Insurance Services in Australia

Essential Information to Consider

Securing the appropriate insurance for a short-term rental property is of paramount importance, as it provides essential coverage tailored to the unique risks associated with temporary rentals. 

  • Opting for the appropriate short-term rental insurance provides reassurance when you intend to welcome paying guests into your home.
  • Finding the right insurance can be tricky, as there are different solutions for each scenario.  Best to speak to a Broker about your unique situation.
  • AirCover can be handy for claiming some guest-related losses, but it is not an insurance and is not a replacement for having your own private cover.
