Frequently Asked Questions for Holiday Home Insurance France – FAQs

What Insurance do I need for a holiday let in France?

As the risks associated with insurance for your own home are different to those associated with renting out your property as a holiday home, you will often need to get specialist Holiday home insurance to cover these specific risks that are not covered under or excluded under a standard home insurance policy.

What insurance do I need for Airbnbs in France?

Airbnb offer their hosts ‘Host Protection Insurance’ up to $1 million per rental to provide hosts with liability coverage and where applicable their landlords subject to certain terms, conditions and limitations. They also provide a free ‘host guarantee’ that covers damage to the host’s home or property caused by guests, up to $1million subject to numerous terms and conditions. This however is not insurance and Airbnb states that it “should not be considered a replacement or stand-in for homeowners or renters’ insurance” – click here to find out more. This also does not mean that it will cover everything and therefore it is always a good idea to get holiday home insurance that covers Airbnb lettings that meet your property requirements to ensure you have the protection you require. 

Do I need Public Liability Insurance for a holiday let in France?

Unlike an employer legally being required to have Employers Liability Insurance, there is no legal requirement for a holiday homeowner to have public liability insurance. However, if a guest staying in your let property were to sustain an injury from an accident whilst staying in your property you could be left substantially out of pocket from an expensive medical bill. Therefore it is always a good idea to include Public Liability Insurance on your Holiday Home Insurance policy.

House Rebuild Costs

When taking out Home Insurance, you are insuring your house for the cost of rebuilding it to the same standard as it is now, you are not insuring it for its value on the open market. When quoting you for a Home Insurance policy we will ask you for the rebuild cost of your home.

If you are not sure how much it would cost to rebuild your home then you can either have a rebuild cost assessment carried out by a Chartered Surveyor (which some insurers prefer) or you can use the house rebuild cost calculator below.
