The sharing economy’s popularity within corporate travel can be attributed to the same factor that has launched its entrenchment in the world as a whole: convenience. Instead of queuing in a long line at the rental car vendor after an even longer flight, business travelers can open their phone and call a car directly to their hotel in minutes via rideshare apps such as Uber or Lyft.

Corporate travel policies often limited business travelers to just a few hotel options, and sometimes these options are further away from the places where travelers have their business obligations all in the name of a company partnering with a certain hotel chain.

With home-sharing platforms such as Airbnb, business travelers are able to pinpoint the most convenient lodging locations for their business obligations and find a home-sharing option that is free of being tied down by any hotel chain loyalty.
