Compensation clauses are entered into contracts that allow an exemption taker to cover the potential losses of a contracting party in the contract.

John books package holidays through a travel agency that includes a hotel stay. As part of his package vacation, there is a compensation clause that, if he is to harm John, damages his hotel room, he is required to compensate the hotel.
