Uber cannot be compared with AirBnB. Here are two major differences between them. Owners set their own price on AirBnb. Uber sets the cheap and dirty low fare. Uber calls drivers its partners or independent contractors! Drivers even cannot set their own prices. AirBnB takes 3% from every transaction. Uber takes 28-40% from the trip fare.
