Allstate HostAdvantage

Peace of mind for home-sharing hosts

Renting out your home can be a great way to earn extra cash, but hosting temporary guests can also expose you to some unexpected and costly risks. Now with HostAdvantage, Allstate is the first major insurer to offer coverage specially designed to help protect your belongings as a home-sharing host.

Help Keep Your Belongings Out of Harm’s Way

When home sharing, you may encounter situations where your belongings are stolen or damaged by guests. Allstate HostAdvantage can help you avoid those out-of-pocket costs, while giving you the peace of mind and tools to be a successful host.

Help keep your belongings safe from theft:

  • You come home to find some of your things are missing, and the only people with access were the renters.
  • A thief breaks in and steals your stuff while the renters are staying there.

Protect yourself against personal property damage:

  • Your renter accidentally spills on your rug.
  • Your renter’s children accidentally crack your TV screen.

Add HostAdvantage to a Home Policy

As a home-sharing host, you hope renters will treat your space with as much care as you do. Allstate HostAdvantage can help you replace your stuff in case your experience doesn’t go as planned. For as little as $50 per year, you can help protect your belongings by adding HostAdvantage to your House & Home policy.

Help Protect Yourself From Unpredictable Guests

Even the most charming guests can be unpredictable. Get a glimpse into some of the risks you may face as a home-sharing host, and how HostAdvantage can help:



ALLSTATE IS VERY UNETHICAL IN THEIR BUSINESSS DEALINGS. The Allstate customer advocate, Billy, seemed very unhelpful, and racist, in my recent encounter with the rep / company. I am a minority and take pride in respect, and fair treatment. Billy lacked both.

Don’t trust Allstate!

So I used to have my home and auto with Allstate but I chose another insurance company that gave me cheaper rates for the same coverage. The effective date was April 12 and I called my Allstate agent Erica Leon in El Paso on April 11 to cancel effective the next day. No problem, she said. And by the way she never told me I owed $128. No bill in the mail neither. Next thing I knew, I get a letter from a collection agency that I owed the $128! I’m trying to protect my credit rating so this really gets my goat. I told Erica that this was underhanded. Her response? “We’ll, unless you expect me to pay it out of my pocket,” etc. etc. Also, when you try calling the corporate office, the call goes right back to this woman! I am also filing a complaint with the Texas Attorney General’s Consumer Affairs office. This type of business practice needs to be stamped out.

I really wanted to like AllState but you all go completely against your slogan, and I did NOT feel as if I was in good hands. It was ridiculous trying to get answers and an understanding of my policy and cancellation process. I simply needed a yes or no answer and the reps seemed to think it was okay to give open-ended answers and became short with me when I simply asked for an explanation of what it meant. Never again, I should've listened to my family. If you want better feedback, start with some of your policies, protocol, and management. You definitely don't have the customers in mind.
