    Enjoy the premium increases, won't you?

    A couple new lines for everyone's insurance policy: key and/or combination locks must be changed between every tenancy/short term rental. And outdoor unsecured items will no longer covered for theft at such properties.

    As someone who runs an Airbnb, changing the combination after each guest sounds like a nightmare.

    I try to minimise the chances of this happening by not giving out the info until the day before their booking is due to commence, but I don't fool myself that they couldn't come back afterwards.

    Some hosts have theirs automated so that the key location and combination is sent out the day the booking is made. No thanks! All they need to do once they have it is cancel the booking.

    You can get electronic locks that you can change the code remotely these days - problem solved.

    What do they cost?

    I presume they'd need to be installed by a locksmith?

    Check out the Yale Assure SL range, for insurance purposes I'd certainly get a locksmith to install and you do need to have a degree of technical nous to setup :-)

    While those would be great in some setups, it wouldn't be workable for me.

    I've stayed in plenty of motels with an old fashioned metal key so I'm not sure why this is suddenly a big thing.

    The big thing is that most motels don't hide the key under the rock next to the flower pot, remain unoccupied for days at a time and therefore much less likely to be a target for a returning lightfingered guest.

    Not to mention on-site cleaners, receptionists, security cameras and owner/operators.
