The contract with InsuraGuest will help Bloss leverage his vast network and experience to boost hotel sales and onboarding of InsuraGuest’s platform.

Traditional traveler’s insurance doesn’t cover a number of things that can happen inside hotels or other travel properties, putting both the traveler and the hotel or property owner at risk. People often mistakenly assume that accidents happening at such a property are covered by the property owner’s insurance, but that’s not always the case. InsuraGuest’s proprietary InsurTech software platform delivers a specialized Hospitality Liability policy to the hotel or vacation rental property to protect the guest during their stay while on the property. InsuraGuest is the first line of defense for the property and the guest. The specialized policy covers theft and damage of personal property, as well as accidental medical expenses and accidental death and dismemberment.
