A recent survey conducted in tandem by Lodgify and UK insurer, Scofield’s, asked short-term rental owners what concerns them the most about their renters. The #1 answer? Guests injuring themselves, with over half selecting that as their main concern. Next came property damage, weighing in with 44% of respondents citing this concern. Theft rounded out the top three.
Hosts are right to consider the risks associated with short-term renting and take steps to ensure their guests are safe. The good news? All of these top issues can be covered by commercial short-term rental insurance.
If these are your top concerns as a property owner, you should sleep better at night knowing that you’re protected by your vacation rental insurance provider. A commercial vacation rental insurance provider typically covers both injury (and therefore, your liability as an owner) as well as property damage.
