Partner Liability Insurance
Partner Liability Insurance is a programme available to partners with a residential or home-like property, or properties. It’s designed to protect you against third-party lawsuits or liability claims for bodily injury or guest property damage incurred during a stay booked through our platform. For example, if a guest is injured during their stay, this accident may be eligible for a claim under the programme.
What's in this article
Partner Liability Insurance is a programme that provides you with primary liability coverage for all stays booked through our platform, at no additional cost. If you don’t already have a liability policy, this policy responds first if someone makes a claim against you. If you do already have a liability policy for your property, then consider this additional coverage on top of that policy.
Here’s how it works:
- Your home-like property is covered as soon as it’s listed on our platform. Coverage will apply for all guest stays booked through our platform that take place on or after 31 March 2022, as long as you remain opted in to the programme during stay dates.
- This programme provides potential protection against liability claims from guests and third parties worth up to €1.000.000 for the European Economic Area, £1.000.000 for the UK and $1.000.000 for the rest of the world for eligible claims.
- There are no additional charges and your commission fees will not change because of membership in the programme.
- You can opt out of and back into the programme at any time.
Exclusions apply. Please visit the Partner Liability Insurance section of our platform for more information, as well as a look at the FAQs.
