Definition of Accommodation Line
- When an insurance company approves insurance coverage for a client who normally would not qualify as a favour to a broker. A broker may use an insurer for a great deal of business, so in some cases it may behoove the insurer to use an accommodation line to approve a few policies for sub-standard clients in order to placate a broker and stop them from taking their business to another insurance company.
- make room
