You may not be able to claim on your existing home and contents insurance policy for damage or liability caused by a paying guest.
This applies even if you rent your home out for a few nights a year. If something gets damaged or someone gets hurt during a paying guests’ stay, you may have to personally foot the bill.
ShareCover can give you peace of mind that you're insured when you rent your property on platforms such as Airbnb, Stayz, and TripAdvisor. ShareCover is designed to provide flexible home and contents insurance that protects you from risks associated with having a guest in your property. And you can get cover from as little as $5 a night.
Sharing this peace of mind with your guests can allow them to be more relaxed about their stay, particularly in higher value properties. Having ShareCover can mean guests have greater peace of mind that any damage incurred during their stay is covered, and that the claiming process is quick and easy.
