Welcome to the sharing economy, where assets from driveways to empty car commuter seats can be leased to the highest bidder. The most lucrative part of the industry is the short term accommodation rental. Guests who once stayed in bland hotels are looking to let holiday homes, spare rooms, loft conversions, houseboats, attic spaces or caravans from Nice to Nantes.
