Glamping Insurance Case Study

When offering bespoke accommodation and glamping experiences, it can be hard to find an insurance company that will meet the unique needs of your business. Looking at a case study, find out how Towergate Insurance was able to do just that.

How do you go about insuring an old double decker bus and a converted helicopter?

When it comes to the world of glamping, it seems no accommodation is too crazy, anything that captures the imagination and delivers a unique experience for guests is fair game!

However, even as an existing, established park, you may have found insuring any unique propositions a little more difficult, or even had to look at having separate cover. At Towergate Insurance, we offer a tailored insurance product for holiday and residential parks, including new markets such as glamping, all under one Site Operator’s Insurance policy.

A glamping case study

So, how do you go about insuring converted old buses and helicopters? Here’s just one example where we were able to help a holiday park customer with their insurance needs.

This case study is based around an established holiday park site, who had branched out into the weird and wonderful world of glamping. Their accommodation selection was certainly diverse including tree houses, a converted double decker bus, helicopter and fire engine, log cabins and shepherd huts, alongside more traditional holiday site pitches for tents, touring caravans and motorhomes.

As an established site, we began by looking at the claims history, the existing facilities and the park policies in place. They were able to demonstrate good site maintenance, staff training and a great approach to health and safety and risk mitigation. This was also carried through to the new niche accommodation, demonstrating the same considered approach in the construction, installation and risk mitigation for each of these units. Although this park was claim free, should you have encountered a claim in the past, you can help your park’s overall risk view by showing what measures have been taken to diminish further risk.

Glamping site insurance with Towergate

With our dedicated in-house underwriters’ expertise, combined with the clear park policies, as well as good risk planning demonstrated by the park, we were able to complete this from quote to cover in just a few short days. And, as well as placing the park on cover, including all facilities, accommodation and full liability, we were able to save them circa £1,000 on their existing policy premium.
