Why you need GUESTCOVER
Over 7% of guests have been scammed over a non-existent short-term rental property, and 25% have arrived at properties that are not how they were described. In addition, there are a number of things that can go wrong with a short-term rental booking which leaves the guest stranded and out of pocket.
What can go wrong
These are just a few examples of things that could go wrong:
The property’s boiler breaks so you cannot stay as there is no heating or hot water. You are refunded by the host but similar properties in the same area are more expensive to book at the last minute.
You arrive at the property and it is unrecognisable from the pictures on the listing.
The host has a family emergency and so needs to remain in their home which you have booked for your own holiday. They refund you, but you need to pay for another property in the same area and prices have gone up.
You book and pay for a property but arrive and find it does not exist.
