The Future of the Sharing Economy in Tourism - International - July 2019
“A decade ago, collaborative consumption was a relatively unknown concept and tourism-related goods and services – including accommodation, rental cars and guided tours – were booked almost exclusively through travel agents or direct with a mainstream tourism provider such as a hotel, car-rental firm or holiday letting company. The sharing economy has disrupted the tourism industry considerably in the interim and two of its biggest players – Airbnb and Uber – are now among the world’s biggest and most well-known brands. The number of tourism-related ‘shareconomy’ platforms has also grown significantly and includes things like room-sharing, ride-sharing, car-sharing, skill-sharing (in the form of guided tours, excursions and workshops), food and drink-sharing and even clothes-sharing.”
