Bed & Breakfast insurance
B&Bs are the bedrock of the UK’s tourism industry. These family-run operations are where we take our holidays, welcomed into the host’s home and treated like one of the family. Because they feel so much more ‘personal’ than large hotels, B&Bs are hugely popular as business enterprises too – after all, if you live in a beautiful part of the country and have a couple of spare bedrooms, why not generate an additional income by welcoming guests?
It’s a tough industry, though, and competition is fierce. You also have plenty of paperwork to do and regulations to comply with, including having the right kind of insurance. Our specialist B&B insurance may be better suited to your requirements than a standard household insurance policy.
A better understanding of the industry
At Intasure, our policy is designed to offer household and business protection for B&B owners, who may find it difficult to secure a B&B home insurance policy for their business.
Why is it so difficult to find adequate B&B insurance?
Because you’re using your home as a business, your normal home and contents house insurance may not cover all of the potential risks involved, such as accidental damage by guests, or business interruption cover.
Public and Products Liability cover is standard within our B&B insurance, as this helps protect you against the costs of compensation claims if a guest is injured or their property is damaged while they are staying at your house. This cover is not always part of home buildings and contents insurance, so you may need specialist cover to make sure you have a suitable level of protection.
If you search online for ‘B&B insurance near me’ then you’ll likely be directed to comparison sites to look at bed and breakfast insurance rates. However, you should consider that the cheapest product does not always provide adequate cover and you may wish to talk direct to bed and breakfast insurance specialists who really understand both the insurance industry, and the challenges B&B owners face. That’s where we can help.
