Car Sharing

I notice with interest that Liberty Insurance now allow for car sharing within their private insurance document as follows:

CAR SHARING

You can accept payments as part of a car sharing arrangement for giving people lifts for social or similar purposes. We will not treat these payments as charging fares as part of a business of carrying passengers as long as:
a the vehicle is not built or adapted to carry more than eight passengers (not including the driver);
b the passengers are not being carried as part of a passenger-carrying business;
c the total contributions you receive for the journey do not provide a profit
d the number of passengers (including the driver) is not more than the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended limit

 

 

Doesn’t seem to open up the Taxi business to private operators but certainly does not close the issue down either
