Insurance companies tend to place vacation rentals in the commercial business category, so your homeowners’ insurance or personal insurance will not cover issues that arise. Airbnb offers Host Protection Coverage, a $1 million guarantee, but it is somewhat limited. Simply put, if you have your rental on multiple platforms and vacation rental sites, the best option is to purchase vacation rental insurance so you are always protected.
