Crowdcube Campaign Now Live!

28 January 2015

Hello Sharers!

Today is a very big day for us here at Compare and Share, and we’d definitely like you to be part of it!  We’re taking the first step in our growth plans to turn Compare and Share into the go-to global brand of the Sharing Economy, delivering on our vision to open up the Sharing Economy just as eBay opened up the second-hand goods market… and we need your help to do just that!

Our Crowdcube campaign is now live, and this is a great opportunity for you to buy into Compare and Share and be an active player in the Sharing Economy!

Saving with the Sharing Economy: European Capitals

12 January 2015

The Holiday Season is over and a New Year is upon us, so why not get out of town for weekend or so to ease back into the thick of things?  

We thought we’d contribute to this effort by shedding some light on Sharing Economy accommodation prices compared to traditional hotels. Why pay more when you can get great deals on your stay across Europe with the Sharing Economy? No reason! Let us help you save, so there’s more to spend on gifts for friends and family. Or you could pay the same, but indulge in a significantly better place to stay, the choice is entirely yours!

Featured here are: Berlin, London, Rome, Madrid, Paris
