Abstract

Airbnb is the peer-to-peer accommodation network that gets most of the attention – positive and negative. But Airbnb is not the only one. The aim of this chapter is to provide an overview of existing peer-to-peer accommodation networks, explore their characteristics and propose a typology of peer-to-peer accommodation networks and booking sites.
