Damage Protection

Damage Protection

PriceFrom $42.00

Although rare, guest damage can happen. Traditionally, this was managed via a security deposit or a settlement through the booking website. Both are cumbersome, involve the lots of back and forth,and are limited to “accidental damage” of contents only.

With damage protection, damage is damage. Damage from a guest is covered unless it’s specifically excluded such as normal wear and tear, mechanical breakdown, odor, maintenance or infestation.

This waiver does not negate the responsibilities of a renter for items outside of Waivo's responsibilities.


How It Works:

At the time of booking, the guest will pick a coverage amount be be charged a small nonrefundable damage protection fee, and the protection is outlined in the guest’s rental agreement. During the post-stay inspection of the property, if guest damage is found, a damage notice is submitted by the property manager online.

The damage notice is promptly reviewed and reimbursement is made. You, the guest, don't have to do anything!
