Launching in January 2022
OUR BOP PROGRAM!!!
Our NEW BOP program will launch in January 2022!
We’ll now be able to compete for your BOP business! For years we’ve had to pass on quoting against BOP programs because of coverage and pricing issues. Those days are gone and we welcome the opportunity to write your BOP business.
In general, our BOP program will include the following classes:
- Restaurants, with or without alcohol sales
- Package/liquor stores
- Convenience stores – no gas
- Commercial condominiums
- Many main street retail classes.
We are currently in the testing phase and plan to be actively writing business by the start of the new year. Along with the BOP launch we will also be launching a new agent portal to provide agents with quote/issue capability on approved BOP business and access to other information such as policy documents, billing information and loss runs.

“PAY AS YOU POUR”
OUR NEW EXCLUSIVE FINANCING PROGRAM FOR YOUR LIQUOR LIABILITY CLIENTS
Pay as you Pour is an exclusive financing option offered by Hospitality Insurance Group and First Insurance Funding for liquor liability policyholders. A signed premium finance agreement with First Insurance Funding is required to participate in the program and the business must have a verifiable sales tracking system. Policyholders report actual sales data bi-monthly through the First’s Pay as you Pour portal. Eligible POS system users can have sales data automatically reported for them. This program is now available for new and renewal business.
Some of the highlights of the program include:
- A down payment of only 10%
- Attractive finance rates
- Improved cash flow – payments are based on actual monthly sales
- An easy-to-use on-line reporting portal
- Easier to renew – no chasing down last year’s sales – we already have it
Watch this video of our Pay as you Pour webinar to learn more about the program.
Quoting Business with us just got EASIER!
One thing we have all become accustomed to during COVID-19 is change. There has been plenty of it and there is sure to be more to come. We are announcing a temporary change to our sales verification process that we believe will make it much easier for you to get a quote from Hospitality.
See the changes below and share them with your staff that works with Hospitality Insurance Group. These changes are effective immediately and are intended to make renewing business and placing new business with us easier to do.
Sales Verification will not be required for renewals.
For Renewals, or accounts coming back to us, (who did not renew or cancelled due to COVID-19) which we are treating as renewals, send us the renewal app and we will do the rest.
For New Business, we will quote “subject to” receipt of pre-COVID sales before binding.
Send us the new business liquor app and indicate PRE COVID annual sales and we will quote subject to.
If you like our quote, we will require sales verification Pre Covid to support our quote or update our quote.
Exceptions: – Liquor Stores – will still require sales verification for both New and Renewal business as these establishments were not affected by COVID-19.
If you have any questions regarding these changes, please reach out to your underwriter or marketing representative.
On March 24, 2020, the MA Commissioner of Insurance issued bulletin 2020-05 regarding flexibility in the issuance and administration of insurance during COVID-19.
On Monday, March 16, 2020, Hospitality Insurance Group was one of the first companies to respond to the financial crisis facing policyholders. On that day we issued the Hospitality Insurance Group’s COVID-19 Response to our agents and policyholders. The response is posted here for your reference. The response plan properly addresses the actions requested by the commissioner of insurance.
We are committed to working with our agents and policyholders during these trying times.
