The new insurance solution for Homeshare hosts

Homeshare Insurance is such an essential for homeshare hosts that you’ll wonder why no one thought of it before. Benefit from on-demand insurance cover that you only pay for when you have guests.

It’s as quick and easy as it sounds, giving you peace of mind that your property will be protected from the risks that come with being a homeshare host, including:

  • Vandalism
  • Malicious damage
  • Water damage

Specifically designed for homeshare rentals, Homeshare host insurance provides you with cover your rental platform or site can't, under their Host Guarantee. With Homeshare insurance you'll deal directly with an insurer in the event of a claim, just like you would with your normal home insurance policy. Plus you can rest assured you have cover for when you have guests, outside of your usual home insurance policy.

We've teamed up with Slice offering Homeshare insurance and to get covered, all you need to do is get a quote, register your details and then turn the cover on when you have guests. You can manage your policy completely online just as your rental guests do.

Homeshare Insurance is underwritten by Great Lakes Insurance SE and distributed by Slice Labs UK Limited.

In order to get Homeshare Insurance, you must have a home insurance policy that covers your home, when it’s not being rented through a homesharing rental provider. You should also check that your home insurance policy allows you to accept lodgers and occasional paying guests.

What isn't covered?

  • You must pay a £500 excess for certain property claims
  • Mobile homes, trailers or automobiles
  • Activities other than Homeshare, such as events
  • Theft of valuables if not locked away in a cupboard
  • Bicycles are only covered up to £300
  • Gradual deterioration and maintenance
  • Mold, fungus or wet rot
  • Power failure

These are only examples of the cover, limits and exclusions that apply. Every insurance policy will have limitations and exclusions so it's vital that you check what's included before you purchase. For more details of what is and isn't covered, please read the Key Documents.
