Frequently Asked Questions

Can I cover part of my home?

Yes, with ShareCover you can choose an amount of cover that only includes the area you rent out, instead of your whole home and everything in it.

Are payments tax deductible?

Your premiums might be tax deductible when you let relevant tax authorities know about your rental income. Please seek independent financial or tax advice from a licensed professional such as an accountant.

How much does ShareCover cost?

The average cost of a policy is less than $8 a night, depending on how much cover you choose.

Every property is different and prices change based on a lot of different factors. The quickest way to find out how much you’ll pay is to get a quote.

When you are trusting strangers with the largest asset that you own, your home… you want peace of mind. ShareCover gives me just that! I can leave them in my home knowing that I am covered.

Amanda from Wombat Ridge, NSW

We were sceptical at some of the claims made by some of the accommodation platforms about included coverage. Many of our stays are only for a single night and the ShareCover platform has been great for us. We have peace of mind knowing we have the cover when we need it.
