Don't let safety concerns dampen your holiday spirit and turn into risk-mas. From security systems to smoke alarms, here are 12 days of safety measures for every vacation rental property.
While most users on sites such as Airbnb and Vrbo are genuine people looking for a rental, there are still thieves and con artists with hopes of stealing. As hackers become increasingly sophisticated, short-term rental businesses need to stay ahead of the game and ensure their safety online and in real life.
As we approach the second half of 2023 and are in the thick of peak season, we’ve already experienced some exciting industry wins. With no COVID travel restrictions, revenge travel taking off and even more short-term rentals entering the market, the next 6 months are predicted to be full of success.

Imagine booking a guest with manners and characteristics of a gigantic-furred yeti. It’s exactly what claims professionals fear most. The abominable snowman creature aimlessly wanders about with no clear objective and little consideration for the care of your property.
Nothing says fall like the sight of leaves on the ground, open windows throughout the property and the sweet smell of pumpkin spice! It’s a good time to prepare and deep clean your property for the cooler months. Don’t let the idea of cleaning for the season overwhelm you. Small actions now can help ensure everything goes smoothly for you and your renters.
It may be that time of year to renew your vacation rental policy or simply assess your current insurance situation. Even in the off-season, having a strong, comprehensive policy is key to keeping your business safe from the unforeseen.
Even if you’re allowed to rent out your home or condo through Airbnb, doing so can cause tension with neighbors and the HOA. There’s always the potential that your guests may not be respectful to property in common areas, act inappropriately or noisily, or make other tenants feel uncomfortable.
Many people are distressed when they file a vacation rental insurance claim given that these claims typically follow a devastating event such as a home fire, disastrous weather or a guest injury. To help you file a claim with ease, we’ve compiled some useful information to make the best of this trying experience.
As a rental property owner, it’s crucial to take the time to routinely address potential safety risks on your property. After all, even seemingly minor household issues — such as stray cords, dust buildup or leaky faucets — can spiral into significant problems if left unnoticed. By conducting an annual safety audit, you can help keep your property safe and secure — reducing the risk of guest injuries, lawsuits, property damage and costly insurance claims.
