There are many traditional hotels, private hotels and other hotel services in many countries across the globe. The hotel rates have become as fancy as the rates of flight tickets and limousines, not kidding! The “fancy” hotel rates have given an extra space for Airbnb to grow stronger and wider. According to the critics, Airbnb would take over the traditional hotels in near future, but the hotel managers refuse to believe the predicted data. Recently, the San Francisco based company has been way too generous to its users. It provides many renting services to the travelers such as apartments, humongous villas, and even a freaking big castle, how cool is that? No more dreaming about living a life in castles when you actually can! Airbnb allows people to make money off their apartments and even spare rooms and it is all because of the sharing economy.
Airbnb does feel good campaigns, and it’s not for the publicity, or maybe? The company is also known for many charges and controversies. Several sources say the company is not very safe when it comes to apartment sharing services.
But honestly speaking, Airbnb poses a dangerous threat to the traditional hotels out there, and it is slowly taking down them. The largest hotel distribution network does not target the business travellers and the hotels are making money off it. The rates of hotels and apartments under Airbnb are cheaper than a private hotel. Despite all the advantages, Airbnb does not really scare the traditional hotels!
Ways to make sharing economies like Airbnb and Uber safer
The Sharing economy is the latest trend that is slowly getting popular among the public and the media. The critics say the infectious economy would soon take over other economies in near future. Remember, even a few dollars you earn from the sharing economy could fetch you a cappuccino from Star bucks! People are no longer interested to work under someone, they want to be their own bosses and manage their own shift timings, as simple as that! The sharing economy could possibly fire the corporate world because there would be no supply of full time professionals.
Airbnb is the most popular hotel distribution network that poses a serious threat to the traditional hotels. It is the widely used home renting website in many countries across the world. It is also a proud owner of controversies and most of them are caused by the hosts.
Uber is the famous online ride hailing app that offers rides for many people from different countries across the globe. It is also known for its controversies like theft of personal property, sexual harassments, etc. Nevertheless, both the firms are black markets and are looting money off its users. We need to stay protected and secured when we rent an apartment through Airbnb and take a cab from Uber app. Make a note of all the local emergency contact numbers and let your friends and family know about your plans. Most importantly, go through the reviews of your hosts and cab drivers before you make any plans.
