Do sharing economy platforms allow rental properties to be used for commercial purposes, like photo-shoots?

You should refer to the each specific sharing economy platform's terms and policies on the allowed uses of a rented property during a guest's stay.

Guest use of listed properties for business or trade purposes - for example for a photoshoot or video-shoot, organised by a company - may not be permitted. Check out the websites of recognised platforms to find out! AirbnbStayzTripAdvisorFlipKeyBooking.comHomeAwayL'Abode.

As far as ShareCover goes - our policies will not cover damage or loss arising from any use of your home for any business, trade or profession outside of the ordinary use of the home for temporary residential accomodation. Business photoshoots, film-making, and other activities are not covered - for more information on this see the link below. For further clarification on this, please see our Product Disclosure Statement.
