Got a room to spare? This service facilitates short term letting over the net.
Ah, this is what the Internet was invented for (forget science and ARPANETS): creating entirely new markets by matching supply and demand, courtesy of a refreshing dose of transparency. Point in case: British MondaytoFriday, an online marketplace linking those looking for somewhere to stay during the working week with those who have a spare bedroom they wish to let from Monday to Friday. Both owners and lodgers register at MondaytoFriday, paying a one-off fee of GBP 10 for one month’s access. So, for professionals commuting too far and too often, working on a project away from home, or starting a job in another part of the country and in need of lodging or somewhere to stay on weekdays; OR for people who have a spare room they wish to let out on weekdays to earn some extra tax-free cash, without the hassle and intrusion of someone lodging full-time, this is one clever concept. While the company aims to cover the whole of the UK, Springwise hasn’t spotted competition outside the United Kingdom yet.
