The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I have been a hoste in Airbnb since 2014 but I have been a guest since 2012. Is the best thing I have done when traveling to Europe on a budget with my little girl we were in the most beutiful places we could of stay without paying and arm and a leg. Please understand security was the must importance for me since I was traveling with a child. The hostes where I stood in ( Italy,Belgium , Spain , Puerto Rico ) where so helpful, will let us know where to visit, and also were we shouldn't go for security reasons , for that I'm so grateful to Airbnb. As a host I benefit since my husband and I recently separated. It pay 75 % of my mortgage other wise I would have to let our home go since I could afford The best thing is you can choose the person you are renting to. Read about their experiences they had with other people. Love the fact a back ground check is done. I will never accept a gentlemen in my house because of my daughter and that is ok too. Please help us to continue with this program other wise a lot of people will be affected. Yvette
