policies.

When you take out a policy with Sense, you share your driving behaviour with us. The powerful data you share helps us to make a Sense policy cheaper than a similar policy without Sense.

If you work with Uber, we can also offer a different type of policy without Sense.

What else can be added to Zego’s Private Hire insurance?

We offer a range of optional extras for you to choose from, so you can get cover for what matters most. Choose between Breakdown Cover, No Claims Discount protection, Legal Expenses insurance and more to get the policy that’s right for you.
