'Make It Travel' is a new online platform where users can rent their travel equipment to others. Sharing platforms have become extremely popular in the travel industry because they provide an easy way of stretching a vacation budget. This new service allows users to rent travel equipment as a innovative way of saving money while abroad.

The service operates as an online platform where users can monetize their old travel equipment by allowing other users to rent it for short periods of time. The site allows users to rent out many different kinds of travel equipment, including guidebooks, wet suits, tents and even bikes. The service allows travelers to access gear at a fraction of the cost of purchasing the item. In addition, the user who posts the item is able to make money off of equipment that they may not be using anymore.
