Hostel, Backpacker and Bunkhouse Insurance
Backpacker, Hostel & Bunkhouse Insurance
If you own a hostel or bunkhouse for backpackers, it is essential that you have the right insurance. No matter the size, popularity or location of your business, insurance is vital to ensure you, your business and your guests are safe and protected.
Below we outline some important insurance policies you may wish to consider for your hospitality business.
• Buildings – Should the worst happen, such as a fire, flood or even vandalism, building insurance will ensure your building is protected and any damage or repair work can be completed as quickly as possible.
• Contents – What is a bunkhouse without its bunks? From furniture to kitchen supplies, the contents of your business are necessary for its day-to-day running. Whether you are a victim of theft or a guest accidentally breaks an important item of furniture, contents insurance will ensure you can replace essential items easily.
• Liabilities – Slip and trips occur in any business place. Liability insurance will handle this swiftly and effectively.
The above are just a few of the policies a hostel owner should consider; other policies include loss of license, refrigerated goods cover and stock and external signs, for example.
Running a hostel or bunkhouse is undoubtedly very rewarding, but can also be very overwhelming. Two hostels are rarely the same as they offer guests a more personal and authentic place to stay whilst travelling. Your insurance policy, like your business, should be unique.
