Hub International Partners With InsuraGuest, Inc. To Lower Insurance Premiums And Transfer Risks For Hotel Clients
CHICAGO and VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Hub International Limited (HUB), a leading global insurance brokerage, and InsuraGuest Technologies, Inc.®'s (TSX-V: ISGI) wholly-owned subsidiary, InsuraGuest, Inc. ("InsuraGuest") announce their premier preferred partnership to provide InsuraGuest's Hospitality Liability coverage to HUB hotel clients in the U.S. with plans to expand to HUB's clients in Canada by mid-2021.
InsuraGuest coverage and platform transfers high frequency small property and medical guest claims to reduce risk, decrease premiums and generate revenue for hotel operators.
A considerable amount of a hotel operator's claims is from small property or medical claims that are frequently applied to the general liability policy. This high frequency in claims drives up premium prices. The InsuraGuest solution transfers the risk from the hotel operator by having guests pay a nominal fee per night. InsuraGuest then pays out these small claims and keeps them off the general liability policy for the hotel operator.
"Given the current state of the hospitality industry, it is nice to have a new and exciting tool such as InsuraGuest, which will help us lower a hotel's overall liability costs through claims avoidance. InsuraGuest costs a hotel owner nothing. In fact, it actually generates new revenue while giving us the means to reduce General Liability premiums by improving guest loss ratios," said Kevin Eggleston, Managing Director of HUB's Hospitality Specialty Practice. "By minimizing the frequency of a hotel's claims, we are able to have better underwriting conversations with the marketplace."
"We look forward to our premier preferred partnership with HUB, which will allow us to expand our product offering to their more than 9,300 hospitality customers in the U.S. this year and into Canada next year," said InsuraGuest CEO and Chairman Douglas Anderson.
