Do I Need Hotel Insurance?
If you are a part of the hospitality industry, it is likely that you made a huge investment to establish your hotel or guest house. It is a good idea to protect your investment with the right hotel insurance policy.
Accommodation-related businesses such as motels, inns and guest houses face various unique risks. That is because public dealing is a significant aspect of hotel management. Hotels must deal with clients or guests, visitors, employees, internees and other members of the public on a daily basis.
As a hotel owner, you are responsible for the safety and well-being of everyone, including people who work for you, people you are catering to and even visitors. You could be held liable if a visitor suffers an injury while on your premise or if a staff member has a workplace accident.
Claims and lawsuits can cost your business dearly, disrupt your operations and reduce your turnover significantly. Hotel insurance packages protect your investment by covering the costs associated with lawsuits. That is why hotel and guest house insurance is nothing short of a staple if you are in the hospitality sector.
What is Hotel Insurance?
Hotel and guest house insurance is a special type of insurance that is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of hotels and guest houses. Hotel and guest house insurance packages consist of combined covers that financially protect accommodation-related businesses against claims and pre-insured events like fire and flood.
At IC Insurance, we believe that no two guest houses are the same. The risk a hotel faces depends on various factors like the amenities available on-premise, guest house size and the number of employees. Different hotels and guest houses face different risks and require different levels of cover.
That is why we reject the one-size-fits-all approach to hotel and guest house insurance. Instead, IC brokers will identify the specific risks your hotel faces and create a personalised insurance plan that caters to them.
