Cover Your Property When You Rent It to Others – Protection for your home or rental
Renting out your home or part of it via a vacation rental service can be a lucrative enterprise. However, your home insurance probably doesn’t cover this type of use. Instead, you should have vacation rental insurance if you list your property on homestay sites like Airbnb, Vrbo, Homestay, FlipKey, and Casmundo.
Why Do You Need Vacation Rental Insurance?
When it comes to insurance for a property you’re renting out on a homestay site, home insurance coverage can be murky. In many instances, your home insurance policy does not cover damages incurred while someone else is renting it, even if it’s just a portion of the property. The issue is even cloudier if you rent out your property as part of a small business or if the rental property is separate from your actual residence.
Some homestay sites offer their own insurance, but this may not provide adequate coverage if you have an expensive property or if renters do a large amount of damage, even accidentally. A better solution is a separate vacation rental policy to protect your investment in the property and your continued income from it. In fact, many vacation rental websites suggest you do this.
