Insurance when renting, did you know…?

Who is liable if you, or a member of your party, accidently knock over a bottle of red wine on the lovely cream carpet or sofa, the bath accidentally overflows or worst case you burn down the Chalet?

  • The letting agent or operator won’t be too happy, as the next set of guests arrive on Saturday and their booking conditions will catch you out. Damages and repairs are expensive to fix at short notice in ski resorts.
  • The initial liability rests with the person named on the rental contract, regardless of who actually caused the accident. It is therefore essential to check carefully that your travel insurance covers this contractual liability.
  • Furthermore, the rental contract may stipulate that suitable insurance is in place, futhermore in France it is a legal requirement.
  • MPI’s specialist ski travel insurance covers this liability within the terms and conditions of the policy.
