What Types of Insurance Do I Need for My Short-Term Rental?

insurance Feb 01, 2019

Well, here is it.  The truth about insurance that no one is telling you.


If you have a home that you are doing short-term rentals out of and you only have a regular Home Owner’s Policy, you probably are wasting your money because you are NOT covered.


If you have a Landlord’s Policy, you have the same problem.  You are probably not covered.


If you are depending on Airbnb’s $1,000,000 policy, you are leaving huge gaps in your insurance needs.


So, now that I’ve scared the bejesus out of you and have your attention, let me just add that’s it’s an easy fix.


First, you want to ask your agents some questions and you want to SEE, with your own eyes, meaning have your agent point out to you, specifically where in your policy that these things would be covered by a short-term renter. 


Questions like:

  • What if a guest starts a fire in my kitchen?
  • What if a guest’s child drowns in my pool? In our...

Want Fewer Requests for Refunds Due to Cancellations? Try This Trick!

for your guests insurance Jan 01, 2019



You may have a Strict Cancellation Policy on your Airbnb listing but that’s not going to stop people from canceling and requesting a full refund.  Nor is it going to stop some less-than-scrupulous characters from holding a negative review over your head in order to get their money back.


Unfortunately, this is becoming a thing.  More and more, I find that I come across a feed in one of the Airbnb Hosts’ Groups that talk about these types of guest using extortion tactics (yes, it’s a real crime) to get money back although the guest read the policy and agreed to the terms that were stated clearly.


What can you do?


Well, aside from ignoring them, risk getting a bad review, and crossing your fingers during a long and drawn out back-and-forth with Airbnb to get the review removed – I find that you can avoid the entire situation altogether.
