Pub insurance is designed to provide you with complete peace of mind, so you can focus on giving your customers the best possible service.

RAC Pub Insurance is provided by Brightside Insurance Services Ltd. Products supplied by a panel of insurance companies. Details available on request.

Protect your business with pub insurance

One of the best things about running a pub is that you never know what each day will bring. However, there are some tough challenges too. Unforeseen events that your business could really do without can cost you money and damage your reputation. RAC Pub Insurance is fulfilled by Brightside, and designed to help you meet those challenges head-on and get back to business as quickly as possible. The pub insurance policies available can cover you for damage to your premises or to your stock, as well as injury to your employees or customers.

Pub insurance – giving you peace of mind

The pub insurance you buy through the RAC is designed to provide you with complete peace of mind, so you can focus on giving your customers the best possible service.

Enjoy policy packs tailor-made to cater for your exact needs. They can include:

  • Public Liability

Business owners can be held legally responsible for any injury caused to the public or damage to their property that is due to fault of you or your staff. Public liability insurance covers your legal costs should you face an injury compensation claim.

  • Employers’ Liability

Protects your legal responsibility for accidental death or bodily injury caused to your employees arising out of activities connected to your business.

  • Products Liability

Protects your legal liability for injury or damage caused to the public arising from the supply of goods in connection with your business.

  • Business Interruption

If you are unable to operate due to damage following a flood or fire, for example, then business interruption insurance provides financial assistance for an agreed period of time to cover your business overheads.

  • Contents/Stock Cover

This essential extra protects you financially if your contents/stock is stolen or destroyed by fire, malicious damage, or flooding.

  • Money Cover

Make sure your daily takings are protected with cover against the theft of money from your premises or whilst in transit to or from your bank.

  • Glass Cover

In pubs, doors and windows can easily be damaged. Our glass cover as part of your pub insurance package provides cover for the replacement of broken or damaged glass including windows and glass in display cabinets.

Bespoke commercial insurance policies may have limitations and exclusions. Please make sure you read all the documentation as soon as you receive it to confirm you’re happy with the cover provided.

You have a legal obligation (as a buyer of commercial insurance), to disclose information before entering (or changing) a contract of insurance. We call this your duty to make a Fair Presentation of Risk.

It means that when you seek insurance, you need to volunteer and disclose all material information that is known by you (or should be known by you), which an insurer would want to know when it’s deciding whether to offer insurance cover and, if so, on what terms and at what price.

You need to make sure that facts are correct or substantially correct, and statements of expectation or belief are made in good faith.
