Protect your place with short-term rental insurance
If you rent your residence or rooms in your home through a service provider such as Airbnb, HomeAway®, VRBO®, onefinestay, or FlipKey®, you may have a coverage gap. Homeowners insurance policies may not cover homesharing and neither do many service providers.
If you're hosting a short-term rental and don't have landlord insurance or other applicable coverage, Progressive Homeshare insurance by Slice can help protect your home, valuables, and homeshare business. Best of all, it's coverage that you can turn on and off—you only pay for the days you're actually renting out your home.

What Progressive Homeshare Insurance by Slice covers
Belongings, liability, and medical payments coverages are included. Plus, you get 18 coverages specifically for homeshare—16 of which are without a deductible.
Standard insurance coverages
If you're responsible for injuries to someone else or damage to their property, you're protected under the liability portion of your policy. For example, if you don't properly repair your steps and a guest trips, liability will cover you if you're sued, up to your policy's limits.
Your belongings inside your home are covered, from silverware and clothing, to your furniture and flat-screen TV.
We hope you'll always be safe. But if a guest causes injury to you, this coverage will pay up to $10,000 for your medical expenses.
Specialty homeshare insurance coverages
Loss of income
This benefit will replace the income you lose when you can't rent your house while it's being repaired after a covered claim.
Excess use of utilities
Worried that a guest will download hundreds of gigabytes of data while at your home, causing your internet bill to skyrocket? This coverage will pay for that, up to $1,000 for all utilities combined.
If a guest brings in a pest such as bed bugs, this will pay up to $5,000 for fumigation and to replace damaged property, including mattresses.
Liquor liability coverage
What if your guest over-serves alcohol or serves to a minor? If that happens at your place, this will cover your liability for any resulting injuries or property damage, up to $500,000.
If you're a victim of ID fraud, this coverage pays for the expenses necessary to correct records and monitor your credit.
