Most people still think of Seat as being a Spanish company, even though the overall ownership of the company is in the hands of the Volkswagen Group. This has brought some changes to the way Seat operates and the pricing of their cars now sit firmly in line with that of the Volkswagen Group. There is still a great deal to be had on Seat cars though and this is why many taxi drivers consider them as their number one choice.
Even from before launch, the Seat Exeo was being tipped as a Saloon taxi and that has panned out. The style of the car is not dissimilar to the Ford Mondeo or Renault Laguna, both of which are firm favourites amongst taxi drivers. The Exeo is spacious and offers enough luggage room for airport passengers.
The Alhamabra is a comfortable 7 seater
The Seat Alhambra has also been known to be used as a taxi, with the S specification proving very popular amongst the taxi community. This is a rather spacious vehicle, comfortably sitting 7 with the 2010 model being more spacious than previous models. Sliding doors and increased safety features has seen this car used by a number of car fleets to bolster their increased capacity range.
Do not cut back on Seat taxi insurance
Whatever range or make of car is used for a taxi company or driver, it is essential to have taxi insurance. One of the most important reasons for having this insurance is to ensure that if any claims are made against a taxi driver, for whatever reason, they are adequately covered. Personal indemnity insurance is becoming essential for all drivers and should be considered a standard part of their insurance policy.
Rising costs are forcing many taxi drivers to look to make savings wherever they can but there is no sense in trying to make savings by cutting back on insurance policies. The overall impact or cost that may occur through not having adequate insurance can be extremely damaging.
