Airbnb Hosting Insurance

GuestReady vs.png GuardHog

For any bookings on Airbnb, your home is automatically covered by a guarantee up to £600.000. In additional to that, we have partnered up with GUARDHOG to offer you a comprehensive insurance specifically tailored for holiday rentals.

GuestReady’s Host Cover by GUARDHOG is an innovative insurance product, designed to cover hosts when they have paying guests staying in their home, by providing cover which works alongside their existing home and contents insurance.

Why additional insurance?

By renting out your house as a vacation rental, parts of your existing home insurance can be invalidated or restricted. Host Cover by GUARDHOG is designed to replace these specific parts of your normal home insurance with the extra cover you need to rent out your house without any worries.

Essentially, the cover will match the extent of your existing contents and buildings cover if and where these policies won't cover claims because they relate to paying guests' stays.

Additionally, the cover provides our hosts with £1.2m public liability insurance cover against, for example, paying guests injuring themselves in your home during a stay, giving you an additional peace of mind.

What does it cover?

Host Cover by GUARDHOG covers the following:
