The sharing economy has brought significant changes to the travel industry. Travelers are increasingly comfortable with the convenience and value offered by sharing economy companies for ridesharing (Uber, Lyft, RelayRides, GetAround) and lodging (Airbnb, CouchSurfing, OneFineStay).
Among business travelers, a recent survey indicated that 44% used sharing economy options for lodging while 66% used sharing economy options for ground transportation.
