How to be Safe in the Sharing Economy

During the last few years, the sharing economy has been on the rise – today, it's estimated to have cumulatively raised over $8 billion in funding.

Even if trust and safety are at the very core of ventures that participate in the sharing economy models, both users and providers often face loose regulations and security measures. Here are some tips on how to stay safe when using services 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
