Belong Safe: New Insurance Option for Sharing Economy Lodging

After I wrote a few things about home exchange insurance the founders of a new insurance company, Belong Safe, reached out to tell me about their host insurance service. This company, which launched in 2016, is for people who are renting out their home on peer-to-peer platforms like Airbnb and want to make sure they are fully […]

Why metasearch for peer-to-peer rental lodging is so challenging

This post should really be titled: Airbnb won’t play nicely with metasearch engines After posting my review of peer-to-peer lodging metasearch engines, featuring my recommendation that people use the ones that include Airbnb in their search, someone behind the scenes at one of these companies reached out to me to explain that most sites displaying […]

Peer to Peer Motorhome Rentals: save money and see the world with your bed in your car

I have a soft spot for the concept of motorhomes. It seems so fun to be self-contained in a vehicle; you can go anywhere, and your bed is right there with you. In this vein, about five years ago my wife got me a campervan for my birthday. It was a homemade version: an old Dodge cargo […]

Peer-to-Peer Rental Lodging Metasearch Fails

I wrote a comparison of peer-to-peer lodging sites recently, proclaiming that I didn’t see a reason NOT to use them. Why limit yourself to just one site when you could simultaneously search across more listings? Well I put this theory to the test recently for my trip to Colombia. I did a search on AirBnb for […]

These search engines are popular in many aspects of travel; think Expedia, Kayak, and other similar sites. And in sharing economy travel metasearch is a growing area.
