From Outdoorsy Travel Rental Platforms to Wine-Themed Motels

 - Apr 30, 2018
Thanks to innovations in technology, the growth of the sharing economy and the hospitality industry's efforts to appeal to a larger audience via cost-effective hotels and loyalty programs, affordable travel experiences aren't out of reach.

While the peer-to-peer approach to traveling definitely cuts costs on accommodation and tour guides, smart technology aids the consumer in efficiently determining what the best travel deals are. In addition, mobile applications like onPony and UbiatarPlay connect people, whilst providing employment opportunities.

The affordable travel experience is largely sought-after as costs of living are genuinely rising. With younger people in mind, these innovations in the industry have a few benefits—from connecting people with different backgrounds and allowing them to exchange ideas and cultural experiences to narrowing down the most budget-friendly lodging spaces via computer algorithms.
