Insurance for Backpackers Hostels, Bunkhouses & Bothies.

Why does a hostel, bunkhouse or bothy need insurance?

Owners need to cover against liability incidents such as trips, slips and injuries to visitors and staff. They also need to cover against material losses and damage such as theft, flood, storm and fire.


Why is it sometimes difficult to insure hostels, bunkhouses and bothies?

Some hostels offer luxury and service to a standard that puts hotels to shame, others are just 4 walls and a roof. Some offer secure private accommodation and restaurant facilities whilst others are unlocked and communal with cooking on the floor. Insurance companies like to insure things that are standard, uniform and tick all their boxes. Unfortunately the word hostel can mean a wide range of things and underwriters often find it easier to decline something they cannot clearly understand.

What insurance does a hostel, bunkhouse or bothy need?

No two premises are the same so we like to provide a solution suited to your needs. Most will require public liability and perhaps employers liability. If you own the building you will need buildings insurance and unless you have the most basic bothy you might also want cover for contents and stock. In addition we can cover money, business interruption, loss of licence, personal accident, tour operators liability, directors and officers and a wide range of other covers.
