Direct Line launches insurance solution for hospitality sector

Listen to this article

Direct Line for Business has developed a new end-to-end business insurance solution, which enables small and micro-sized hospitality businesses to purchase insurance directly.

The new programme includes an online tool that enables customers to create a customised policy that is totally unique to their business, meaning that policyholders will only pay for the insurance that they need.

Customers can see the cost of each product section and have the ability to add or remove options as they choose. New cover options are now available so that customers can choose multiple locations, such as working in an office, renting a desk or a space in places such as WeWork and Regus, a pop-up location or working from home.

With no mid-term amendment fees, policyholders can also change their cover levels as their business flexes, such as expanding or contracting their workforce, or working from multiple locations or opening new premises.

Jazz Gakhal, managing director at Direct Line for Business, said: “Small businesses are the lifeblood of the UK economy. We understand that no two hospitality businesses are the same, so we need to ensure we have an insurance solution that can keep up with the evolving landscape of the sector.

“Our research shows that companies are constantly changing, whether it’s recruiting staff or expanding into new premises, so they need peace of mind that they have an insurance policy that is adaptable and flexible enough to keep up with their ever-changing world.”
