Talking About Homesharing

Talking about Homesharing with super hosts Anju and Paulo video

We asked two homeshare hosts to tell us about their experience of homesharing. Anju explained how originally she converted her loft into a useable room to give her family extra space, but then decided to rent it to guests as a source of additional income. Since then, many guests have become friends and one or two have effectively become part of the family.

Paulo told us how he enjoys homesharing because he can meet new people, but he's unimpressed by messy guests and even less impressed by a couple who managed to break his home’s air conditioning.

As we’ve heard from these hosts, there are some great things about homesharing, but also some not so great things.

We’ve teamed up with Slice to offer on-demand Homeshare Insurance specifically designed for homeshare hosts to provide protection for properties that a rental platform can’t. That includes cover for the likes of vandalism, malicious damage and water damage. And the real beauty is that you only pay for it when you have guests, so you’ll know you have that extra cover outside of your usual Home Insurance policy.
