First Notice of Loss (FNOL) is a critical touch point in the claims process. A hotel is the first need of a policyholder who has lost the use of their home. Don't let this opportunity go unmet. Within the hour, ALE Hotel Solutions will secure an appropriate, cost-effective hotel accommodation for your policyholder. By making one call to ALE, you have served the immediate need, gained control of the claim and developed trust with your policyholder. 

Our hotel contact Thomas was fantastic and covered all the bases. He found us a hotel in an hour and whenever we had a question, he was there to help.

How It All Works

Simply refer policyholders to ALE Solutions at the first notice of loss, and we will take care of the rest. From our first conversation with the family, we learn about their specific needs. We search for the most acceptable and cost-effective hotel solution close to the damaged residence.

ALE manages every detail of the hotel stay, including fielding all calls from policyholders. ALE becomes your eyes and ears throughout the claim and will reach out to you for any needed extensions. At checkout, adjusters get only one bill, eliminating multiple receipts and reimbursements.

Through ALE's proactive hotel solutions, we provide a high level of service and build trust from the start.
