Guest House Insurance

Having the correct Guest House Insurance is without a doubt one of the most important considerations when running or owning a Guest House.

Guest house insurance is a very specific type of insurance, a hybrid of personal and commercial insurance. Unless you have specific guest insurance in place, there is every chance that you expose your business and family home to considerable risk.


There is also little doubt that Guest House Insurance is one of the most neglected areas, with many Guest Houses having the incorrect insurance in place.

Having the correct Guest House insurance affects many issues that range from marketing and grading, through to your own liability towards guests.

Having the incorrect Guest House insurance prevents Guest Houses from being graded

Incorrect Guest House Insurance also prevents Guest Houses listing with Match, the FIFA world cup accommodation partner

What Guest House Insurance Must Have

Guest House Insurance should be tailored to each individual Guest House, meeting both the needs and the budgets of the owners. In addition it is absolutely essential that the correct public liability cover is in place. Without this, peace of mind cannot be assured.
