Vulindlela Underwriting Managers (Pty) LTD (VUM)
Company Background:
Vulindlela Underwriting Managers (Pty) LTD (VUM) was established in October 2006 after the need for another committed Taxi Insurance Provider was identified. Santam Limited is the underwriter and was involved in the formation of the company
To provide affordable and sustainable insurance to Owners of Taxis, while understanding the unique needs of the Taxi Industry and the Community they serve.
BEE Focus:
12.5% of VUM shareholding is held by Morweng (Pty) Ltd. A further 20% has been designated to be held by the black Taxi Industry in a broad based structure. The aim is to have at least 35%, but possibly 40% BEE shareholding by the end of 2008.
VUM insures Minibus, Midibus and Sedan type Taxis. It is a requirement for these vehicles that the Owner is a current member of a registered Taxi Association.
VUM also insures Metered Taxis that do not need to conform to the above requirement, but the minimum fleet size for this is 10 vehicles.

The above Taxis are insured on a Comprehensive, Third Party only, or TPF&T basis.

The following extensions apply to vehicles insured on a Comprehensive basis only:

  • Passenger Liability;
  • Personal Accident for Driver and Passengers;
  • Fixed Expenses Cover;
  • Sound Equipment;
Zuzimali Cash Back Benefit:

  • This benefit is automatically included to reward Taxi Owners who do not claim;
  • 10% of Comprehensive Premiums paid, less Broker Commission, will be refunded after a 24 month period of no claims. NB: this is per vehicle, not per policy, so a fleet owner is almost guaranteed a Cash Back payment.
  • This will be in the form of either a Value Voucher to purchase new tyres, brakes or shocks at a national fitment centre, or a Cash payment, it is the client’s choice.
