Hospitality

Preparation is everything

Tourism is booming in the UK but no matter the size of your business, there is always a lot to think about when opening your doors to customers.

We understand these issues – labour supply, VAT on tourism, ensuring good food hygiene, controlling your input costs, economic and trading uncertainties, the continued rise of online booking agencies and making your industry the ‘go to’ career for people.

There are health and safety issues too, as well as compliance with other rules and regulations. The things you need to consider seem endless.

But you’re not alone - we can help plan for the unexpected and get you back on your feet should things go wrong. Our network of specialist agents work extensively with the hospitality industry - everything from boutique, urban chic and country house hotels including experience with listed and graded buildings through to coffee shops and restaurants. Not only do we understand your industry, but we’re close by to provide a local and personal service.

  • Protection against a wide range of risks you face
  • Local, knowledgeable agents who understand your business on-hand to provide you with a personal and attentive service
  • No quibble claims service

To find about the products we provide, have a look at our Business Insurance area or contact your Local Office.
