We can cover your guests’ possessions up to a value of £1000 in any one insured period. This means you can make multiple claims but is capped at £1000 until you renew your policy. This covers most luggage items including phones, laptops, jewellery and cosmetics however, we are unable to cover your guest’s personal cash.
Naturally you’ll want to protect your income, but if something unexpected happens such as a burst pipe or a fire, you’ll need to make sure you’re covered if your guests can’t stay. Our policy can insure you for up to £100 per week for up to eight weeks to help your business tick along while repairs are made.
If a guest has an accident on your premises which is linked to their stay in your property you may be liable and have to pay out compensation. It might be towards the repair of something damaged or because they have been injured as a result of the accident. Either way, the policy can pay out up to £2m to a third party. Just beware this cover does not apply to you or someone who is related to you.
We do our best to cover as many B&Bs as possible. If we can’t cover you though, we’ve probably got a friend who can. Our policy is limited to B&Bs with six guests staying in three bedrooms but if you’re B&B or guest house is a bit bigger, let us know and we’ll happily source you a policy.
These are just some of the key features and exclusions, full details will be found in your policy wording. Show policy documents

Unrelated guests that stay in your property you would not need this extra cover. Always check the terms of your current home insurance but it’s likely this will be adequate cover for your situation.
This particular policy is limited to six guests staying in three rooms. Unfortunately this policy does not cover six people in six rooms or anything over six people in your B&B at any one time. If you require more cover for more guests or rooms, please still get in touch and we’ll source you a more suitable policy.
Our B&B insurance policy does include loss of income but only in the case of an insured peril such as escape of water or fire. If a guest stays with you but refuses to pay, we are unable to pay out for this circumstance.
It means that the item referred to will be replaced for its current value as new, so without a deduction for wear, tear or age.
You can pay by credit card or monthly direct debit. The charge for paying by credit card is £5 if the premium is less than £5000, and 2% of the total premium if £5000 or more.
