Listing your home or apartment on Airbnb can be both a fun and lucrative endeavor. Money earned from hosting just a few days a month can put a serious dent in your rent payment or finance your own travel plans. Chances are, if you’re planning to list on Airbnb, you’ve probably already researched how take great photos of your listing and thought about the drinks and snacks you’ll provide. But before you book your first guest, it’s important to ensure your safety by following a few simple Airbnb host safety tips.

Understanding Your Insurance Options

Airbnb provides a Host Protection Package and along with it comes a $1 million guarantee. This free liability insurance is designed to protect you against third-party claims of personal injury and property damage. Though incidents are rare, having appropriate insurance can provide you great peace of mind. There are several options out there for supplemental or standalone short-term rental insurance and they’re worth taking a look at before you get started.

Utilize the Guest Requirements Feature

Whether you choose to require a security deposit to protect your personal belongings or if you want to restrict your guests from having guests of their own, that’s your right as the host. In addition, requiring that potential guests have a Verified ID is a smart way to be sure that your guests are who they say they are.

Spell it Out in Your House Rules

Another way to ensure your safety and the safety of your belongings is by explaining what you expect of your guests in your House Rules. If you don’t want them to throw a party, bring over unapproved guests, smoke on the premises, or bring their pets along, it’s best to explain it in detail ahead of their visit.
