The issue of Business Interruption Insurance and whether businesses in tourism and hospitality have a viable claim based on their policies have been under the spotlight. The South African Tourism Services Association (SATSA) ran a recent survey to get an understanding of the pain points and developed a comprehensive FAQ which you can find here.

The crux of the issue is around the policy wording of Business Interruption extensions. To provide further clarity, SATSA is hosting a live webinar with legal and insurance experts to discuss the issue and answer your questions.

Please note that this webinar cannot deal with each specific case as policy wordings differ policy-to-policy. Rather, it is aimed at helping you understand how the wording of Business Interruption insurance policies can be interpreted differently and answer questions that will be of general interest to the wider tourism and hospitality community.

Should you wish to submit your questions for the webinar beforehand, please email
