Wealth Solutions Tackles Insurance Issues

In a recent blog post, Wealth Solutions advises its readers that there are potential insurance pitfalls that should be considered before jumping into renting on Airbnb. As explained in the post, platforms like Airbnb are becoming increasingly popular ways for homeowners to rent out rooms in their home to very short term tenants or travelers. It is certainly a lucrative proposition and a way to make some fast cash without a lot of work. Where homeowners could have a rude awakening is in finding out that their insurance policies do not cover incidents involving paid guests, such as a renter from Airbnb. If the rental qualifies as a commercial activity under your insurance policy, then you could be out of luck if you have an accident with a paid guest. Even though sites like Airbnb can offer some protection, they are not actual insurance policies and still leave homeowners exposed to plenty of liability if there is an unforeseen complication with a paid guest.
