Am I automatically insured if I have a company who manages my property rental?

Not necessarily.

Some hosts contract property management companies who specialise in managing listings on sharing economy platforms like AirbnbStayz, 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!
