How Crowdsourcing is Taking the Headache Out of Travel
PSFK examines how collaborative consumption is redefining the travel experience.
Peer-to-peer marketplaces are redefining the way people travel by establishing new services that forgo traditional providers in favor of individual or community-based transactions. By connecting like-minded people around shared needs, affinities and experiences, these collaborative business models promote local authenticity, while offering more cost-effective and efficient options around essential aspects of travel like transportation, accommodation and internet access. These technologies and services are part of a larger trend PSFK calls ‘Peer-To-Peer Travel Services’. This trend is part of a larger framework describing how PSFK sees the Future of Travel.
