Airbnb Insurance Cover
At any given time, thousands of homes are available for short-term & holiday rental through services like Airbnb, including in Northern Queensland, Brisbane, the Gold Coast area, and all across Australia.
However, data shows that over 50% of Airbnb hosts were unable to say for certain whether their current insurer had their property and financial interests protected, or how they were protected.
A lot of the confusion stems from an uncertainty over what the Airbnb Host Protection Insurance covers and what your own home & contents policy will provide.
We have experts who are able to provide you with the advice you need to make sure your assets are financially protected. It’s as simple as calling us on 1300 886 781 for a free quote with no obligations.
Different Types Of Airbnb And Short-Term Holiday Letting Insurance
The home sharing economy, particularly short-term holiday letting, is becoming increasingly popular. Home owners are renting out rooms in their homes, as well as their investment properties. However, standard home insurance policies are very unlikely to cover many, or all, the risks this poses.
Here are some different types of cover that you need to be aware of, before you start taking in short-term tenants.
Airbnb Host Protection Insurance
This is the cover that all Airbnb hosts automatically receive, which is provided through Zurich and Lloyds of London. However, many hosts do not spend enough time to fully analyse and understand what this policy actually covers.
The primary protection this provides is against liability arising from claims involving physical injury or damage to the property of your guests. However, in most cases, this will not protect you from the financial risk of damage of your property. This is why additional cover is so important.
Full Accidental Damage Policies
One of the most unique protections our insurance representatives at Aspire are able to offer is full “Accidental Damage” policy wording through our Steadfast products. This type of policy can provide you with the most comprehensive cover for unforeseen and accidental damage to your property directly resulting from the actions of short- term stays. This extends beyond the typical “Listed Events” cover that is often restricted to natural perils and specific types of damage, and typically includes the following at a minimum:
- Damage to building
- Damaged contents
- Legal Liability
- Excess options starting at $100
- Full Accidental Damage Policy Wording
- Flood Cover
- External Locks or Keys Covered
- Legal costs to evict a tenant
- Automatic Electric Motor Burnout – Repair or Replacement

Face To Face Service
While online insurance quoting systems can be very convenient, nothing can fully replace the peace of mind you receive from talking to an experienced insurance insurance representative face to face. Airbnb and short term holiday letting insurance policies are not as straightforward as many other types of cover.
Ending up with cover that doesn’t protect you from all types of risks can be a devastating situation to encounter when you’re facing an actual claim.
Expert Claims Handling
Whether you’re facing a liability or property damage claim, having to deal with a claims department or insurance assessor can just make an already stressful situation worse.
With the help of our dedicated team, you can make sure that your claim is dealt with in the fastest possible way, so that you don’t have to worry about the finer details.
