Hurricane insurance can be a confusing subject. What many property owners may not realize is that no single insurance policy will fully cover you from hurricane-related losses. In fact, you may require a mix of different coverages to ensure that your vacation rental home has the insurance it needs to survive a potentially devastating hurricane season.
So you’ve decided to start renting out your vacation home. You’ve got your listing up and running, started all of your social media accounts and you’re ready for the bookings to start pouring in. But wait—does your short-term rental have everything it needs to make your business successful?

Ah, fall: The season of warm drinks and crisp air is upon us. For all of its merits, the beginning of fall is bittersweet as many vacation rentals across the U.S. close up shop for the winter. An exciting summer season has come and gone, and that steady stream of income you’ve enjoyed over the warm weather months is drying up.
But not so fast.
While most vacation rental business owners see the off-season as a slog they merely have to survive, it doesn’t HAVE to be that way. There are many ways you can continue to book up your rental long after peak season has passed. By taking advantage of the benefits of off-season travel, you’ll be sure to attract fall travelers on the hunt for a memorable autumn getaway.
