Business Insurance for the Leisure and Hospitality Industry

The leisure and hospitality industry is a complex area that relies on consumer confidence, and likely to face constant demand to deliver quality, value for money, and innovation.

Whether you run a hotel or bed and breakfast, or your business is centred on serving food and drink, you need a business insurance solution that adequately covers the potential risks you face.

Public liability cover will help protect your business in case a customer suffers illness or injury as a result of your negligence, and employers liability cover in case a staff member has an accident or incident at work. You may be responsible for the building your business is located in and therefore need adequate cover for fire, flood, accidental or malicious damage, and theft. Having adequate stock to meet customer demand is crucial to the smooth running of your business, therefore you may need to make sure this is covered for loss, damage, or theft, including seasonal fluctuations in stock levels. If you keep money on the premises you may want cover for loss or theft, and business interruption cover can help get your business back up and running following an insured loss, including compensation for loss of earnings during a closure.

In addition, if you provide accommodation you have unique risks to protect the health and safety of those on your premises overnight, and any business that serves food and drink needs adequate cover in case customers suffer illness as a result of consuming your product.
