Hotel and Pub Insurance has traditionally been a very limited market for publicans and business owners alike and a costly overhead due to limited insurers. Oliver Whittingham, hotel insurance broker and co-director of Matrix Insurance Group, has listened closely to the needs of hotel and pub operators around the country and is able to provide a comprehensive insurance package at competitive premiums.
The key for publicans is to choose a broker completely independent of any scheme arrangement, this allows more competition from the available insurers and ultimately drives down premiums, giving you a better deal in the long term.
Many country pubs are large federation style hotels. If you are responsible for insuring the building then it is very important to insure for the full replacement value of the building. We generally recommend having a building replacement valuation done to ensure that you are insuring the building and contents for the correct amount. Nearly all insurance policies have whats called a ‘Co-insurance clause or Average Clause’. This means that if you under-insure you may not receive full compensation in the event of a loss occurring.
Another tip for publicans is to split their turnover between bar sales, food, bottleshop, gaming and accommodation. If you don’t split your turnover, the insurance company will generally lump it all under bar sales and you might be paying more than you should for public liability insurance.
For small country hotels Matrix Insurance is able to offer $10 million public liability insurance for as little as $2,100 per year.
With easy monthly payment options available, unrivalled personal service and expert and independent advice, Matrix Insurance Group are raising the bar for Hotel and Pub Insurance across Australia.

Thanks so much for doing all the foot work and finding out what we actually need. The best advise we have been given in a long time. Congratulations on a terrific job.
What separates Oliver from most brokers is that he “gets” our business, he never sells, he goes the extra mile and further for us, he works to reduce our premiums, not increase them and will recommend alternatives that are relevant to our needs and discourage what is not, even if, it may not benefit him.
I have been using Matrix Insurance for many years now and I am extremely pleased with not only the personal service that I receive but also the price of the insurance coverage that Matrix has been able to obtain for my 3 businesses. My premiums have come down dramatically. I am delighted that I changed to Matrix Insurance.
By taking the time to understand our business and the industry in which we operate, the team at Matrix were able to secure the right cover for the best price.
I would like to thank you for all the support and advice you have given us, making this journey much easier. The comprehensive options you bring to the table help us to make logical decisions in this area.
Even being in a small country town in Tasmania is not a problem for Matrix Insurance. We had to make a motor vehicle claim and our vehicle was removed the same day and payment within 2 weeks! Thank you Matrix Insurance for providing a hassle free claims service.
