Peerspace Host Insurance

Peerspace provides insurance custom built for short duration use so that hosts receive unprecedented protection when they invite others into their space.

Our coverage is known as General Liability (GL) insurance, which provides hosts with supplemental coverage protection from lawsuits brought by third parties, such as guests, alleging liability for bodily injury or damage to the guest’s property incurred during a booking. It’s automatically provided for all Peerspace bookings that comply with our Peerspace Services Agreement and includes a liability limit of $1,000,000 for all Peerspace bookings.*

We created this policy so that hosts and guests can feel secure knowing that coverage exists in qualifying circumstances. Conditions, limitations, and exclusions may apply. Visit our Support Center to learn more.

*Please note that limits shown are in USD. Coverage extends to all markets in which Peerspace currently operates, the liability limits for which are 1,000,000 of the local currency.

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. Please see our Peerspace Services Agreement for more information regarding your primary insurance requirements and rules around supplemental insurance.

Does this policy apply to hosts in different countries?

Yes! The Peerspace Host Insurance program covers hosts in any country where bookings take place. Limit amounts and exclusions may vary, but coverage is currently provided in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, and Australia.

Frequently asked questions

What sort of property damage is covered?

Under our property damage guarantee, eligible hosts with covered property damage will be reimbursed for the replacement or repair costs of host property contained within the rented venue that is damaged by a guest or attendee during a booking. Examples could include damaged furniture, floors and carpets, or host-owned production equipment.

What is the amount of damaged property that Peerspace guarantees?

The maximum value per booking is $25,000USD, and the maximum value per damaged item is $7,500USD, minus a $100 minimum that you are responsible for.

Are there types of property damage that are not covered?

Yes, damages from general wear and tear, negligence, smoking, and criminal activity are not covered. Additionally, stolen items, cash, firearms, and vehicles are not covered. Any surrounding land or adjacent property is also not covered. This guarantee only covers damages caused by a Guest for which the Guest is liable under the Peerspace Services Agreement. This guarantee does not cover damage caused by any other reason.

What’s the difference between this and your $1,000,000 host liability insurance?

Our $1,000,000 Host Insurance Policy is a general liability policy that protects qualifying hosts from lawsuits brought by third parties, such as guests, who claim they were injured or their property was damaged on-site during a booking. Unlike our property damage guarantee for hosts, it does not cover damage to your property. In addition, the Property Damage Guarantee is not insurance. It is simply an agreement from Peerspace to reimburse hosts for covered property damage for which a guest is responsible under the Peerspace Services Agreement and is unable or unwilling to pay for.

Does this guarantee apply to hosts operating outside the United States?

At this time, the property damage guarantee will only be valid for bookings within the United States. We hope to offer this exclusive new benefit to hosts in many other countries in the near future and will update with more info as soon as we can.
