We protect you from the stuff that might happen when you have paying guests, exchange partners or house sitters to stay.
Definition: When your guest purposefully damages your home
Example: Graffiti, organised ‘open house’ party, vandalism
Definition: When your guest has an unexpected incident that damages your home or stuff
Example: Spilling a glass of wine, knocking a picture off the wall
Definition: When your guest, or someone else, takes your stuff home with them
Example: Burglar Betty, who might be your guest, or who might have snuck in when your guest left a window or front door open by mistake, making off with your cheese fondue set
Definition: When your guest has an accident or suffers an injury in or around your home
Example: A ceiling collapses or they fall down the stairs
Definition: When your guests cause damage to a neighbouring property
Example: Damage to a downstairs flat after the bath taps were accidentally left on
Definition: Covering you even when guests may, or may not, have been involved
Example: Was the damage caused by the guest, contributed too or was just it a leaking pipe?

Most platform guarantees do not replace your insurance policy, and at best will only cover damage directly attributable to the guest, this creates those grey areas!
Your existing insurer is likely to suspend or restrict cover, and even if they say it’s OK, this doesn’t mean you have the extra cover needed for the new risks. With GUARDHOG there’s no need to replace your existing insurance and we protect you when accidents happen.
It depends on you, your home and the stay.
Most pay £1-3 per day
As an example, a host put cover in place for their 2-bed flat on Waterloo Street in Brighton this morning for 4 nights for £5.97, or £1.49 per night.
You only pay for the nights guests stay
Putting cover in place for every stay would be a real ‘boar’ so we’ve built some neat tech to do it for you. Sign up to GUARDHOG, choose Autohog, and then we can automatically cover each and every stay.
It’s fuss free with no annual commitments.
Cutting through the swill…
Please read our policy wording before you purchase our cover.
You need to have valid underlying insurance in place, and you should let your existing insurer know you’re home-sharing
Let us know if you need help with annual cover
We replicate your existing policy limits (so there is no drop in cover provided)
We have a £250 excess and a £1,000 minimum claim – insurance is there for the big things rather than a broken wine glass
I couldn’t be happier to have discovered GUARDHOG, they have taken away the stress and worry of insuring my home while having airbnb guests to stay and hosting paying guests.
The team were incredibly helpful and reassuring and the website is straightforward and easy to use. Thank you so much!
At last, a simple, jargon free, on demand insurance for home sharers. Thank you GUARDHOG!
