Vrbo® Insurance Policy
While Vrbo Insurance coverage is similar to Airbnb Insurance, there are some distinctions to keep in mind. The $1 million dollars in insurance coverage may safeguard you if you are sued by a guest for an accident or injury that happens throughout their visit. It might even cover you if the guest does unintended harm to a third party's residential property such as a next-door neighbor. It does not, however, cover deliberate damage brought on by a guest to your building.
Vrbo even has additional exclusions that are subject to evaluation, which makes getting paid for the claim much more difficult. It is mainly geared towards circumstances where a guest is harmed on the property. A good example is a case when a guest falls down the steps or slips in the bathtub and breaks an arm or leg. It might cover the guest's medical expenses and may even shield the host from liability of being sued. It likewise applies to a scenario where a guest leaves the water on in the bathroom sink and the flooding creates damage to a neighbors' building.
Nonetheless, because it neglects scenarios where a guest inadvertently trips and falls into a closet door and the doors are broken, your residential property is at substantial risk. In this case, you might need to hold an independent homeowner's policy to cover property damages. Yet, many homeowner policies do not protect your house when you rent it out for income. This leaves you at high risk to have to cover pricey damages by yourself.
