How does this compare to business or homeowners insurance?

Peerspace has designed a policy specifically tailored to provide coverage for short-term space use. This policy supplements and expands the coverage available under the host’s existing business or homeowners policy. We automatically provide this insurance to hosts for no additional charge on all Peerspace bookings to allow hosts to accept transactions with peace of mind. This insurance is not a replacement for insurance that hosts normally carry on their business or residence (i.e. a homeowners, or commercial general liability policy).

Who is covered by Peerspace Host Insurance?

All Peerspace hosts are covered for all bookings that have been transacted through the Peerspace platform and adhere to the Peerspace Services Agreement. Bookings made outside the Peerspace marketplace are in violation of this agreement and will not qualify for this insurance coverage. As a result, we strongly recommend that hosts keep all messaging and transactions solely through the Peerspace platform for hosts’ safety, support, and protection.
