Peer to Peer Airport Parking/Rentals to return to the U.S.

As peer-to-peer car sharing gains popularity, it’s still a very small market. Many people are afraid to rent out their car to strangers. The logistics are sometimes complicated. And in my calculations it’s often not cheaper than a commercial rental. But I remain a big fan of this concept for airport parking. If you need […]

Rent out your parking space to make money while traveling

I haven’t written anything about peer to peer parking yet. This is because I figured parking was mostly relevant to locals in a city. But then Parqex reached out to me on twitter to suggest that travelers can make money renting out their parking spots. That’s a twist I hadn’t thought about. I’ve written about the opportunity […]

Delivering Werewolf to Kyoto

If only I really did deliver a werewolf to Kyoto. That’d be an interesting story! But in reality I just delivered the game Werewolf. It’s a fun game, and I guess it’s not available in Japan. Or at least the Ultimate Werewolf Deluxe edition isn’t available for a reasonable price. This was another PiggyBee delivery. PiggyBee is […]

Airmule launches 2.0 crowdsourced delivery site

Airmule is a social shipping company that publicly launched in mid-2016. They’ve just unveiled the 2.0 version of their website and app. Inspired by the latest product updates, I decided to list an upcoming trip on the website. I was immediately frustrated by the level of detail required for my flights. My first thought was: it’s none […]

Social shipping to London

A few weeks ago, a box of water filters showed up at my door, addressed to me. I was completely confused. I hadn’t ordered any water filters. The package was from a company I had never used. So it couldn’t be that they got my order mixed up with someone else. Why would someone order filters for […]

Courier Service Offers $300 RT Flights to China

Airmule is offering flights from Los Angeles to either Beijing or Shanghai for only $300 round trip. This deal is good for March and April. In return for this cheap price you let Airmule use your checked bags for shipping goods. Airmule delivers the luggage to you on the day of departure and meets you at the airport […]

Traveling on the Cheap: Flights, Hotels and more

If you read my last post, you saw that I managed to put together a 2 week trip to Japan (with a few days in Taipei) for two people that’s costing me very little out of pocket. We’re staying in nice hotels, and traveling (in comfort) via airplane and train, mostly using miles and points. […]

Traveling on the Cheap: Japan Case Study

I travel a lot, and I spend very little money on my travels. A big chunk of the savings comes from stuff I write about on this website: home exchanges for free lodging, ridesharing for cheap transportation, crowdsourced delivery to pick up some extra cash or other useful services (like a ride from the airport), […]

Turo for Motorcycles: an interview with the Riders Share founder

Riders Share is a peer-to-peer motorcycle rental network. Launched in 2016, they offer a service that is unique in the realm of sharing economy rentals: there are plenty of car sharing businesses, but very little in the motorcycle space. Riders Share caught my eye because I know some people who love to ride and who often talk about renting […]
