With Flames in the West and Floodwaters in the East,
Insurance Property Premiums Continue to rise!
** A SUCCESS STORY**
While many insurance carriers are raising rates and others non-renewing policies, REHIA successfully quoted a 55- room motel $3.8 Million TIV $9,938 premium with a $1,000 deductible in WA. Competing quotes were twice this premium. Comparable quotes are available in California and western states.
All industries experience cycles of expansion and contraction, and this is particularly true of the insurance industry. Typically, insurance cycles last two to ten years. A soft market is characterized by lower insurance premiums and easier underwriting. A hard market has rising insurance premiums and restrictive underwriting. 
A recent string of natural disasters, such as California forest fires in the West and flooding in the East and Midwest, have been the main causes for this change in the insurance cycle from soft to hard market conditions as we approach the end of 2019.

Here are three reasons for the rising property premiums:
1.      For insurance carriers, all of these significant natural disasters mean a large increase in claims. In 2011, a year declared as the highest catastrophe-related economic losses in history, losses were estimated at $350 billion. The   2019 wildfire season  in the western United States is the current-running fire season in   California . So far, over 6,402 fires have been recorded according to  Cal Fire  and the  US Forest Service , totaling an estimated of 250,349 acres.

REPORT FROM THE U.S.—As multiple generations of family members travel together and are looking for memorable, Instagrammable vacations, hotels are responding by creating innovative packages and promotions that appeal to grandparents, parents and their kids.

According to hoteliers, these promotions are paying off in added revenues and traveler loyalty.

"More and more families are traveling with grandparents and even other extended family like aunts, uncles and cousins as part of family vacations,” said David Sangree, president of Hotel & Leisure Advisors. “As the boomer generation continues to retire in large numbers with greater wealth and health, this trend should continue in the future."
Results from the 2019-2020 MMGY Global “Portrait of American Travelers” survey showed that 43% of travelers reported taking a vacation last year with children, accounting for 29% of their total vacations. And 44% of grandparents in the survey reported having traveled with their grandchildren at least once away from home in the past 12 months, said Chris Davidson, EVP of insights and strategy at MMGY Global.
