What is credit hire?
Credit hire is the supply of a like-for-like replacement hire vehicle on a credit basis to the non fault vehicle owner following a non-fault accident.
Arranging credit hire
In simple terms, credit hire is offered when there is no doubt as to liability or where we are confident that the circumstances of the claim mean that we will be able to recover the cost of the taxi supplied.
If the vehicle is safe and drivable the hire will only be for the period during which repairs are actually being undertaken. In these instances, we liase closely with the taxi driver and the vehicle repairer to ensure that the credit hire is provided seamlessly alongside the repairs, making sure that the driver is able to keep on working.
Recovery of Costs
CCC usually recover the costs of hire from the at-fault driver’s insurer once the claim is settled. Credit hire may be available to any non-fault vehicle owner whatever their own insurance status – comprehensively insured or third party insured. The claim is against the insurer of the at-fault third party driver.
Arrangements are in place between the Association of British Insurers and credit hire companies, including CCC, for the provision of replacement vehicles to innocent parties, this agreement is known as The Credit Hire Protocol or General Terms of Agreement (GTA), which is a voluntary non-binding agreement. CCC is party to this arrangement and is a Tier 1 credit hire provider.
