Damages caused by floods are excluded in most homeowner and business policies.
That is why, for those who live in areas susceptible to floods, it is necessary to have financial protection against such loss. Because waters displace for miles, we are not exempt from floods even if our property is not close to bodies of water.
MAPFRE offers a Flood Insurance Policy that provides coverage for losses to your home as a result of flooding.
You may select coverage for your structure, its content, or both coverages combined.
This Insurance product is not affiliated with the National Flood Insurance Program.
MAPFRE insurances offer you a wide range of advantages to protect your commercial dwelling and provide peace of mind to you and your business.
The Flood insurance is a policy designed to provide full protection facing a flooding in your business premises.
All policyholders have access to the most modern telephone office in Puerto Rico, MAPFRE Contact Center. It is a specialized service that meets the needs of our customers and claimants.
Your Flood Insurance offers you the following benefits:
Benefits of the structure’s property coverage
Direct physical loss caused by a flooding in the commercial dwelling described in the policy is indemnified.
Benefits of the personal property coverage
By subscribing this coverage, direct physical loss of personal property inside the premises due to flooding is covered.
Benefits of the vandalism or malicious damage coverage
Costs are covered for losses caused by vandalism while the property is flooded.
Benefits of the loss prevention coverage
We pay up to $ 1,000 for reasonable expenses incurred by moving insured property to another location to protect it from flooding or flood hazard.
Benefits of the emergency assistance for fixed plumbing
Emergency assistance is included, provided that the insured commercial dwelling has a fixed plumbing emergency located within the structure.
The General Conditions of any insurance are aimed at detailing the terms of coverages and their content.
