MyVR partners with Assurant

Cloud-based software solution for short-term rental property managers MyVR announced a new partnership with Assurant to launch a “unique, fully integrated damage protection solution,” designed specifically for short-term property managers and offered exclusively on the MyVR platform.

“Damage protection has evolved greatly over the last decade and we studied the various models in the marketplace and solicited extensive feedback from clients before we finalized this offering and chose Assurant as our partner. Each marketing channel has their own version of protection and it was very difficult to scale across a portfolio and inconsistent across channels. We wanted our clients to be able to offer their guests and homeowners peace of mind regardless of where the booking occurred. Our unique offering with Assurant allows property managers to choose varying levels of protection based on the value of the home and potential replacement cost of furnishings instead of the one size fits all approach taken by other providers. This allows our clients to provide their guests with the right level of coverage at a price that encourages conversion.” – Mike Stachowiak, Co-founder and CTO of MyVR.

“Usage-based vacation rental protection delivers customizable risk management solutions to make vacation rental transactions simple while giving property owners and their renters peace of mind. Our partnership with MyVR is another example of our sharing economy products empowering innovative companies.” – Kunal Malhotra, Vice President of Global Specialty Innovation at Assurant.
