As one of London's oldest established short-term rental agencies, we are always looking for quality houses and apartments in the Central London area to meet the needs of our discriminating visitors who come to London throughout the year.
Instead of staying in a bland and anonymous hotel environment, our visitors prefer the sense of living like a Londoner in a real home. If you decide to let them stay in your property you can be assured they will look after it. There is no need to hide away all your personal belongings.
Having been in the business for over 26 years, we know what we’re talking about when it comes to looking after your homes and increasing your bank balance so here’s a simple breakdown of what we do:
Home From Home, together with GUARDHOG, have specifically created a new insurance product to cover hosts when they have paying guests to stay.
GUARDHOG's home-sharing insurance, Host Cover, is on-demand, pay by the stay 'full-fat' home insurance that covers the risks of having paying guests. GUARDHOG have designed the cover so that it dovetails with your existing home and contents insurance. And, there is no need to make any changes to your existing policy.
GUARDHOG's home-sharing Host Cover insurance covers:
- Malicious and accidental damage
- Theft by the guest and unforced entry
- Public liability
- Buildings and contents, and
- Communal areas.
As one can never be certain exactly what your existing insurance will do in the event of a claim when it's unrelated to a guest, the policy states that if something is specifically excluded because of guests staying, you will be covered. For example, if there is a storm, your home floods and your insurer won't pay because you had guests staying, then the GUARDHOG policy will.
The costs vary depending on the host and the property, but start from as little as £2 per night as long as your using Home From Home.
We're not the experts, GUARDHOG are. So please email Humphrey@guardhog.com or look at their website www.guardhog.com. We're hoping that you will take advantage of this insurance. So, to ensure it's as hassle free as possible we can set-up a feed to GUARDHOG that automatically allows them to see any new bookings. Once you have registered with GUARDHOG, simply opt for all bookings to be automatically covered. GUARDHOG will ask you if they may share your information with us; please do say yes.
The GUARDHOG insurance policy is designed to dovetail with your existing home and contents insurance. Please read the insurance documents carefully so you understand what this policy provides, as well as the limitations and exclusions. GUARDHOG is underwritten by Hiscox Limited, a global insurer with an A+ rating by Fitch.
