Insurance Survey

A significant challenge for the outdoor sector

Posted on 13.01.2021

Sourcing insurance cover has emerged as a significant challenge in the economic recovery of tourism businesses in Queensland and across Australia.

The Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) is currently facilitating a project that seeks to identify the specific issues of concern in relation to insurance for tourism and hospitality businesses in Queensland and nationally.

The goal of the project is to identify and highlight the challenges faced by all parties and in turn explore potential solutions to improve financial and operational viability of all businesses involved. The project’s first phase is planned to be completed in June 2021.

QTIC is currently seeking input from all tourism and hospitality businesses and other stakeholders* who are involved in risk management.

This national survey is seeking information and case studies for inclusion in the initial research phase of the project.

While this is a survey primarily focussed on the tourism sector, the problem of finding suitable insurance cover is also applicable to the outdoor activity and education sector (Outdoors Queensland)

We appreciate you giving ten minutes of your time for completion.
