If you haven’t heard of Airbnb, where have you been? Airbnb is a market place for people to list, discover and book unique accommodations all around the world. They have dealt with 100 million guests in the last 9 years and are becoming one of the most competitive and fastest-growing markets in the travel industry.
The idea is for travellers to be able to book their holidays in the same way as any other holiday booking site, the difference being that the hosts and accommodation are ordinary people and homes. The benefit of this is that travellers can save money, as typically an Airbnb property is cheaper than a traditional hotel, and hosts can earn a bit of extra money by letting out their entire home.
If you’re thinking about becoming an Airbnb host, then you’ll probably be wondering how this will affect your home insurance. With Intasure, if you have either a main home, holiday home or even second home policy with us then we will cover you for letting out the entire house using Airbnb.*
