Sail Away! Port Canaveral Bounces Back
Melbourne, Fla.—The future looks bright for the tourism sector in the region, that after two years of COVID-19 complete shutdown. Now with the recent relaxation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention mask rules, cruise lines are loosening their restrictions. The industry is quickly recovering, and so are the businesses that receive beneficial economic impact from it.
The port's five-month revenue figure for 2021-22 is ahead of the $42.4 million in 2018-19 and not far from the $47.8 million for 2019-20, according to Port Canaveral’s Chief Executive Officer.
Last year, Port Canaveral was voted Best U.S. Cruise Homeport of 2021 by Cruise Hive, receiving more votes than any other port, including the cruise capital of the world, PortMiami, also in Florida.
Transportation Services in Port Canaveral, Orlando Airport, Disney World, Disney Resort, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa Beach, Carnival Cruise, Royal Caribbean Cruise, Norwegian Cruise, Disney Port Canaveral Transport, as well as many other Orlando resorts were patiently waiting for this moment.
Now that we are just starting to see things from the other side of the spectrum, it is of utter importance to keep your investments very well protected. For a transportation business owner/operator, just like you need auto insurance for your own car, you need commercial auto insurance to cover your business-owned or leased vehicles. If you, or any of your employees have an accident in your business's car, you may be liable for bodily injuries, lost wages or any damage caused. Nobody wants that, especially not now that we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
Typical coverage for public transportation providers includes:
Bodily Injury Liability - Coverage for damages that involve bodily injury to others for which you become responsible under law.
Property Damage Liability - Coverage for damage to property of others for which you become responsible under law.
Medical Payments - Coverage for reasonable and necessary medical expenses and funeral services for those who are accidentally injured while in your automobile or while getting into or out of your automobile.
Personal Injury Protection - Coverage for medical, hospital, rehabilitation, loss of wages or loss of services costs resulting from injury to you or any resident family member. In case of death to the insured or a resident family member, death benefits and survivor benefits, if applicable, will be provided.
