Renting out your home through Airbnb is a great way to advertise your holiday rental property, especially if you intend on having guests throughout the year rather than just during peak seasons.
As a successful holiday home is often occupied all year round, your property is likely to receive a steady influx of guests. This is great, but it also increases the risk to your treasured property and the furniture within it.

If you do not make your insurers aware then your policy could be invalid. Most standard homeowners insurance policies exclude cover for short-term rentals and would also exclude cover for malicious damage or theft by people lawfully in the property, so this type of policy is not suitable.
While Airbnb does provide limited cover for damage caused by guests to your and third party property and your liability in relation to your guests, you do still need buildings and/or contents insurance to cover all other losses such as fire, theft, storm, flood, escape of water etc. Not all insurers accept Airbnb arrangements so you would need to make your main property insurer aware of your intentions.
