Boardwalk’s Hotel Insurance Provides Valuable Protection 4.33/5 (86.67%) 12 votes

Hotels and motels are an integral part of the service industry, providing a comfortable, safe place to rest while on vacation.  To protect the hotel from the cost of covering any damages from liabilities or hazards, hotel insurance is a must.  Hotel insurance can offer protection in a wide variety of situations, but what sets it apart from more generic business insurance policies is hotel insurance is customized for the hotel industry.

Hotel insurance is made up of two main components, property hotel insurance and liability hotel insurance.  Both the property and liability coverage can then be broken down into what it specifically covers.  The property coverage of hotel insurance protects both hotel property and the property of the guests staying there.  In the event of damage to the property, business income coverage in hotel insurance protects from loss of business.  In a hotel where damage to one room can quickly affect many, this aspect of hotel insurance is surprisingly important.  Other property related hotel insurance coverage protects from theft by employees and equipment failure, such as computers and other important appliances related to operating your hotel.

In the service industry, liability coverage is just as important, if not more important, since guests and employees who feel they have been put down can easily file a lawsuit, whether substantiated or not.  Even bogus claims can cost thousands of dollars do defend the good name of the business. Hotel insurance protects from the costs of both guest and employee liability claims.  A guest that slips and falls on a spill in the breakfast area can be a costly customer if hotel insurance is not around to cover the cost of legal expenses and other damages possibly awarded.  Hotel insurance even covers liability claims by employees if they get hurt on the job or file a civil claim for discrimination.

Something else to think about for hotel owners is that franchised properties may require umbrella insurance in addition to standard hotel insurance.  Umbrella insurance is just another layer of financial protection.  It covers above and beyond when the premiums of the hotel insurance are reached by the cost of the damages.  Umbrella insurance is a great second line of defense, especially for larger hotels where paying for a higher premium on a standard hotel insurance policy might be cost prohibitive.

Insurance is an important line of defense for many costly situations facing businesses daily.  For hotels, customized hotel insurance has the potential to preserve the property in the face of seemingly irreparable damage or a strong liability suit.

Specialized Hotel Insurance 4.25/5 (85.00%) 4 votes

Hotel chains have reputations attached to them based on the name of the particular franchise.  To qualify to use the name of a particular hotel chain name as a franchise, the hotel company expects certain standards to be maintained to preserve the integrity of the brand name.  These reputations permeate the public consciousness as well.  Comprehensive hotel insurance can help protect hotels from unexpected events involving the hotel, its employees, and its patrons and their property.

Hotel insurance is generally a combination of several basic insurance policies, including a contents policy, business interruption policy, and both public and employers’ liability policies.  A comprehensive hotel insurance policy saves hotel owners the need to shop around for multiple policies and possibly pay multiple providers multiple premiums that will almost certainly cost more than a bulk hotel insurance policy.

These different coverages are important to make hotel insurance a complete policy.  Contents insurance protects the contents within the hotel from loss or damage.  With hotels pushing more and better features to attract guests, contents coverage protects anything from the new flat screen TVs in the rooms to the towels and the sheets that sometimes disappear after a guest checks out.  Guests’ property coverage also covers the possessions of guests staying on the property from loss or damage, ensuring the hotel is not on the line for paying for replacements.  In addition, franchised hotels are required to hold excess liability insurance.

Business interruption insurance protects the hotel in case of lost business due to loss of facilities from an accident.  It covers the loss of profits while the property is being repaired due to insured events like a fire, flood, or other catastrophe.  Liability for both the public and employers’ covers accidental injury while on the hotel property.  Public liability protects the hotel and its owners from accidental injury claims from a third party, while employers’ liability protects the hotel from employee injuries while on the hotel property.  Hotel insurance also frequently covers other legal expenses such as the cost of barristers and witnesses and opponents’ costs if the case is judged in their favor.

Other hotel insurance policy options include theft by employee coverage, customer inconvenience remuneration expenses, delivery and service errors and omissions, and lost key coverage.
