CHES Special Risk supports growing demand for short-term rental insurance

TORONTO, ON, MARCH 28, 2022 /inPRESS/ – Short-term rental is one of the most prevalent sectors under the sharing economy model. It allows owners to generate additional income by renting out a portion of the entire home to students, travelers, and short-term rental seekers for a short period through online rental services such as Airbnb.

In reality, short-term rentals come with unique exposures, and ignorant landlords assume these substantial ownership and liability risks, hoping that their usual landlord’s policy will cover them. Thus, it is necessary to raise awareness that condo and homeowners insurance is generally not designed to cover commercial use, leaving homeowners personally exposed to significant risk.

Insurance coverage available through online services such as Airbnb may have unforeseen coverage gaps and holes that could expose homeowners to harm.
