The sharing economy has made travel a little more affordable for many—but there are undeniably risks involved. Companies often have limited control and information about who exactly is delivering the service through their platforms. Overnight addresses safety concerns with an an app that is similar to Airbnb, but helps users connect to more trustworthy people. Referring to themselves as part of the “Friend Community,” this home booking service allows verified guests connect to people in their network. In conjunction with Girls Love Travel, they specifically want to help women find lodging in which they can feel safe.

Hosts have detailed control over their listing, with the option make their homes open only to friend groups or to everyone in the Overnight community. Working with the Facebook group Girls Love Travel makes it possible for solo female travelers to find more comfortable lodgings. The group consists of over 405,000 women who want to connect with fellow female travelers to find resources, information and support. Members of this group get access to discounts for a selection of listings on Overnight, from 30% to 80% off, and a number of these listings are posted by group members.
