Home insurance when renting one room

Hi, I have just started Air BnB renting out one bedroom and ensuite. 

Can anyone advise on what I need to put on insurance policy please? 

I have put 'self-employed '

What do I put as my Job Title? 

What do I put as my business type? 

I know Air BnB already provide insurance cover for my Air BnB room. 

If I put that I am a Landlord the price shoots up, as if it assumes that my whole home is being rented! 

Any advice welcome please. 

Thanks, RJ

You need to get home insurance for short term lets @Rhonda-Jayne0  the insurance company should be able to advise on how to complete ?

@Rhonda-Jayne0 I would not rely on Airbnb especially as Aircover for damage is NOT an insurance policy.
