Insurance when renting accommodation in France

Article 8 from our general terms and conditions for the rental is mandatory when renting to French guests and is meant to draw your attention on the following point : 
Residents in France are required to have public liability insurance – “assurance responsibilite civile”, which is usually included in home insurance or available as an add-on. This covers them if they damage another person’s house. Then, the home owner claims on the individuals insurance, not their own, as French rental insurance does not cover damage caused by guests. That’s why holiday let owners may ask for proof of insurance, as its common procedure in France.
We know it may be difficult for a person based in the UK to get cover specifically designed to cover their liability for a rental in France and consequently will not require copy of insurance certificate.  A comprehensive travel insurance or home insurance policy should provide public liability insurance cover for damage to 3rd party property.
