Small Business Insurance for Hospitality

Small business insurance shouldn’t be a cookie cutter approach – each industry has its nuances and specific requirements, including hospitality! And failure to pay close attention to the fine print could end up costing you thousands.

So, here’s what you need to know.

Hospitality Insurance Checklist

As standard, if you own or run a hospitality-based business you should consider the following insurance policies:

  • Public Liability
  • Property/Theft
  • Business Interruption
  • Machinery Breakdown incl Stock Loss
  • Motor Vehicle
  • Management Liability
  • Cyber Insurance

Hospitality Insurance Policies

Here are the four (4) main things that insurers will rate and determine your hospitality liability premium on:

  1. Annual turnover
  2. Number of staff in the business
  3. Number of seats available to patrons (the size of restaurant)
  4. Previous claims history

Hospitality Insurance Risk Factors

Don’t be surprised if, when looking for hospitality insurance, that insurers ask to see your policies and procedures on how you manage risk. This typically includes:

  • Commercial kitchen fire safety
  • Public and customer safety
  • Cash handling procedures
  • Physical and electronic security

EXPERT TIP: Having written documentation around risk management factors can significantly impact whether an insurer will cover you, and in some cases, what your premiums will end up being.
