The current COVID-19 crisis has had a significant impact on the short-term rental sector and the way that the GUARDHOG team is operating. Whilst your enquiry remains important to us our team is currently significantly reduced in number and working remotely, so our phonelines are currently unavailable. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your query and we will get back to you within 24 hours.
Platforms like Airbnb strongly encourage you to put your own insurance in place, and state clearly the whole risk remains with you.
