These days new sharing economy travel companies launch every week, and I sometimes discover established businesses that I had missed. All of these get added to my spreadsheet of sharing economy travel services. Here’s the summary for July, along with some interesting news from this month.
Tours and activities
Local Guddy – yet another p2p tours and activities site. Offerings in 160+ cities. Appears to have launched in 2016. Prices are pretty low compared to other similar sites so I’ll definitely try this one out.
Your Local Cousin – a company that offers peer to peer travel tips and advice has launched tours and experiences. They currently have just a handful of tours listed in cities around the world. But they have a ton of locals offering tips and travel plans so I expect the tours and activities list will grow quickly.
HiyaCar – P2P car rentals in the UK. Just launched in 2016.
onPony – a new crowdsourced delivery business that is currently in beta launch. There are a handful of deliveries and travelers listed, all within Europe.
Shebah launched an all female peer to peer taxi service in Australia. It’s gaining popularity quickly, suggesting there is demand for this type of service.
Overnight, a peer to peer rental lodging site has launched a private Groups feature in conjunction with Girls Love Travel, which will allow this organization (and others in the future) to rent their homes only to people in their trusted network.
