Here’s an extended list of Airbnb insurance provider and brokers in Australia that offer coverage for short-term accommodation.

Choosing the right insurance for your Airbnb property is crucial for several reasons:

  1. Protection against Damages: Hosting guests in your property poses risks of accidental damages or theft. The right insurance can provide coverage for property damage or loss caused by guests, protecting your investment.
  2. Liability Coverage: Accidents can happen, and if a guest is injured during their stay, you could be held liable. Airbnb insurance can cover medical expenses and legal fees if you’re sued for bodily injury or property damage sustained by a guest while on your property.
  3. Loss of Income Coverage: If your property becomes uninhabitable due to covered damages, you might lose rental income during repairs. Airbnb insurance policies often include coverage for loss of income, reimbursing you for the income you would have earned while your property is unavailable.
  4. Host Guarantee vs. Host Protection Insurance: It’s important to understand the difference between Airbnb’s Host Guarantee and Host Protection Insurance. The Host Guarantee is not insurance and has limitations, while Host Protection Insurance provides liability coverage for hosts.
  5. Customisation: Different insurance providers offer varying coverage options and limits. Choosing the right insurance allows you to tailor coverage to your specific needs, such as adding coverage for high-value items or extending coverage for longer-term rentals.
  6. Compliance with Local Regulations: Some cities or municipalities may require hosts to have specific insurance coverage or meet certain liability requirements. Ensuring you have the right insurance helps you comply with local regulations and avoid potential fines or penalties.
  7. Peace of Mind: Ultimately, having the right insurance gives you peace of mind knowing that you’re financially protected against unforeseen events that could negatively impact your Airbnb business or personal finances.

Before selecting an insurance policy for your Airbnb property, carefully review the coverage options, exclusions, deductibles, and any additional requirements to make an informed decision that best meets your needs. Consulting with an insurance agent or broker who specialises in short-term rental properties can also be helpful in navigating the complexities of Airbnb insurance.

Please note that the availability of Airbnb insurance coverage and specific policy details may vary among these insurance companies. It’s advisable to reach out to them directly or visit their websites for the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding Airbnb and short-term accommodation coverage.
