By law and under the mandatory Code of Conduct for the Short-term Rental Accommodation Industry, owners of a holiday rental property must have appropriate insurance in place.
The code of conduct mandates insurance for injury or death at your property but we suggest a policy that covers all of the following:
- building and contents
- public liability of $20m
- accidental damage
- malicious damage
- loss of rental income

The Holidays Collection can recommend the following insurers as a starting point for finding a suitable policy:
