Protect Your Rental Space With Airbnb Host Insurance From Duuo!

What Is Airbnb Host Insurance?

Duuo’s short-term rental insurance, also known as Airbnb host insurance, bridges the gap between a standard home insurance policy and Airbnb’s built-in coverage. Established in 2017 as a brand of The Co-operators, Duuo was designed to provide affordable, online solutions for Canadians participating in our ever-growing digital economy.

Hosts can purchase coverage directly online and on-demand, only paying for the days they actually need their home to be covered!

Why Do I Need Additional Insurance As An Airbnb Host?

Doesn’t Airbnb Already Provide That?

Airbnb offers two types of coverage for renters using their platform: “Host Protection Insurance” and “Host Guarantee Protection”. While these types of coverages are a great start and will protect you in the event of certain accidents, they are not meant to replace an actual insurance policy. Airbnb even recommends that hosts purchase their own coverage to ensure they are completely protected throughout their experience using the platform.

Here are a few additional reasons why getting Airbnb insurance is so important:

  • Many home insurance policies do not cover short-term rental property activity (like renting your space on Airbnb).
  • To protect yourself and your home, it’s important to have an insurance policy that is under your specific name. 
  • Proper Airbnb hosting insurance will protect you from the unique challenges hosts face, like vandalism and malicious damage.

Individual circumstances may vary. You may wish to contact the licensed insurer’s representative or a licensed insurance agent if you need advice about your insurance needs. For more information, check out our blog to learn more about Airbnb’s “Host Guarantee”.

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.

Testimonials

Look at what our customers are saying about Duuo!

Very simple and easy with an affordable premium rate. Fills the gap related to the short term rental of our cottage that is left by our existing insurance policy. Thank you for a simple solution and piece of mind that you can't find with "traditional" policies.

Duuo is a great insurance. I only pay when I need it. You can purchase insurance online and when my barbecue blew up they paid the claim in about 2 weeks. I am very happy, great idea.

Linda Simopoulos
Very pleased, so far, with the ease of using Duuo to cover each guest in my Short Term Rental! The process is painless and fast to obtain coverage, and the price is affordable. I truely appreciate receiving an "end if policy" reminder at each checkout! It reminds me to buy another policy for the next guest checking in!
Linda Tomilson
So far I really like using Duuo. It is a newer offering that I use for my cottage when I Airbnb it. It only charges for the nights I rent, and the coverage is exactly what I was looking for. I don't need commercial insurance when I use Duuo! Highly recommend it.
