A Comprehensive Hotel Business Insurance Solution

Our business insurance for hotels includes:

Public liability insurance

To give you financial peace of mind in case a member of the public is injured or their property is damaged while on your premises.

Employers liability insurance

If you employ staff at your hotel, you’re legally required to have employers liability insurance in case they make a claim for injury or illness while working for you.

Contents insurance

Contents insurance covers all the fixtures and fittings you’ve purchased to make your hotel a comfortable place to stay, such as furniture, lamps, decorations, bathroom and kitchen fittings, etc. You should also include guests’ contents so their belongings are covered in the event of fire, flood, or theft.

Business interruption

If your hotel is unable to fully operate due to repairs or if a supplier goes out of business, business interruption will help to reimburse you for loss of income and cover your overheads.

Buildings cover

Your building is your most expensive asset – without it you have no business – so you need cover in case of fire, theft, flood, or accidental damage.

Financial cover

To protect money on your premises, including money kept in a safe.

There are also a number of optional covers you can include, including subsidence, legal expenses, goods in transit, tenants improvements, and terrorism.

HOW CAN I PAY FOR MY POLICY?

We have flexible payment options like monthly direct debits, however if you wish to pay up front you can use credit/debit cards, BACS, and American Express.

WHAT IF MY INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS CHANGE DURING MY POLICY TERM?

If something about your business or property changes, you may need to amend your policy. We can make the changes over the phone and update your cover as necessary. For example, if you wanted to fit an ATM machine in your shop, you should call us to check how it affects your insurance policy. It is always worth calling to check how changes to your business might affect your cover. Some alterations may increase your risk factors and if you have to make a claim, you might have voided your policy by not informing us of changes.

I HAVE PREVIOUSLY CLAIMED, CAN YOU STILL COVER ME?

Having a previous clam doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t be covered. New policies are done on a case-by-case basis, therefore please call us on 0330 134 4600 to discuss your circumstances.
