Hi, I discovered that my normal home insurance was null and void with Airbnb. I was with Budget Direct and they could not help me at all. After lots of phone calls I found two insurance companies who will cover short term Airbnb homes. GIO wanted about $1800 but I the coverage was not amazing. I ended up going with BJS Insurers and the name of the policy is “Main Residence / Occasional Short Term Rental POLICY”.

The price was about the same as GIO but more is covered. I live in Perth but I didn’t use the regional office and dealt online instead.
No I feel secure again.
