40 Phenomenal Rental Innovations

From Napping Stations to Luxury Vacation Rentals

— August 25, 2011 — Luxury
Renting is certainly in vogue whether it is to grab a few minutes of sleep in a napping stations or enjoying the finer things in life with luxury vacation rentals. Another unique renting concept that you are sure not to see any time soon is the celebrity hom rentals.

Luxury vacation rentals are something that I would certainly like to be able to afford but you are more likely to catch me renting a bike via my mobile phone. Forget about buying things, renting is the way to go.

Implications - The eco movement and the recent economic downturn has made consumers think about the value of collective consumption. By renting rather than buying, consumers can save money and own less things, which translates into less carbon emissions. Companies should take this mindset into account when launching a new service.
