MOVE OVER AIRBNB
Everyone’s heard of Airbnb but it’s certainly not the only rent-your-own-home app.
Three others currently making inroads are Overnight, FlipKey and OneFineStay. Overnight allows you to rent “same-day stays” from mates on your social networks, giving you the option to crash on your Instagram pal’s Brooklyn couch, so it’s good value and great for those last minute trips. FlipKey (owned by TripAdvisor) does the same thing as Airbnb except in the high-end home-share market – so think super nice houses in wannabe locations. Which is pretty similar to OneFineStay, an app that focuses on plush stays in New York, Paris, London, Rome and Los Angeles and takes on all responsibility of renting your place out for you. Whether they’ll outdo Airbnb remains to be seen, but they’re certainly going to give them a run for their money.
