InsuraGuest signs vendor agreement with OwnerRez

InsuraGuest has signed a vendor agreement and has integrated its insurance platform API with online booking software OwnerRez .

Founded in 2009 and a team of ~10, OwnerRez is a booking management engine that integrates with channels like Vrbo, Airbnb, and to synchronize availability, rates, rules, and listing content while taking online bookings, managing inquiries, and communicating with guests. It also provides travel insurance and damage protection insurance, as well as integration with QuickBooks, and property management/owner statements.

InsuraGuest coverages can now be purchased by users of OwnerRez, including professional hosts and property management companies, all of which may elect to use the InsuraGuest coverages by filling out an InsuraGuest application within the OwnerRez marketplace. Once in use, the client will use InsuraGuest’s insurance coverages for primary no-fault accidental medical and property claims made by guests. By transferring certain liabilities to the InsuraGuest coverages, the covered short-term rental properties can lower their claim ratios and risk profiles, which may decrease their umbrella liability policy and/or their homeowners’ policy premiums.

“We are excited to introduce our clients to InsuraGuest’s unique insurance offering. Unlike the other insurance products on the market, InsuraGuest is insurance that protects the property from claims made by their guests on a primary no-fault basis and is available for a per-diem rather than per-booking charge.” – Ken Taylor, OwnerRez’s Director of Operations.

“It is a pleasure to work with a Vacation Rental leader like OwnerRez, and to provide their clients with the only primary no-fault accidental medical coverage policy on the market today.” – Jennifer Epperson, VP of New Business Development for InsuraGuest Vacation Rental.
