05.Uber and Airbnb aren’t Safe
Uber and Airbnb are one of the prime examples of the current advancements in respective technologies. One is a great taxi service and other is making its name in all kinds of travel bookings. Now, there are a lot of inevitable stories that are circulating in press worldwide. However, when travelers utilize the sharing economy, they are given a large safety net. With Uber, you get a photo of your driver, and a permanent record of your journey with that driver; you can track where you are at all times, and there’s no cash to be paid. Taxis can’t do that. With Airbnb, there’s a review system, photos are verified (unlike hotel brochures), hosts are vetted, and you (usually) have the backing of a major company if anything goes wrong.
