Startups are broadening the concept of the sharing economy to include hourly rentals

The sharing economy is expanding beyond taxi rides and hotel alternatives with a London startup called Pop & Rest that is catering to weary travelers looking for a place to rest for just a few hours. The concept is similar to Airbnb, but with stays that are measured in hours rather than days. Hosts list their properties with a description, photos and information about availability to rent them out by the hour to travelers in need of a quick power nap or a shower.

Another company is looking to provide a restful space for your waking hours as well. Manchester-based Plot offers access to a communal rooftop garden space in the city’s center for users seeking a place to relax or gather with friends. Plot users can request and confirm reservations of up to two hours using their smartphones.
