What is hospitality insurance?
Hospitality Insurance refers to a wide range of insurance solutions for companies involved in the travel, tourism or food and beverage industries.
Typically a package of hospitality insurance will involve some combination of the following types of coverage:
- Public liability insurance
- Employer’s liability
- Property Insurance
- Plant and machinery insurance
- Commercial vehicles insurance
Who needs hospitality insurance?
All types of bar, restaurant or accommodation business will require some form of insurance from AirBnB owners to international restaurant chains.
Anybody involved in welcoming the public onto their premises for accommodation, entertainment or refreshment is open to being claimed against if the guests (or employees) suffer harm, loss or injury.
Hospitality is unfortunately a highly litigious sector and the likelihood of experiencing a claim from a customer is high. Working with the right insurance partner can make all the difference to reducing your risk, controlling your costs and protecting the future of your business.
What does hospitality insurance cover?
As an employer, you must have employer’s liability insurance to cover the risk which may arise from injury in the workplace. There are very few employers in the UK who are exempt from this legal requirement.
As a public-facing business, you remain liable for loss, harm or damage suffered by any member of the public, a supplier or any other person on your premises or even when not on your premises if your negligence causes them some form of loss.
Most hospitality business owners will be well-versed in reducing risks such as slips and falls. However, other less foreseeable losses can also be mitigated with proper insurance:
- Accidents involving your commercial vehicles
- Customer data breaches or e-marketing errors
- Business interruption due to fire, flood or other natural disasters
- Non-payment of invoices due to client insolvency
- Employee disputes and tribunals
