Airbnb 101: How to Handle Damages Caused by Guests

When people start hosting short-term rentals, especially if they’re sharing their own home, they are usually worried about two things: damaged/stolen property and parties (which can lead to damaged or stolen property)!

Unfortunately, things do happen, although less than you might think, but there are things you can do as a host to minimize any costs associated with the damage and ensure your hosting status isn’t damaged itself. 

But, really, we do want to emphasize that this happens very, very rarely — so don’t let this fear be what stops you from jumping into the short-term rental game!


Together, Annette & Sarah are the dynamic duo behind the wildly popular podcast Thanks For Visiting, co-creators of the Hosting Business Mastery Method, & seasoned short-term-rental hosts.
