What is a Package Policy?
A package policy is a combination policy providing several different type of insurance products. An insurance package policy usually refers to a policy providing both general liability insurance and property insurance. Premium discounts are usually applied to a package policy to reflect cost efficiencies. A package policy is effectively a bundling approach that does offer multiple products that are commonly needed or purchased together.
Some examples of insurance products that are sold as a package policy are:
Commercial Property + Commercial General Liability (CGL)
Commercial Property + Commercial General Liability (CGL) + Crime / Employee Dishonesty Insurance
Professional Liability / Errors & Omissions (E&O) + Commercial General Liability (CGL)
Directors & Officers (D&O) / Board Insurance + Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPL)
Pollution Liability Insurance + Commercial General Liability (CGL)
Why Create an Insurance Package Policy?
Bundling or creating an insurance package policy is not a new concept, but there is an increasing amount of interest around it as a business strategy as noted by Dawn Milne in the Ivey Business Journal Article, entitled BUNDLING PRODUCTS AND SERVICES: THE NEW SUPER SOLUTION THAT GIVES COMPANIES AN EDGE. Bundled products or services often have many benefits for the buyer and can be a good business strategy for the seller as well. However, It is important to recognize that a package policy is not automatically the best insurance product for every business and options should be examined to ensure the best fit.
