Advantages of AXA's rental guarantee

  • Affordable annual premium
  • 10% combination discount with personal liability insurance
  • No hidden charges

How does a rental guarantee work?

With a rental guarantee from AXA you have free access to your savings instead of having to deposit the amount for the full duration of the lease. We pay your landlord any justified claims such as damage or unpaid rent. We subsequently claim this amount back from you.

Quick procedure

  • Take out a rental guarantee from AXA.
  • You receive a confirmation of receipt of your application straight away.
  • The landlord receives the surety within three to five working days.


  • Annual fee: 4% of the guarantee amount
  • No initial fee
  • 10% combination discount on the rental deposit when taking out personal liability insurance from AXA
  • Free adjustment if you change your rental circumstances, e.g. new landlord
  • After consultation with the landlord: can be terminated at any time with prorated repayment of the annual premium already paid


  • Requirement for the AXA rental deposit is personal liability insurance, as this already covers a lot of damage to your rental apartment. 
  • You can also apply for an AXA rental deposit if you have taken out your personal liability policy with another insurance company. You will not benefit from the combination discount in this case.

Combination discount and service advantage

  • Requirement: Personal liability insurance
  • Personal liability insurance from AXA: You receive a 10% discount on the annual premium of the rental guarantee and we automatically clarify whether any damage by tenants is covered.

Conversion of a rental deposit

  • If you already have or take out personal liability insurance from AXA, you will get a 10% discount on the annual premium of your rental deposit.
  • We also automatically check for you whether your AXA personal liability covers any tenant damages. We carry out these checks after we have paid your landlord’s claim.

Support and frequently asked questions

  • What is a rental guarantee from AXA?

    A rental guarantee from AXA is not an insurance but a type of surety, for which you pay an annual premium.

  • Is the landlord at any disadvantage from a rental guarantee?

    For landlords, a rental guarantee from AXA offers the same protection as a traditional deposit with a bank. The surety reaches the landlord three working days after the tenant signs the agreement. Moreover, he knows for certain that the tenant has taken out personal liability insurance.

    We issue payment immediately if there is a claim due to unpaid rent or damage to the apartment, for example. For this, the signatures of the tenant and the landlord are needed.

  • Are my premiums used in order to pay off the deposit?

    No, your premiums compensate AXA for its willingness to cover, up to a certain amount, any damage to the apartment or any rental fees you may owe during the contract term.

  • What is the maximum guarantee amount?

    AXA's rental guarantee is limited to CHF 20,000.
