“The sharing economy has considerably shaken up the travel and tourism industry over the past decade and has become a threat to the traditional operating models. Consumers are increasingly looking for the most convenient solutions to save them both time and money. The sharing economy has responded with easy-to-use mobile apps and cheaper prices to meet rising consumer demands. As the world begin to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, a shift towards experiential travel and working holidays could occur and those operating within the sharing economy will be in a stronger position to keep up with ever-changing consumer needs due to the asset-light nature of the operating model”.
