    Airbnb Insurance cover.

    I rent a cottage. My tenant has asked to use a room for Airbnb for holiday lets.. My insurer has said it will negate the Cover they provide..They will cover for a lodger but not for Airbnb.. I rang another Insurer who provide cover but only if Airbnb is being provided within where the homeowner lives.
    But not where it is a Tenant using a room to provide for Airbnb.
    So am i right then to think i should say no as no insurance can cover this situation.Or has anyone faced the same situation and found a solution.

    Check AirBnB - tenant may already be doing it.

    But correct, don't agree and probably beaches any mortgage conditions and possibly local council regulations
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      Airbnb not a problem but as the tenant want to arrange it, it falls under the "sub-letting" category which makes most insurers run a mile. Think you will have trouble getting the cover you need, coupled with other potential issues as per above post, I think this is more hassle than it's worth.

        Say no - as it invalidates your insurance cover.
