How much Insurance do you need and what will it cost?
According to the Illinois State Vehicle Code, for-hire, limo businesses are required to have Illinois limo insurance. So operating a transportation business, it is important to establish a Corporation or LLC. Once you’ve created a business name, knowing what coverages to look for should be taken into consideration. At minimum, you will need a policy with Auto Liability Illinois limo insurance.
Depending on the seating capacity of your vehicles, the limit of insurance you need varies.
Below is a quick guide to the minimum auto liability limits you would need for your Illinois limo insurance policy:
For-hire passenger vehicles carrying 9 or less people: $250,000/$250,000/$50,000 or $300 CSL
- 10-13: B.I. $1,000,000; P.D. $100,000
- 14-20: B.I. $1,500,000; P.D. $100,000

With newer, more luxury type vehicles you may want or need to protect your vehicle with Physical Damage coverage (also known as Comprehensive/Collision coverage). This type of Illinois limo insurance would cover actual damage to your own vehicle regardless of fault (remember, auto liability only pays for damage to someone else’s vehicles or property and any people you harm, other than yourself/the driver). Physical Damage coverage covers other types of accidents outside of colliding with another vehicle, such as theft, fire, smoke & wind damage. Also, depending on who you contract with, you might need a General Liability policy which protects your limo business against losses that occur outside of an automobile accident.
Illinois Limo insurance is a specialized industry and not just any insurance broker will do. When looking for the best limo insurance rates, working with an experienced broker will allow you to find the best Illinois limo insurance prices.
