The travel sharing economy, which comprises services such as Uber and Airbnb, has quite literally taken off around the world.

Ease of accessibility and use means people are increasingly using such services during the course of their business day – getting to local meetings and when taking work-related trips overseas. The implications of your staff using these services for work purposes have mixed risk management outcomes for businesses.

Despite the popularity of travel sharing economy, there is not a lot of research on its use for business-related travel.

International SOS is conducting a short survey to determine how companies are responding to the rise of travel sharing services. The results of the survey will be shared in a whitepaper that outlines which services actually enhance safety and security, and which services may increase a person’s risk.

To be one of the first people to receive our whitepaper, please take 3 minutes to complete our anonymous survey via this link.

We thank you for your time, and encourage you to contact your account manager if you have any concerns about how your company is mitigating risks relating to travel share economies.
