AirBnB bordering our target audience

Did you know about https://www.airbnb.co.uk/openhomes ?

We could step into that business too.

It would broaden the scope of couchers and that surely is a good idea. Many people prefer to pay something for accommodation, especially for extended stays which is something many hosts steer away from.

I think the ‘openhomes’ initiative of airbnb is for free.

I also remember Couchsurfing came into the news because it asked its members to offer shelter after some natural disasters.

Very cool initiative. I personally think it’d be within our scope. Definitely a project for down the line though for when we have enough users to implement this properly. I imagine we’d want to partner with other organisations that advocate for helping and provide resources for people in these situations.
