We offer insurance for hotels, bed and breakfasts and guesthouses and we recognise the similarities and also the differences of each.
If you own a hotel, bed and breakfast or guesthouse, there are risks from which you need to protect yourself, your staff and your guests. Without the correct insurance in place when something goes wrong, the costs of accidents or mistakes can be unbearable.
We can offer a range of covers so you can not only meet your basic legal requirements, but also cover other unforeseen possibilities, such as business interruption and loss of licence.
With cover designed specifically to meet the unique needs of the hospitality industry an insurance package will include all the essential cover for buildings, contents and liability to employees and the public.
Having many people in your premises means that accidents may occur so you need to be insured against accidents which are not their fault. Employer’s liability insurance is required by law so this must be included in your insurance policy. Public liability insurance is not a legal requirement but we recommend you have it to ensure that you do not have to pay out potentially large sums of money should a customer have an accident at you hotel, bed and breakfast or guesthouse.
Having the right insurance cover for your office is important and can potentially save you thousands of pounds in the event of a claim.
We understand that every business, large or small, is different so we offer policy options which can be tailored to the needs of your company.
