About Safely

Our mission is to help you feel confident in who’s staying in your short-term rentals and protect you against damage that occurs during a guest’s stay.

Safely was founded to fill a gap in the short-term rental industry.

Andrew Bate, our CEO and co-founder, saw sophisticated homeowners leaving their secondary homes empty for up to 48 weeks each year because they were worried about letting internet strangers sleep in their beds. Andrew set out to build a team of travel, insurance, technology, and data science experts to create a product that improved the chance of a safe stay and protected homeowners and property managers in case things went wrong.

Today, we’ve partnered with the best insurance carriers, background check, and short-term rental technology providers to create an ecosystem of trust, care, and data to make the sharing economy safer than ever.

Our Team

At Safely, our people are what make the difference. Unlike traditional insurance providers, filing a claim isn’t a hassle because on the other side of every email or phone call is a Safely team member who will give your issue the attention it deserves. With experience in every sector, from Insurtech and data science to vacation rental property management and SaaS development, our team brings a wealth of knowledge and passion to the table. Every decision, from product development and sales to marketing and customer happiness, is made with our customers in mind.
