However a PH picking up without a booking is uninsured no matter where they pick up from.

How many times do I hear this. The vehicle is still insured for 3rd party liabilities.

On reflection the PH (as in vehicle) isn't insured, a punter or third party is, but the vehicle and driver are not.

That is how it should be expressed. Although it is quite a bit for a Council to put on the stickers that PH vehicles display that just say "not pre booked - not insured".

Last thing I will say about insurance on this thread, as it's not really pertinent to the thread, is that the issue only really arises when other drivers get it wrong when they talk to punters.

If another driver says 'don't get into that PH without pre-booking as the car isn't insured', then that's correct.

If another driver says 'don't get into that PH without pre-booking as you aren't insured', then that's not correct.

And if another driver says don’t get into that PH without pre- booking because that would be illegal?
