If you run a hotel, then you'll know that there are three key things you need to protect: your property, your staff and guests, and your income. That's why it's so important to have a good hotel insurance policy in place. Buildings and contents insurance will protect your property, while public and employers' liability insurance will cover you if someone gets hurt. And if your business is interrupted for any reason, business interruption insurance will help you to keep the money coming in. Of course, there are lots of other things to think about when it comes to insuring your hotel, and that’s why it’s so important to get the advice of an expert before you make any decisions.


When it comes to hotel insurance, one size definitely doesn't fit all. That's why at Towergate, they take the time to get to know your business and work closely with you to draw up a policy that's tailored specifically to your needs. They understand that every hotel or guesthouse is different, so they'll make sure that your policy is equally unique. And because they know that your time is valuable, they'll do all the legwork to get you the best possible cover at the most competitive price. So, if you're looking for hotel insurance that gives you complete peace of mind, Towergate has you covered.
