Demand for authentic and personal experiences through travel is increasing annually. The Sharing Economy can provide ways to link travelers to ordinary people for a local experience. In doing so, it has the potential to widen sphere of beneficiaries from travel. But this also brings a range of challenges to destinations trying to manage visitor safety, control crowding, and ensure quality products. What can destinations do to avoid some of the pitfalls and instead leverage the sharing economy for more competitive, sustainable and inclusive destinations? The World Bank´s new report on the subject provides new insights and a way forward for destination managers.
