Renting with sharing economy platforms like Airbnb, Stayz & TripAdvisor - how safe is it?

There’s always risk.

Many recognised sharing economy platforms like Airbnb, Stayz, TripAdvisor, FlipKey,, HomeAway, and L'Abode offer some guidance for renters around safety. For example, Airbnb provides some safety tips hosts can follow.

Ultimately though, the safety of your property can never be guaranteed. When you rent it to short-term guests it can, however, be covered - this is why ShareCover exists. To give you peace of mind when you rent your property on sharing platforms.
