The homestay environment includes some unique liability exposures that are not generally covered by standard home and contents insurance policies. Homestay Host/Student liability insurance is a speciality product that is not readily available in the insurance market. Vanessa will discuss what liability insurance is and why it is needed for the homestay environment. She will identify the type of exposures that a liability policy covers and the exposures it does not cover.
