Insurance for Airbnb lets

Airbnb and Home and Let Property Insurance

Airbnb has opened up a new world of opportunity to generate income from your property. The flip side is that home and property owners need to beware that insurance companies will not always accept that whole of part of your property being let via Airbnb and your policy may be invalidated as a result.

Only certain insurers will allow homes to be let via Airbnb and at Birnbeck we have access to insurance products that will allow buy to let properties to be let via Airbnb and can give you the appropriate cover. Home insurance cover can be more problematic and care needs to be taken to disclose this activity to your insurer and make the appropriate arrangements.

Whilst Airbnb provide a Host Guarantee, as they freely admit it is not a suitable substitute for properly arranged insurance. Storm and flood damage is not covered by the guarantee and any losses need to be linked to your listing with Airbnb.

Please contact us on 01934 522252 so we discuss your requirements.
