I received last night the following message:

URGENT MESSAGE - your taxi insurance policy with Alpha Insurance is cancelled with immediate effect. Please contact Cover My Cab on 020 74467666 where we will be able to arrange alternative cover.

I am trying to contact them with all of their available numbers to find out what’s is going on; but all of their numbers are not available to talk to them. I have one year and half no claim discount.

I will tell you what is going on, right now you are not insured so you need to get your car off of the road.

When I say off the road that means it's now illegal for you to park your car on any public highway.

Leaving it on the road means you risk a fine, points on your licence and your car being seized.

Should any of you be stupid enough to risk it and get caught Uber will NOT allow any drivers with IN10 ( no insurance) points to work for them.

Wow.. that is not fair lol.. People paying 3-4k in one go and it all gone.

This is why financing is the best - IF you have low rate always pay monthly.

re-insure your car immediately with a big company like Aviva. After that chase the money from the bankrupt company.

No, he isn't, stop talking bollocks, the FSCS only covers claims it does not insure him, anyone that was with Alpha is NOT insured until they arrange new cover.

Any ideas about what happens with people who financed? do they still have to pay the monthly payments?

If I can give an advice always use what everyone use...Haven (Acorn) insurance. 70% of PH cars and almost all rental PCO use Haven and there is a reason why. I always used well-known insurance and never had issue with them, Also I never trusted those insurance that promise you big discount some are dodgy!!!

Some monthly payments are with another company like a loan not directly with the insurance so check

This as been on the cards over the last few years ,all these Uber’s crashed all over London , the consequences are insurance Companies paying out more money than they are receiving.

Betty - You uneducated cabbie, This is a Mutli-National Cooperation - Dealing in Billion's. Uber driver's are not their main target market but a sector probably less than 5% of their total revenue.

Don't talk sh1t unless you got back up
