Airbnb Security Advice from RACAM
Implement a Security System
The most important thing when ensuring your Airbnb property is safe enough is by implementing a security system. An effective and bespoke security system which meets the needs of your property is essential if you’re letting our your home on a regular basis. Whether you opt for a basic system or something a bit more advanced which can be accessed via an app for an example; make sure you at least have one. A security system will mean that you can monitor goings-on in the property if need be. However, you must inform guests that you have a system! Also, an effective security system will differentiate your property from others on Airbnb, and it is likely you will receive more interest for potential bookings because your property is considered more secure.
Set an Emergency Plan
Another tip we recommend to those who operate an Airbnb is to ensure you have a well thought out plan for guests to follow in the event of an emergency. Make sure they can know ways to contact you and that they are informed of local contact numbers for anyone concerned. This way you can be sure that those occupying your Airbnb understand how to go about dealing with an emergency situation.
Safe and Insurance
And finally, make sure that, if you have personal belongings still within the property, you store your most valuable possessions in a safe or keep them secured in an area that your Airbnb guests cannot access. Though it is more than likely the case that your guests aren’t thieves – don’t risk it and be too trusting – after all, they are strangers! And so, make sure you have a safe. Additionally, make sure you have the appropriate insurance.
