Some hosts contract property management companies who specialise in managing listings on sharing economy platforms like Airbnb, Stayz, and TripAdvisor, to take care of their short-term rentals. Some of the most well-known short-term rental management agencies are HomeHost and MadeComfy.
Importantly, you and your property aren’t necessarily insured for short-term guest rentals, even when using these services.
Currently, no short-term rental management company in Australia offers home sharing liability insurance as part of their services - though both HomeHost and MadeComfy encourage their users get adequate short term rental insurance. HomeHost even recommends cover from us here at ShareCover specifically - thanks guys!
