AirCover for guests and travel or reservation insurance
What is AirCover for guests?
If there’s a serious issue with your Airbnb that your Host can’t resolve, we’ll help you find a similar place, depending on availability at comparable pricing. If a similar place isn’t available or you’d prefer not to rebook, we’ll give you a full or partial refund.
AirCover for guests provides support if your Host cancels within 30 days of check-in, you’re unable to check in or the listing is significantly different than advertised and your Host can’t fix it or you feel unsafe in your Airbnb.

What is travel or reservation insurance?
Travel is rewarding, but sometimes things don’t go as expected. People can get sick, flights can get cancelled and bags can go missing. To help protect you financially, there’s travel or reservation insurance.

How AirCover for guests works with travel or reservation insurance
Here’s an example of how AirCover for guests and travel or reservation insurance can work together.
You arrive at your destination and learn that the airline has sent your luggage to the wrong city and you won’t get it back for at least 24 hours. You then check in at the place to stay and find out that the number of bedrooms at the place is less than advertised.
In this situation, AirCover for guests can help you find a new place to stay, depending on availability at comparable pricing. If you purchased travel or reservation insurance with your Airbnb reservation or booking, you can also file a claim with Generali or Europ Assistance SA to get reimbursed for certain extra things you have to buy while waiting for your luggage, such as clothing and toiletries.
