When we started hosting on Airbnb we had no idea we needed additional insurance to cover us. Fortunately, Duuo is a great solution because it's pay-as-you-go.

But why do I need Duuo? Doesn’t the rental platform provide insurance?

If you think about it, exciting platforms like CanadaStays, Airbnb, and many others just didn’t exist when home insurance policies were designed. Unfortunately, this has now created gaps in coverage that are leaving many hosts vulnerable. That’s why Duuo was developed by The Co-operators.

The first thing you should know is that in general, most homeowners insurance policies do not include coverage for short-term rental activity (like hosting guests in your home).

Secondly, some platforms, such as Airbnb, do provide hosts with protection programs like The Host Guarantee and “Host Protection Insurance”.
While these programs are a good start, they aren’t meant to replace an actual insurance policy. In fact, most platforms (including Airbnb) encourage hosts to get their own insurance.

Short-term rental insurance from Duuo includes $2 million in liability, the full replacement cost of your home and its contents, plus an additional 15 coverages specific to short-term rentals including infestation, vandalism, loss of income, and more.
